Synopsis
When the Three Dimwits go mountain climbing, they run into old Uncle Josh, a man who was afraid of money. It seems whenever he needed any, he would go into some sort of a trance, and when he came out of it, Josh received handfuls of the stuff! Needless to say, he was afraid he'd get caught and go to jail...that is, until the Flash stepped in!
