Storyline

The stooges are firemen at a station that still uses horses to pull the engines. A salesman who wants to sell the chief some modern equipment plants gun powder in one of the engines. The chiefs daughter catches him and after a chase both are knocked unconscious. When a fire starts, the stooges respond to the alarm, but don't realize its their firehouse that's burning! Somehow they manage to arrive in time to save the girl, and the villain gets his just desserts. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Good Three Stooges short!
5 August 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The Three Stooges has always been some of the many actors that I have loved. I love just about every one of the shorts that they have made. I love all six of the Stooges (Curly, Shemp, Moe, Larry, Joe, and Curly Joe)! All of the shorts are hilarious and also star many other great actors and actresses which a lot of them was in many of the shorts! In My opinion The Three Stooges is some of the greatest actors ever and is the all time funniest comedy team!

This is a very funny Three Stooges short. Its hilarious. The Stooges are a little different in this one. Dick Curtis is very good in this one and his character is a good one. Chester Conklinand and Lola Jensen perform well as father daughter! The scenes with the fire house mouse and the bulldog is very funny. There is another fire fighter Three Stooges short called False alarms which it is a great one! I recommend this one!
