The stooges are janitors in an office building. They stencil the wrong names on all the offices, causing a rich lady to mistakes Moe for "Omay", a famous decorator (the real Omay gets "Janitor, keep out" painted on his door.) She hires the boys to redecorate her house, which they proceed to ruin. More trouble ensues when the real Omay shows up. Adding to the chaos is the fact that Curly goes crazy whenever he sees tassels. Written by

This is one of the better Stooge shorts--not as good as the fabulous "Micro-Phonies," but close--and a good example of the boys in their prime. Curly is absolutely hilarious as a janitor-turned-artist who calls himself, in Pig Latin, "Umday" and is driven to a frenzy by the sight of tassels. Comedian Charley Chase directed this and several other Stooge shorts, and he did a first-rate job here. It's very well-paced, unlike some of the Stooge shorts of that period, which tended to be a little ragged--slow spots interrupted by the boys' slapstick bursts. This one starts out well, and progresses nicely to the typical frenetic Stooge ending. Stooge fans will be thoroughly satisfied.
