Three of the Best Plumbers that Ever Plumbed a Plumb, 12 May 2003
Author: Brian Washington (Sargebri@att.net) from Los Angeles, California

This is one of the best Stooge comedies. This features the Stooges in one of their favorite situations, posing as repairmen that don't know a thing about what they are supposed to be repairing. Probably the best scene in this short is when Curly traps himself in a cage of pipes and uses a hand drill to try to escape and in the process falls through the floor and lands right on top of Moe. This is the Stooges at their moronic best.
