This is the first of several Stooge shorts involving a dumbwaiter, usually involving Curly accidentally destroying the floor of the elevator, causing injury to Larry and Moe. The dumbwaiter would reappear in Nutty But Nice (1940). This is also the first of sixteen Stooge shorts using the word "three" in the title. See more »

In the early to mid 1930s, football comedies were rather popular. The Marx Brothers' "Horse Feathers" is the best and most famous of these but others such as Wheeler and Woolsey, the Disney studio and others made some screwball football films as well. "Three Little Pigskins" is the Three Stooge's efforts in the genre. As for the title, it's a play on the title to the super-successful Disney short, "The Three Little Pigs".
The film begins with the Stooges out bumming for coins. At the same time, some gamblers (led by the scary looking Walter Long) are talking about setting up a game featuring three fantastic college ball players, the 'three horsemen'. Oddly, they think the Stooges are these three players. What happens next is, oddly, not nearly as funny as you'd expect. It has its moments but all in all, the laughs are a bit few and far between. Not bad...just not all that good. I say see "Horse Feathers" instead.
