Synopsis:
Bobo's latest craze is weightlifting, because detectives need to be tough. Meanwhile thugs plan to kidnap Miss Moka, a chimp movie star. The Sheriff stops by the movie set, and Bobo falls in love. The kidnappers grab Miss Moka, and Bobo follows the getaway trailer - because a taillight is out. Trying brute force, he gets smacked around, so uses brains instead of brawn by splashing salt water in a thug's eyes. Bobo gets a bit part in the movie - and chucks his weights out the window.
