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

The "litter of three" joke was more or less an "in-joke" dealing with the fact that Larry Fine was the only one of The Three Stooges who was not a "Howard" (the other two being Moe Howard and Curly Howard, both of whose real last name was Horowitz). Curly says he was one of the ones "kept" (being a Howard), while Larry says he was the one "they threw away" (not being a Howard). See more »
Since the boys are in uniform there should have been a too many men on the field penalty called. See more »
[Not realizing he is getting replies from Larry]
Pardon me sir, but I'm taking census, where were you born?
Lake Winnip-how many in the family?
I was one of a litter of three.
Now don't tell me you're the one they kept!
Nah, I was the one they threw away!

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!
