In the depression era Laurel and Hardy, descendants of a long line of cooks and butlers, are seeking employment against great odds. When convinced there isn’t a job to be had in America, they hit off on a tour of foreign lands.

Same situash obtains there, and they return to America in the lush era of employment. They are grabbed by Mary Boland, social-climber, to handle chores at a dinner she and her husband, Henry O’Neill, are giving in honor of David Leland, who plays the boy regent of a mythical kingdom.
