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

My favorite Three Stooges short of all-time. I loved this short since I first saw it, and I never get tired of it.
First, the opening scene the Stooges having no-luck selling greeting cards to passerbys in the street is great. Especially when one man blows cigar smoke in Curly's face as a sign to leave him alone, and Curly replies, "Oh, a SNOB, eh?" One woman even punches Curly in the face, and he replies, "Oh, a SNOBESS, eh?!!?"
The next scene with the Stooges accidentally bumping into a man (played by Richard Fiske), and ending up getting into a fight with him is hilarious, ending with the Stooges knocking the man deep into a shut-in, and locking him in!
Then the Stooges try to help a lady who thinks her husband doesn't love her anymore by flirting with her to make her husband jealous. But her husband turns out to be the same man who the Stooges knocking into the shut-in! He quickly whips out a gun and runs after the boys, and after a hilarious wild chase, the boys end up dodging him, and wind up hiding in a line for Army recruits. In no time, they wind up as Army soldiers.
The next scene with the Stooges marching with the other soldiers is excellent, and features Curly at his best. He's especially funny when he's making those funny faces when the sergeant is going through the manual of arms.
And finally, the ending scene, which is the best part. The boys get blown with laughing gas, and laugh hysterically all the way as they are captured by the enemy, attacked by the general, and knock out all of the enemy soldier, all ending with the Stooges being blown by a cannon into God-knows-where in the sky! I love that part, and I think it's the funniest and most outrageous Three Stooges ending ever.
Those are just SOME of the many reasons why this is my favorite Three Stooges short. But this short is a must for any Three Stooges fan.
