The Stooges are veterinarians in their very own unusual
dog hospital. Garcon, the pet of a very wealthy woman (Mrs. Bedford),
is a prize pooch who is about to be entered in an uppety dog show.
Two crooks (Tony and Duke) up to "no good", pose as newspaper
reporters so they can sneak in and steal the Bedford dog and hold
it for ransom. Unable to recover the canine in time for his delivery
back to Mrs. Bedford, the Stooges disguise another dog with similar
features. They cover him with black mattress stuffing to make him
resemble the real Garcon. At the Bedford home, when the boys introduce
their Garcon look-a-like, the maid accidentally sucks off the pup's
disguise with her vaccuum. The Stooges then frantically enlist the
aid of a hunting dog to sniff out the missing pooch. Successful, the
Stooges are able to track down the crooks in their hideout. They get
inside and overpower Tony and Duke, and locate Garcon to find that
Garcon is a she and she's sporting a freshly baked batch of puppies.
Curly's fight routine with the bad guys was repeated by Moe in Crash
Goes the Hash (1944).
Hospital SD: 4 (T 12/27 to F 12/30/38).
