Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): The boy has only one crutch that he is seen using on both sides. The first time he's seen he's using it under the wrong arm. He should be using it on the side with the bad leg.See more »

One of their best & one of my favorites, 14 May 2009
Author: garysheski from United States

This one ranks right up there with 3 LITTLE PIRATES, as an excellent episode, a rather touching story, if you will, with our 3 boys doing what they can to help the little boy (Sonny Bupp). What makes it unique is that even though they hit each other with blunt objects, there's only a small handful of slaps and pokes, and no slapstick at all in any scene with the boy. Thoughfully arranged and worked out. A keeper in my book. Anyone unfamiliar with the Stooges, or who doesn't like them at all, should watch this one to see they could be relatively decent actors as well as comedians, in the way they interact with the boy and his sister. And accepting a pardon from FDR himself puts this one in the right historical context of the depression.
