Synopsis
The Kamikaze Krooks continue their attempts to rob the Rich eatate. Shoo-Pie, who can walk on the ceiling, is also a failure after Irona discovers a cobweb on a pillar where the crook is from behind and swats the crook out the window. The ultimate weapon is a tough guy, but he is attracted to a cake which Chef Pierre baked, and he devours the whole cake and gets sick because Pierre had made the cake with plaster instead of flour, and Nurse Jenny took him in the private clinic. After repeated failures, the W.W.C.A. is now closed for good as the Riches return to Richville.

Synopsis
Mr. Rich's friend claims he has so much money, yet money means nothing when it comes to playing golf. Mr. Rich claims that money made him a better golfer, but his friend doesn't believe it, and will donate $50,000 to charity if Mr. Rich can prove that money can help him make a shot. He does succeed, thanks to two rows of stacks of banknotes which help deflect the ball back onto the right path, resulting in a hole-in-one, and his friend is quite shocked.
