The stooges steal some of the academics' clothes and wind up at "Mildew", a women's college where the three professors are expected. Mistaken as the real thing, the boys take their place on the faculty. When the real professors show up, the stooges try to convince a rich woman, the schools benefactor, that an athletics programs is more important. Their athletics demonstration comes to an explosive end when the real professors slip them a nitroglycerin basketball. Written by

This short contains the classic Stooges rendition of "Swinging the Alphabet", originally composed by Septimus Winner, under the title "The Spelling Bee". Charley Chase's family maid taught it to his children, and Charley brought it to the attention of the Stooges. See more »

Acme Service Station Owner:
I'm going across the street, men, for a sandwich. Now listen, when the customers come in, give 'em service. Now, this is your first day on the job, so show me that you've got what it takes. Don't be afraid to push those sponges around. Use a little elbow grease!

I'm still swinging to the alphabet with this hilarious episode of the Three Stooges. Basically Moe, Larry, and Curly screw up their job cleaning and filling up cars with gas. When they run away, the get into a very wet situation causing them to steal professor gowns to stay dry. But when the dean of students over at Mildew Academy thinks that they are the three brilliant professors that they've been looking for, the boys take the job without asking. They have fun with the academy instead of teaching knowledge. This is one of the best stooge shorts, and I would highly recommend it.
