Joe McDoakes goes to the hospital suffering from acute indigestion, and draws an operation-enthusiast quack for a doctor. Joe is opened up so much that a zipper is installed. Later, he is somewhat surprised when he is mistakenly informed that he has given birth.Written by

But I heard of cases where the doctor operated for appendicitis and the patient died of gallstones.
Dr. Van Slaughter:
Fear not, young man. If I say a patient has appendicitis, that is what he'll die of.

Joe McDoakes (George O'Hanlon) is having trouble sleeping so he goes to the kitchen where he ends up overeating and having a major stomach ache. He goes to the hospital where a zany doctor decides to operate and operate and operate again. This spoof of doctors and the medical field is pretty funny and manages to get quite a few laughs in its short running time. The best sequence deals with McDoakes getting well only to have the doctors discover another issue, which seems to have been a common joke back in the day just like it is today. O'Hanlon is at the top of his game delivering another fine performance and Fritz Feld is also quite good as the doctor. Fans of the series know what to expect from these movies and this one here fits all the typical rules and laughter.
