One of my favorite Curly shorts!, 10 June 2001
Author: Dan Mudd from USA

In A Ducking They Did Go (1939), The Three Stooges (Moe, Larry, Curly) try to steal watermelons (they play some football too) and they run into a businessman with a proposition. Sell hunting memberships for a duck club and make money! The stooges, always down on money, take the job...but it ends up being a scam! To make matter worse, the stooges sold all of the memberships to the cops AND the mayor! Another problem, there are no ducks at this abandoned club! The stooges, always on the ball, devise a plan to use decoys and trick the police.

All in all, it's a very funny stooges short with Curly outputting a fantastic performance. Moe is a good hitter in the short and Larry is very stupid in funny ways! There is nothing better than a good stooges short!
