The Stooges' friend Jerry informs them of a great money-making scam: buy insurance, go to the insurance doctor and claim insanity, and be paid $500 a month for the rest of their lives. Eager for easy money, they take a policy out on Curly, and then proceed to bring him into the insurance doctor, Dr. D. Lerious's office with Curly masquerading as a dog. Curly's performance is so convincing that the alarmed doctor demands that Curly be prepared for "cerebrum decapitation." And, the chase begins.

The western song in this film is titled "I'm a Cowboy From the Western Plains," an original composition by Jules White; see The Three Stooges Journal # 91 (Fall 1999). It can also be heard in NUTTY BUT NICE (1940).
