The Boys are at it again: You will Laugh !!!, 11 January 2003
Author: davis White from us

This entry was done during the Stooge/Curley prime, 1940. Due to stealing Watermelons, the cops are after the boys so they disguise themselves as plumbers, and completely destroy a mansion in the process. Not the best Stooge short but certainly funny and worthy of repeated viewing. Funny, wild, and Dudley Dickerson in the kitchen is "Sure gone Crazy" Great Stuff.

Bottom Line: One of the Top 10 Stooge shorts. 8 out of 10
