The Stooges are three lackluster firemen, taking showers
when the fire alarm sounds, almost losing their jobs as a result.
Shortly thereafter, Curly decides to sneak out of the firestation
to go to his girlfriends party where two other girls insist that Curly
call Moe and Larry to join them. When a simple telephone call won't
get them out, Curly steps outside and triggers the city's fire alarm
system, which rings not only at the Stooges' firehouse but at every
other station in the county. Moe and Larry who are left behind because
they were locked in a closet, make it to the girls house by borrowing
the chief's brand new automobile, arriving minutes before the other
fire departments respond to the alarm. Disaster strikes, however,
when the Stooges and the girls take a pleasure cruise in the cheif's
car, totalling it in an accident. The Stooges make a breakaway in
a Bekins moving truck with the cheif following shortly behind them.
Did you know the "half-empty, half-full" gas gag was first
developed and used in the Stooges' vaudeville act in the early thirties?
