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

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 »
Since the boys are in uniform there should have been a too many men on the field penalty called. See more »

This Three Stooges short film is another of my all time favorites with Curly, this is short is completely funny!
My favorite scene was the ending where Curly ran out of the stadium with the football and all of the other players where chasing him! And then Larry was pulling an ice cream bin with Moe sitting on it throwing ice cream at the players!
Until I recently saw this one again, I had no idea what it was about, the only thing I remembered about it was the ending with the Three Stooges being chased down the streets of town by the football players!
The Three Stooges really get into a lot of trouble and mishaps, but what do you expect? You expect the Three Stooges to get into a lot of trouble and mishaps, that is just plain typical Three Stooges!
This is very funny, you really gotta see it!
