Synopsis
THE GOLF SPECIALIST
Troublemaker J. Effingham Bellweather plays a round of farcical golf that is full of laughs with the resident detective's coy wife and an inept caddy at a Florida resort.

THE DENTIST
W.C. Fields plays a dentist in this comic short who is having a really bad day and lets everyone know it. It all begins when Fields' daughter professes her love for the ice deliveryman. The dentist is made late for his golf game because he must drive the iceman away during his daily stop. Then, after all sorts of golf catastrophes and frustrated displays of impatience, the dentist must go back to work, even though he is not in the mood, and deal with the chaotic antics of his unusual patients.

THE FATAL GLASS OF BEER
A man's parents await his return to their isolated Yukon cabin when he is released from prison. The son, wanting to experience "big city" lights, was imprisoned for pilfering bonds after drinking the "fatal glass of beer." The episode also features the infamous "Ain't Fit for Man nor Beast" act.
