  • One night in the tropics: Abbott and Costello play "two stooges employed by Roscoe, a crooked nightclub owner. Having financed a dubious 'love insurance' policy, Roscoe wants the boys to ensure that Steve marries his hard-to-get girlfriend as they travel to fun in the sun aboard a luxury ocean liner bound for San Marcos, South America."
  • In the navy: Two sailors bound for duty on the high seas befriend a singing star who has ditched the limelight for a quiet enlisted life, and try to help him evade an ambitious reporter intent on using his new identity for her big story
  • Hold that ghost: Strange things start to happen when Abbott and Costello claim their inheritance, an abandoned roadhouse
  • Keep 'em flying: Bud and Lou enlist in the Army Air Corps and get caught up in a love triangle
  • Ride 'em cowboy: The duo head to the Lazy S ranch to hide after Lou accidentally proposes to an Indian girl
  • Pardon my sarong: Bud and Lou travel to the south seas where Lou is mistaken for a legendary god
  • Who done it?: Slapstick comedy thriller in which two radio writers become involved in a real murder while they are recording a whodunit play
