Set in a western town, the stooges are working as waiters in a saloon with the three girls they hope to marry. The proprietor of the saloon is a crook who, with his partner, has buried $40,000 of stolen money. The boys go prospecting in hopes of raising enough money to pay off the debts of their fiancée father, who owes money to their boss. They dig up the stolen money, which the crooks recognize as their loot and abscond with. A wild chase ensues, ending with the bad guy's car crashing into the Sheriff's office. Written by

I'll cook the supper. How about scrambled eggs smothered in steak?
Sounds swell to me. Where are the eggs?
On top of the burro, so they'll be nice and fresh in the sun.
Yeah, we'll... get goin' before we starve here. C'mon.
[Curly takes the egg container and tosses it to Moe, who catches it]
Here you go. A sack of flour comin' down!

Ya nitwit, now you broke the eggs!

It's not the old west that the Three Stooges are doing their thing in Yes We Have No Bonanza. Instead Moe, Larry, and Curly are in the more modern west of Roy Rogers B films with people using automobiles as much as horses.
The boys are working as waiters, singing waiters even in a saloon where they hope to make a stake and go prospecting. Lending authenticity to this western spoof is traditional movie western villain Dick Curtis who owns the saloon the Stooges work in.
Both in the town scenes and later out on the desert I have to say that Dick Curtis looked like he was as enjoying this as much as the Stooges. In a sense Curtis was like Douglass Dumbrille who was a serious villain in many films, but then did comic villains and did them well with people like Abbott&Costello and the Marx Brothers.
I guess the title sort of gives it away that the boys don't get fame and fortune, just a lot of laughs.
