One of their best., 16 April 2012
Author: BlackJack_B (bluethunder35@hotmail.com) from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

This short was reportedly Curly Howard's favourite piece of work with The Three Stooges and it shows him in his full glory.

The boys begin the short defending themselves in court over stealing chickens and somehow get their case dismissed despite incriminating evidence that Curly was in a chicken shack. The boys then resume their criminal activities by trying to steal fish from a pet store. The cop that was in the courthouse with them earlier sees them and goes after The Three Stooges. After an entertaining chase, the boys escape in a plumbing van. When they stop, they so happen to reach a house in need of plumbing...and so, The Three Stooges decide to use their expertise to fix the leak.

Classic Stooge antics are in the offering as the three of them pretty much lay havoc to the abode. I can say this, Moe continues his schtick of thinking he's smart but in reality being just as much of an imbecile as his two buddies. A propos for many people in 2012.

This is one of the their 10 best and a must-watch.
