Summary, etc.:
Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein: Chick and Wilbur are two railroad clerks who are assigned to checking a shipment of two crates, the last remains of Dracula and Frankenstein's monster. Of course the monsters are still alive in their coffins and so the comedy chase begins, with both a stray mad scientist and the Wolfman getting involved before very long.
Mexican hayride: Bud and Lou crash a Mexican bullfight to escape arrest as suspected confidence men.
Abbott and Costello meet the killer, Boris Karloff: The scene is a swank hotel where a prominent lawyer is murdered. Bud Abbott is Casey, the house detective, and Lou Costello is Freddie, the bellhop. Although there are plenty of suspicious characters about, the murder is pinned on Freddie, who sets out to catch the real killer and clear himself.
Abbott and Costello in the Foreign Legion: Two wrestling promoters follow their star fighter to Algiers and are tricked into joining the Foreign Legion.
Abbott and Costello meet the invisible man: Abbott and Costello help an accused killer (who can make himself invisible) prove his innocence. Newly-graduated private eyes Bud & Lou go undercover to prove the young man's innocence.
Comin' round the mountain: A search for buried treasure sends Abbott and Costello into the backwoods where they create their usual havoc, this time in the midst of a Winfield-McCoy feud.
Lost in Alaska: Two volunteer firemen rescue a gold prospector from suicide. However, once they discover that the police mistakenly want them for murder, they travel with the prospector to Alaska to help chase his girl. Once they arrive, the men discover that most of the town wants the prospector dead. It's up to Abbot and Costello to keep him alive, or else San Francisco is ready to hang them for the murder.
Abbott and Costello go to Mars: Bud and Lou think they've landed on Mars after accidentally pushing the launch button in the rocket ship they're loading, but they're actually in New Orleans at Mardi Gras. They take off for real when they're hijacked by a couple of escaped convicts and soon land amongst the all-female population of Venus.
