In his crystal ball, Bimbo shows Betty "the gone-by days of your naked youth," bringing up a scene of a very young (and nude!) Betty taking a bath. Then the crystal ball reveals Betty cast adrift on the ocean, and landing on a haunted jungle island, where she removes her wet clothes, loses them, and finds tree leaves to cover herself.
Bimbo conjures up a "fortune" in which he rescues the shipwrecked Betty. "My hero!" squeaks Betty... but Bimbo turns out to be a better prophet than he thought, as an unsavory group of ghosts boil out of the crystal ball and chase Betty and Bimbo through a jungle that appears out of nowhere.
The pair finally evade their pursuers through one of the earliest uses of the old "hollow log over the cliff" trick (these apparently being the world's least buoyant ghosts).
