The Three Stooges work at Dimsel’s Drug Store where they befriend Schuyler Davis, the owner of the shop next door, who is attempting to build a time machine. With the boys “help,” the time machine transports the boys, Schuyler and his girlfriend Diane back in time to ancient Greece during the reign of the lecherous King Oedious, a distant ancestor of Dimsel. Odius has a yearning for Diane, and banishes Schuyler and the boys into servitude at sea. After a shipwreck, The Three Stooges and Schuyler escape. In the Gladiator arena, they bill Schuyler as Hercules. The real Hercules gets wind of their game and confronts them, but the Stooges convince Hercules to help them rescue Diane and return the rightful king to the throne.
