One Three Stooges Short That Is Going To Leave You In Stitches!, 27 April 2010
Author: Humphrey Fish from United States

I don't really remember the first time that I saw this Three Stooges short, but then I watched it a second time when I got the Three Stooges Collection Volume Two, and I thought that this short was really funny! It is one Three Stooges short film that is going to leave you in stitches! You are really going to be splitting your sides when you see Curly get in a fight with a real gorilla after it scared away the film crew! You are really going to be wishing that you had seen this Three Stooges short film quite a long time ago, because you will really think that this Three Stooges short is very funny and riot-filled!

I just plain love the Three Stooges, I have seen a lot of shorts, with both Curly as the Third Stooge and shorts with Shemp as the Third Stooge and I was really laughing and laughing all throughout them! I just do not know where I would be without the Three Stooges! Because I would probably never know where I would have gotten a lot of those gags from if I had not seen them!

I really hope that you are prepared to laugh and laugh when you watch this Three Stooges shorts, because you are really going to be laughing and laughing!
