As plumbers, the Stooges are summoned
to the Norfleet mansion to recover a valuable diamond ring which slipped
down a wash basin. Instead the Stooges wreak havok on the house by
destroying the existing plumbing and creating more problems with the
house than existed when they first arrived. This is really nothing
new with the Stooges, neither is a pie fight, which is how this short
ends, a massive splat-fest.
Did you know that this short incorporates
stock footage clips from Curly Howard shorts A-Plumbing We Will
Go (4/19/40) and pie fight material from Half-Wit's Holiday (1/9/47)?

(10/6/49), using stock footage. New segments: Moe and Larry search
for the missing ring in a sink and throw pies at Allen (Kenneth MacDonald).
Joe Palma is featured as "Shemp" in one shot honking the horn
in the trios jeep. Christine McIntyre is likewise doubled in some scenes.
