Storyline

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 Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Dog Gone Funny! One Of Their Funniest Of 1939!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
23 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

About two years back, I got the Three Stooges Collection Volume 2 for my birthday and so I decided to watch this one when I got to it on the second disc, and of course me being a really gargantuan fan of the Three Stooges, I thought that this Three Stooges short was a very funny one. This Three Stooges short is very dog gone funny, this is one of their funniest shorts of the year 1939! I recall that I was totally laughing my head off like crazy when I saw this Three Stooges short, I was laughing at almost every single second of its length, this short is not one of their funniest, but it is one of their funniest shorts of the end of the 1930's, you should really see this hysterical short if you are really a huge fan of the very hysterical and outrageous Three Stooges!

Maybe I am going a little to far with this, but if you are really a huge fan of the Three Stooges and and to see one of their funniest short films of the late 1930's, then this is a short film with the Three Stooges that will really get on a roll with laughter, this short film will kill you, not literally, but you will be laughing very hard! I have already said that though not their best, it is very hysterical and riot filled that will cause you to become paralyzed with laughter!

10/10
