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:
Revealing mistakes: 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 »

Curly:On top of the burro, so they'll be nice and fresh in the sun.
Moe:Yeah, we'll... get goin' before we starve here. C'mon.
Curly:Oh, fresh henfruit. Handle with care.

Good Three Stooges short!, 28 September 2004
Author: Movie Nuttball from U.S.A.

The Three Stooges has always been some of the many actors that I have loved. I love just about every one of the shorts that they have made. I love all six of the Stooges (Curly, Shemp, Moe, Larry, Joe, and Curly Joe)! All of the shorts are hilarious and also star many other great actors and actresses which a lot of them was in many of the shorts! In My opinion The Three Stooges is some of the greatest actors ever and is the all time funniest comedy team!

This is a very funny Three Stooges western short. All of the performances are very good and Curly is hilarious! Dick Curtis performs well as the villain and Lynton Brent does as well. Also there are brief but good performances by Vernon Dent, Jean Carmen, Lola Jensen, Suzanne Kaaren. I recommend this Three Stooges short!
