Goldriggers Of ’49: The Stooges are prospectors digging for gold in the desert when they discover the outlaw Cha-Cha Charlie with a bag of stolen gold. They follow him to his hideout which is a huge cave with a large stone door that opens to the command of ‘Open Sesame’. They get inside and encounter a hungry lion that chases them all over the cave. The Boys find a back door which has a sign stating, ‘To Open Door, Put Coin In Slot’. They empty their pockets trying to get the door open while the outlaw is gathering the coins on the other side of the door! / Ready, Jetset, Go: The Stooges have entered the ‘Air Race Of The Century’ with an old biplane against a field of jets; but they have outfitted their plane with fireworks rockets. During the race, The Boys light the first rocket and they zoom ahead! When they reach the turn, they light the retro-rocket, and the wings are stripped off the plane, yet they still zoom ahead. At the last turn, the last rocket is lit, stripping away the fuselage. The remainder of the plane breaks up and The Boys skid on their backsides over the finish line! / Behind The 8-Ball Express: The Stooges are train engineers assigned to get a trainload of money to the next town, but the dastardly villain Bull Whip disguised as a Little Old Lady tries to hijack the train. But this attempt is inadvertently foiled by Moe. Bull Whip then disguises himself as a cow on the tracks, but the Stooges don’t stop this time, and Bull Whip’s plan is again foiled. The Boys make it triumphantly to the next town, but soon learn that the money is actually counterfeit!
