Nertsery Rhymes is the first M-G-M film with Ted Healy and His Stooges (and "Bonny")
30 December 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

What I'm reviewing is historical for this is the first M-G-M short film that featured Ted Healy and his Stooges (Moe, Larry, and Curly). It's also the first of many appearances with them of a now-forgotten female player named Bonnie Bonnell-credited as Bonny here-who at the time was dating Healy. Ted plays the "father" of the boys as Howard, Fine, and Howard keep asking for a bedtime story while Healy keeps trying to sneak out at night for a drink. Quite fascinating seeing this early version of this now-iconic act what with all the shenanigans and in two-strip Technicolor, to boot! Doesn't make a whole lot of sense especially when a couple of musical numbers from other pictures are shoehorned in. And this Bonnie lady seems to be from another planet when she performs. Still, I laughed plenty when I watched this-having seen the Stooges segments previously on Leonard Maltin's "The Lost Stooges" VHS tape-again on YouTube. So on that note, I recommend Nertsery Rhymes for any Stooges completists out there.
