Although Hal Roach had already decided to officially team up Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, he cast Hardy as Max Davidson's sidekick in this two-reeler about a couple of miners who strike it rich. "Cherokee" Cohen (Davidson) and "Happy" Hopey (Hardy) strike gold, and the claim is purchased by Bat Carnahan. Cohen and Hopey take their newfound wealth to New York, where they check into a swank hotel and their uncouth behavior makes them sorely stand out. But Hopey finds a date when he helps out Viola (Viola Richardson), who has just been fired from her job as a telephone operator. Cohen finds his own girl, Martha (Martha Sleeper), under similar circumstances. They go out for dinner, and their lack of social skills infuriates the manager. When he berates the guys, Hopey throws a creampuff at him. In typical Hal Roach fashion, this escalates into an all-out food fight. The fracas finally comes to an end and Cohen and Hopey are ordered to pay for the damage done. The manager brags that he managed to get through the ordeal unscathed, but he's spoken too soon -- a new tray of pies is delivered and Cohen and Hopey make sure they find their mark.
