Playing violin at McGurn's cafe in exchange for a bowl of soup, Prof. Perriwinkle's rendition of Pop Goes the Weasel turns waiter Rameses (Shemp Howard) into a fighting whirlwind, knocking out customer Killer Kilduff (Joe Palma), the boxing champ. Promoter Jonesy immediately signs Rameses and Perriwinkle, and the three set out to make Rameses the new champ. At the championship bout, the Prof's violin is smashed and he begins a mad rush to find another source of the magic tune. Rameses is left to stall and keep Kilduff from pounding him into the canvas.

Professor Perriwinkle is played by former Hal Roach director and screenwriter Charley Rogers, a life-long friend of Stan Laurel's who appeared as the butler in Laurel & Hardy's OUR WIFE (1931).

A remake of PUNCH DRUNKS (1934). A couple of the longer shots of Prof running up and down Larchmont Blvd. are actually stock footage of Larry Fine from that early Three Stooges comedy.

Wedding plans for the Three Stooges are cut short when the father of their brides is wrongly jailed. Moe comes up with a plan for them to get into jail and bust the father out. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts to get arrested, they end up walking through the front door of the county jail. To get the future father-in-law's job back as warden and expose the criminals, the Stooges go undercover as gentlemen at the gangster's dinner party to take pictures as evidence. The lengthy rumba dance provides plenty of time for Moe to shoot the photos, while Curly creates a diversion by exposing various undergarments.
