Laundries are big business in the mining town of Digalittledeeper.  The ’Tub and Scrub’ is operated by Olympia Klenz and Sweet Sally.  The young sheriff is in love with Sally, but every time he gets close he turns into a babbling fool.  Meanwhile, our villain, Phineas Flatworm, discovers Olympia has been rinsing gold flecks from miners’ laundry for years, and she’s amassed a tidy sum.  The villain figures if he had the only laundry in town, he’d make a million! How will the sheriff stop this dastardly villain and win the heart of Sweet Sally?
