Busmen Wally Patch and Gus McNaughton go on holiday; if they didn't, there wouldn't be any movie, would there? Halfway through their vacation, Wally and Gus are mistaken for thieves. The boys manage to evade the law long enough to collar the real crooks, and to win a fat reward in the process. Star Wally Patch wrote the story on which Busman's Holiday was based, but he's generous with the laugh lines, doling as many out to Gus McNaughton as possible. Scriptwriter H.F. Maltby adapted Patch's story for the screen, reserving a plum on-camera role for himself.
