Cookoo Cavaliers!, 13 June 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!

Cookoo Cavaliers is a funny one! The fish sale scenes are good. In the beauty salon scenes is where all of the big time hilarious stuff happens! Especially all of the scenes when the Stooges are working on Dorothy Appleby! Lynton Brent is in the short and his accent is sounds realistic! I recommend this Three Stooges short, Cookoo Cavaliers!
