Mike the Cop catches Lou and Stinky fighting in the street and talks them into solving their problems by having a wresting match at the policemen's gymnasium, with the winner getting a $25 bond. Bud and Lou trick Stinky into eating 25 malted milks so he gets sick and can't wrestle, but instead his little brother substitutes for him--but his "little" brother is a giant bruiser named Ivan the Terrible.

This is one of the funnier episodes in the series. Lou and Stinky have what is probably their best running fight--it goes on for probably five minutes straight at the beginning of the show, and it's hilarious. The wrestling match itself between Lou and Ivan the Terrible--with Mike the cop as the referee--is also quite funny, although it appears that a stuntman doubles for Lou in most of the "action" shots, which is understandable because Costello was in his 50s at the time. There's also a bit that the duo had used before about scamming a restaurant owner out of a bill for a huge meal, which really doesn't have anything to do with the "plot", but it's still pretty good.

All in all, a very enjoyable episode.
