The stooges run a pet hospital and get an important patient, Garcon, a rich ladies poodle. When dognappers posing as reporters steal the poodle, the boys are in a tough spot. First they try to fool their client by disguising a mutt as the poodle. When that doesn't work, they use the mutt as a bloodhound to track down the crooks. When they discover the bad guys hideout, Curly defeats them in a fight and they find Garcon, only to discover that "he" has had a litter of puppies. Written by

Hey, what a minute. I'm stuck.

Calling All Curs (1939) stars Moe, Larry and Curly as veterinarians who must save a dog (Garcon) from it's kidnappers.
Curly is at his best in this one. He does a very very funny bit with dog bones biting his nose. How can you not like that?
It's a solid short, also a clip of this was in Lethal Weapon! Mel Gibson is a HUGE stooges fan. He was responsible for the ABC made-for-television movie about The Three Stooges' rise and somewhat screw job by Columbia.
