Porky and Bugs stow away in a camel's crate thinking they are going to the circus. Instead, the camel is being returned to his home in the Sahara Desert. After a long trip in a ship's cargo hold, Porky and Bugs arrive in port where they are discovered and mistakenly sign-up for the Foreign Legion. After weeks as camel-tenders, Bugs and Porky slip away from a patrol and get lost in the desert. There they are captured by the bandit Ali Kazam and Bugs has to quick-talk his way out of the jam with the aid of some quick-growing carrots.
