Storyline

The stooges are cheated into trading their restaurant for Thunderbolt, a washed up race horse, and enter the horse racing industry. When Curly feeds Thunderbolt some chili pepperinos, he runs like crazy towards the nearest water. The boys quickly discover Thunderbolt's sudden burst of speed and enter Thunderbolt in a big race. With jockey Larry feeding Thunderbolt the pepperinos, and Moe and Curly on a motorcycle leading him with a bucket of water, they win the race. Finally, the stooges enjoy the good life as Thunderbolt eats peanuts out of a large bowl in celebration. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Very Funny Stooge Short Film!
27 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first got to see this Three Stooges when I got the Three Stooges Collection Volume Two, and I watched this when I got to it, and I thought that this was a very funny stooge short film! This Three Stooges short film is really filled with a lot of laughs, especially the scenes with the chili pepperinos! I remember that I was really laughing away during the horse race, because Curly accidentally gave their horse those chili pepperinos! This Three Stooges short is like a lot of other Three Stooges shorts, it is really filled with a lot of laughs that guarantees a splendid time for all! I was just laughing away when I first saw this short.

This is one Three Stooges short that is really going to cause you to laugh and laugh away like it did to me, because you are going to think that you should have seen this Three Stooges short film a very long time ago, because you will think that it is just so funny!

10/10
