Craziness ensues as the Boys play Veterinarians!, 6 April 2006
Author: stalzz64 from United States

Lotsa Nyuk Nuyks in this one. I agree it's one of their best short subjects. They were best in the 'old days' of the 1930's and early 1940's. It got sort of lame after the original Curly retired, then died. They're all-time Great Comedians, especially if you love the silly crazy slapstick variety of comedy. Shemp was good, but not as good as Curly. It was cool that Moe employed members of his family to be Stooges- The original Curly (Jerome Horwitz 'Howard') and Shemp (Samuel Horwitz 'Howard')

They did so many short films together and a few feature-length films as well as TV cartoons, which you can now find on home video.
