A mysterious burglar, wearing only a nightshirt, is terrorizing Selkirk College. The dean calls in an expert -- the school's new criminology instructor, Dr. Chase (Charley Chase). He immediately pegs the prowler as "a somnambulist addicted to kleptomania." Not only is he right, it turns out that Chase himself is the sleepwalking perpetrator. Back at home it doesn't take him long to figure this out, and in a panic he chains himself to a chair, thinking that'll keep him safely inside. It doesn't -- he wakes up a little while later to see his living room is crammed with stolen goods. And he gets into even more trouble in a conscious state -- while chasing a noisy dog, he winds up in the girls' dormitory and even more mayhem ensues. Columbia remade this two-reeler twice more, as Go Chase Yourself in 1948 and Pardon My Nightshirt in 1956, each time with Andy Clyde.
