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>

Fun Stooges Short
30 July 2011 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

No Census, No Feeling (1940)

*** (out of 4)

Funny short has the Three Stooges wrecking a second hand store so they have to run from a cop and end up ducking into a line for census people. Now with a new job the boys head out to gather some census and it doesn't take long for them to get in trouble when they try to enter a high society bridge game and then a football game. This Columbia short finds Moe, Larry and Curly in fine form as we get one good laugh after another. The opening sequence with the boys crashing down was certainly a good way to introduce them and things just pick up from here. I think the best moments happen inside the bridge game where Curly accidentally puts alum in some punch and soon everyone is going around with puckered up lips. Another great sequence as Curly flirting with an attractive maid and this here gets plenty of nice laughs. The football game sequence isn't classic Stooges but this too manages to get some laughs and especially one scene where Curly tries to get some answers from a quarterback who is really calling out plays. At just under 20-minutes this short goes by without any weak spots so fans of the Stooges should enjoy it and it's also good enough to show someone unfamiliar with the boys just to show them what the legends were made of.
