The stooges find a crippled boy and his sister living in their dumpyard shack. To raise money to pay for the little boys operation they buy a phony treasure map from a con man. Thinking the treasure is buried beneath an old house, the boys start digging and wind up in a US treasury vault where they are promptly arrested. The president (FDR) gives them amnesty and arranges for the boy's operation. Written by

The boy has only one crutch that he is seen using on both sides. The first time he's seen he's using it under the wrong arm. He should be using it on the side with the bad leg. See more »
This is the house I was telling you about, boys. A treasure was buried there by Captain Kidd's kid.
Just a minute! You have to pay us $200 for the privilege of digging it up!
Two hundred or nothin'.
Oh, we'll take it for nothin'!

The Stoogies Are Soft-Hearted Guys The boys have had six months of bad luck prospecting and return home ("The City Dump!"). They barely make it as the tires keep blowing out. There is a donkey in the back seat. (Don't ask.)
The Stooges have a good heart.....really good since when they come back to the shack they see some disabled little boy who had moved in to their place with his "sis." The kid ("Jimmy") volunteers to leave but they can't to that to him....better they are homeless, than him. This is one reason we always root for these guys.
Anyway, the main storyline gets set up right after Curly tries to find a couple of good tires at the junkyard to put on their car. Moe finds a can filled with coins and the boys now think the real gold mine must be in the junkyard. Shortly afterward, they find out its the kids' life savings and he's using it toward getting an operation! ha ha - typical Three Stooges corny storyline, but it makes the boys look good, as they volunteer to try to get the money so the kid can have the operation.
What follows next is total insanity, not unusual for a Three Stooges short. It all starts when the boys take the boys money to the bank where at least he'd get some interest on it. At the bank, a couple of crooks spot them as "easy marks" (ya think?) and the story goes on from there.
Overall, it's another fun Stooges and definitely worth your time.
Note: The older sister was played by Harley Wood, an actress who was tall and pretty but didn't have much a film career. However, she went on to do a number of good things including song-writing. The young boy, meanwhile, was Sonny Bupp and he wound up playing Orson Welles son in the famous film "Citizen Kane." He died in 2007 and had the distinction of being the oldest living cast member of that ultra-famous film.
