The misadventures of the monks of the Brothers of Benevolence Monks at the San Fernando Abbey, a monastery founded by Brother Bungle. In the pilot, the monks attempt to raise $5,000 to help the nearby children's orphanage by selling the valuable painting of Brother Bungle that hangs in the monastery.

In the DVD introduction to the pilot, actor Gino Conforti recalls that the plot was inspired by a bit remembered from a Broadway variety show such as "New Faces" or "La Plume De Ma Tante" where a slightly built monk tugged on the abbey bell-pull, which then lifted him off his feet, up out of view of the audience. In the pilot, that bit belongs to Conforti. See more
