Stan and Ollie play bumbling circus performers who inadvertently drive the circus into bankruptcy. The circus can't pay them their wages so they are given a gorilla and a flea circus as payment. Bedlam ensues.
This was a very enjoyable romp in which Laurel and Hardy drive a circus into bankruptcy, are paid a flea circus and a chimp instead of their wages, and are endangered by a jealous hotel owner who just happens to get their chimp confused with his errant wife of the same name. Essential comedy from the 30's.
