The Three Stooges are Zookeepers, who are told to watch over the elephants. Larry and Curly Joe will do all the work, while Moe proceeds to do nothing. While the stooges are working, Moe plays checkers with a monkey, and is astounded to find that a monkey has beaten him. Moe confronts Larry and Curly Joe, and asks them why they aren't working. They explain to Moe, that they got an elephant to do all of their work for peanuts. The Three Stooges attempt to wash the elephant.
The Three stooges are rolling in with a barrel. Moe tells Curly to watch over the orangatang, and Larry to watch over a sick hoard of buffalo. Curly Joe comes back with a plate, and Larry has gotten himself something to eat, while Moe gladly feeds him. After a while of looking at the animals, Moe hears Larry and Curly Joe's yelling his name. He comes over and sees that there locked in a cage, because they were outsmarted by a chimp. Moe goes inside to tell them how stupid they really are, only to have the door slammed by the Monkey, and locked. Moe ends with, "Well I'm a Monkey's Uncle".
