Storyline

A vaudeville show is playing, but the bottom billed act of Heely, Heely, Heely & Heely (who have the first names Ted, Larry, Curly & Moe) have just been fired because Ted has been fooling around with girls telling them he can get them into show business, which in turn always gets him into trouble. Their next job is as waiters in a restaurant that has a floor show. Since they end up not being very adept waiters which causes much havoc amongst themselves and with the customers, they may as well sit back, eat the food, watch and enjoy (sort of) the floor show and in turn take over the floor show, much to the restaurant manager's chagrin. But the havoc continues and Ted has a fitting conclusion to his problems. Written by Huggo

A little bit o' Stooges--a whole lotta singin'!
3 May 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is the second Three Stooges short and it's obvious that MGM Studios had no idea what to do with the boys. Part of this confusion may have been because the Stooges still were not the same lovable team we have all come to know. Instead, they were essentially the vaudeville team of Ted Healy and His Stooges--with the obnoxious and totally untalented and unlikable Healy as the front man. In real life, Healy was an alcoholic and bitter man and his 'Stooges' resented his taking the lion's share of the money and headlining the act--they also resented his treatment of them. Incidentally, shortly after the three left this team, Healy was beaten to death in a bar fight.

As for this short, it has some lovely Stooge moments but unfortunately there is also LOTS and LOTS of singing and dancing--little of which was done by the Stooges. Because of this, the short is very frustrating to most Stooge fans, though die-hard fans and film historians would no doubt find this interesting.
