The stooges are greeting card salesmen who are mistakenly inducted into the army after escaping from the jealous husband of one of their customers. In bootcamp their sergeant turns out to be the same man, whom they constantly vex and bewilder. When the boys are sent to the front lines and the sergeant is captured they must rescue him, which they do after doping themselves with laughing gas. At the end they get shot off into the sunset on a cannon shell. Written by

I've seen each of the nearly two hundred Three Stooges' shorts at least a dozen times each, and this has always been my favorite. There are just so many things that happen in this short--Jules White could have made a two hour feature out of all the different scenes and situations! But I think the funniest scene of all is the ending which takes place during WWI. The Germans at the headquarters all speak pig latin, which is hilarious in itself, but it's just too funny when Moe is screaming with laughter because of the laughing gas, and then giggles, "Our own troops are shooting at us!" To which Larry replies, while busting a gut, "We'll be killed!" This is by far my favorite Stooge short.
