In an abandoned hotel, idle ghosts get drunk, play slot machines and line up for their relief checks. Two chimpanzees and their big, mopey dog venture inside. The ghosts are thrilled at this new opportunity for mischief. A ghostly hand comes out of the wall and snatches Jill, the girl chimp. Jock, the boy chimp, and the dog separate to go look for her. The dog finds a ghostly fire hydrant that changes to a cat. Jock finds a ghost who taunts him with a cowbell and a trumpet. The dog will suffer electric shock from a light fixture and Jock will dodge gunfire from a battleship before they find Jill and make their escape. Written by
