Synopsis
In the intervening years, Beamer's mob has changed, as the boys have grown weaker and the lady has put on a few pounds. They jump into a beat-up convertible only to discover that Funnyman is their chauffeur, and the Screwball Scrapper takes them on a wild ride into an elevator entrance of an old building. After many unsuccessful attempts to dispose of their driver, the gang is apprehended with a crate of the Mafoosky jewels in their possession, and a jealous Sgt. Harrigan kicks Funnyman in his steel-plated rear.

Once again, Sam escapes from a Police van and runs smack into the clutches of Funnyman on his motorcycle.

Funnyman is led by a girl into a dark room for a game of post office and he is promptly cracked over the head by Slim. Recovering, Funnyman eventually rounds up Slim during a pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey game.
