Mutts to You (1938)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Stooges short has the boys seeing a baby on a doorstep so they take him home with them as they think he has been abandoned. Soon they learn that the parents have reported him missing so they must find a way to return him without getting busted. This isn't one of the guys better shorts but there are enough laughs here to make it worth viewing at least once. I think the highlight of the film isn't really a laugh but we get a scene where the boys are running a dog wash. There's a Dalmatian that gets put on an assembly line where he gets washed, scrubbed and done up and I'm amazed by the performance of the dog. I was really surprised any mutt would sit there and let all this stuff happen to him and he does come across as a good sport. He sticks out more than the film itself as there aren't too many good jokes that work here. There are a few funny moments as the guys try to sneak the kid pass their landlord and another decent sequence when the boys try to escape from a cop. The rest of the jokes are pretty much misses including one where Moe and Larry pretend to be from China.
