Joe (George O'Hanlon) and Alice (Phyllis Coates) play an ugly husband and wife who are suffering from deformed teeth that stick out. Both sneak out to have plastic surgery done to where their teeth are normal and they meet each other in a bar not knowing that they're actually already married. If you can believe the idea that a married couple can have their teeth fixed and then not know one another then you might laugh at this short. However, if like me that entire idea sounds extremely lame then you're probably not going to have much fun. I personally thought this was one of the weakest shorts in the series as there's not a single laugh to be had and the entire "meeting new people" stuff in the bar just came off very lame and unfunny. The only person who gets a single laugh was Lester Dorr who plays the bartender who can't believe the "poetry" coming from Joe's mouth. The stuff in the hospital isn't funny and once back at home the stuff isn't funny. The one good thing about this entry is that Coates returned as Alice after missing several films in the series. It was nice seeing her back in the part but sadly the weak screenplay just didn't give her much to do. This one here is certainly for die-hard fans of the series only.
