Kid Boots is a put-upon clerk in a men's tailor shop. When Malcolm Waite storms in to buy a new suit, the service he receives is so inept that he destroys the shop trying to throttle Boots.

Boots flees for his life, stopping only to make Bow's acquaintance. Attempting to hide in a hotel, Boots becomes an accidental witness to the infidelity of a rich man's wife. The rich man, Tom Sterling, has a $100,000.00 settlement suit at stake. So he keeps Boots close to him as a character witness.

Boots and his new friend lay low at a posh golf resort, and all is well until it is discovered Clara McCoy and the bullying Big Boyle also work there. Big Boyle eventually subjects Boots to a brutal massage and electroshock treatments. Boots escapes only when the bully laughs so hard he accidentally sits in his own electric chair.

Boots oversleeps the day of the important divorce hearing. The only way to reach the courthouse on time is on horseback. McCoy follows Boots, and the jealous Big Boyle follows her. This results in a hair-raising stunt chase where the characters take turn dangling from precipices and swaying on teeter-totters.

Boots ends up parachuting onto the courthouse roof, arriving just in time to deliver his vital testimony.
