In the opening sequence of a three-minute, live-action color wraparound, Moe and Larry are treating Curly Joe like a servant until he receives a telegram saying that he has inherited a million dollars from his rich uncle Dudley. Moe and Larry then start giving Curly Joe the royal treatment. In the end sequence, the boys find out that the telegram was meant for someone else, and that Curly Joe isn't really rich- so things go back to normal.
Plans to animate such other comedians as the Marx Brothers and Jack E. Leonard were shelved.
The release date for all 156 cartoons is considered fall 1965, as that is the delivery date by syndicators to the stations. According to an advance trade ad by Heritage Productions, the series was sold to 37 major markets in 30 days.
