Storyline

Set in a western town, the stooges are working as waiters in a saloon with the three girls they hope to marry. The proprietor of the saloon is a crook who, with his partner, has buried $40,000 of stolen money. The boys go prospecting in hopes of raising enough money to pay off the debts of their fiancée father, who owes money to their boss. They dig up the stolen money, which the crooks recognize as their loot and abscond with. A wild chase ensues, ending with the bad guy's car crashing into the Sheriff's office.

Trivia

This short was untitled during filming. Curly Howard's ad lib "Yes we have no bonanzas", parodying the children's song "Yes We Have No Bananas", was ultimately used as the title. See more »

Goofs

At one point Moe does the eyes-poke on Curly, and the choreography is performed very poorly so the phoniness is blatantly apparent. See more »

Yes, This Short Is Really Funny!
26 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Three Stooges short film is another one of the very first ones in my life that I had ever seen, and it is also a one that I really remember a lot. And I also really think that it is a very funny one! Yes, this short is really funny and riot filled! I remember that I was really laughing and laughing when I saw this short, because I thought that it was a very funny short that had a lot of laughs in it, I am not talking laughs, I mean big laughs! This is one Three Stooges short film that really gives us what it promises us, and lot of laughs! And when I say laughs, I mean laughs! Prepare to laugh and laugh like crazy when you watch this short!

Get ready to see the Three Stooges in top form in a very funny Three Stooges short from the end of the 1930's! This is one short borough to you by Moe, Larry, and Curly that is really going to cause you to explode with laughter! In fact, you are going to wish that you had seen this short a long time ago, you are going to probably watch this short over and over again!

10/10
