Storyline

The stooges get jobs as census takers and wind up in a fancy mansion looking for people to survey. Moe and Larry are recruited to join a bridge game, while Curly adds Alum to the lemonade. The resulting concoction is consumed by everyone, resulting in puckered lips and shrunken clothes. The boys next try to take the census at a football stadium. They disguise themselves as players and wind up in the middle of the game. Curly runs off with the ball and all the other players in pursuit. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Trivia

Just before the boys go to the football game, they hear a commotion in the distance. Curly Howard says, "Maybe it's the Fourth of July!" Moe Howard replies, "The Fourth of July in October?" Curly answers, "You never can tell. Look what they did to Thanksgiving." This reference is lost on most people today, but before 1939 Thanksgiving was not a fixed date; it relied on a Presidential Thanksgiving Proclamation each year. President Abraham Lincoln began the national holiday in 1863 and most people were used to Thanksgiving being the last Thursday of November. In 1939 (the year before this short was released), President Franklin D. Roosevelt changed the date of the national holiday, much to the disagreement of many states' governors and their citizens. This change added an extra week of holiday shopping, which pleased business leaders. The move was quite controversial and it wasn't until the end of 1941 that Congress passed a law to settle the dispute and establish the "fourth Thursday" of November as Thanksgiving Day. See more »

Good Three Stooges short! A classic!
22 July 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

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 short. Symona Boniface, Vernon Dent, and John Tyrrell acted very good. The store destruction scenes, the inside the house scenes like the card game and Curly being the chef and Larry on the couch, and the football scenes were very very funny. This is a great one Three Stooges short!
