Plot

The Stooges are fiddlers at the court of Old King Cole (Vernon Dent). They are forbidden by the king to marry their sweethearts until Princess Alicia (Virginia Hunter) weds Prince Gallant III of Rhododendron "when the flowers bloom in the Spring." Evil magician Murgatroyd (Philip Van Zandt) has his own plans to marry Alicia, and promptly abducts her. While the Stooges are trying to apply new horseshoes to their horses, they accidentally fall through the floor where they find the Princess bound and gagged. The Magician meanwhile gets the King's agreement that if he can recover the Princess he can marry her. His assistant leaves his magic box by climbing through a hole, the plan being to push the Princess through it. Moe and Larry insulting the guards, making them run out. Shemp frees the Princess, but he and the others are captured. However the guards are distracted when the magician's assistant walks past, following her. The Stooges escape up the rope ladder into the box, which Murgatroyd is sawing through and then sticking swords into, hurting the Stooges. Finally the box breaks and the Stooges fall out, just before Alicia runs in and tells her father who abducted her. The Stooges attacks the magician, but stop when the assistant walks past, they, Murgatroyd and Cole following her, save for Shemp, who asks for water. When the Princess gives him water it spurts out of him due to the magicians' swords.
