The Stooges are artists (Moe is a sculptor, Larry is a music composer, and Curly is a painter) living in Paris. When the landlord comes after the overdue rent, the boys skip out and wind up accidentally joining the French Foreign Legion that they confuse with the American Legion. Posted to the desert, their assignment is to guard Captain Gorgonzola from the natives. When the captain is kidnapped, the boys must disguise themselves and try to rescue their captain.
This is the first short in which the Stooges sing the "Lollipop Song," which they would sing again in Self-Made Maids.
This is the first short in which the Stooges are told they must don a disguise and they disguise themselves in Santa Claus outfits. That bit would be reused in the Shemp short Malice in the Palace.
The title Wee Wee Monsieur is a parody of Oui, oui, Monsieur (French for "Yes, sir").
Curly puts the finishing touches on his painting.
Curly: "At last, it's finished!"
Moe and Larry: "What?"
Curly: "My masterpiece! Now all we gotta do is sell it!"
Moe: "Well, we better. You know the landlord is threatening to throw us out."
Curly: "What's he squawkin' about? We only owe him for eight months!"
