There Auto Be A Law: The Boys have entered in the annual auto race. Dirty Dan Dimwitty will do anything to win, fixing it so that the Stooges car doesn’t start. The car coasts backwards into a barnyard where an angry bull butts it, sending the car flying into the race and passing Dirty Dan. The car, now completely out of control, not only wins the race then careens crazily out of sight. / That Old Shell Game: The Boys are detectives at the Tea House of Karate Carl. His pearl business is in danger from thieves and it’s up to the Stooges to solve the crime. The thief has constructed a one-man diving bell to look like a giant oyster shell and is robbing oyster beds at will. As he tries to run from The Boys, the thief accidentally runs into the mouth of a giant whale. The whale spouts the bad guy out into the waiting hands of the Stooges. While Larry, Moe & Curly-Joe capture the thief, they also destroy the oyster bed in the process! / Hold That Line: The Western Front lines of communication have been disrupted, and General Nuisance sends the Stooges into enemy territory with a phone. They are eventually captured by General Von Vonce and put to immediate execution. Von Vonce gives last requests to the Stooges just as the phone rings. It’s General Nuisance who relays a message of ‘Surrender or be blown to smithereens’. Von Vonce counters that with the Stooges as hostages, he wouldn’t dare. Boom!
