As Larry runs down the street for the first time, a voice can be heard saying "Hold it!....Stand back!" (obviously the director or a production assistant asking onlookers to get out of the way). See more »

"Punch Drunks" is a very good Three Stooges' comedy, with a typically silly situation leading to a lot of confusion and laughs. Moe is a struggling boxing manager who is eating lunch when he discovers that his waiter, Curly, transforms into a formidable fighter whenever he hears the song "Pop Goes the Weasel". Curly soon gets the chance to fight the champ. The fight sequence, cross-cut with Larry's frantic attempts to provide the needed musical accompaniment, is filled with laughs, and caps off a very funny short film. All three Stooges get the chance to perform at their best in this one.
