They ruin a piano and generally make a mess of the party, but the hostess passes them off as vaudeville comedians and they are invited to join the guests on a fox hunt. Written by

During shooting, a small container of red ants in Moe's pocket broke. All through the scene he was scratching, squirming and slapping himself on the neck, face and seat of his pants. "It was very funny," Moe recalled, "to everyone but me". See more »

The boys play exterminators whose jobs are threatened unless they drum up some business. Invading a swank party, they proceed to litter the mansion with mice, moths, and ants. Hired by the mansion matriarch (Clara Kimball Young) to clean up the place, the Stooges are dressed in fox hunting outfits to match her guest's clothes. Will the Stooges finish the job despite themselves?
"Ants in the Pantry" offers top-notch Stooge nonsense with pleasant results. The "Cossack Dance" is offered in a Stooge film for the first time. This dance occurs when someone gets something down their back. In this case, a party guest gets a mouse down their shirt collar, and he leaps and wails. The Stooges, thinking he's dancing, begin clapping their hands in unison and dancing around in their own maniacal way. The "Cossack Dance" is seen in several of their films over the series' long run.
An early classic. 9 out of 10.
