Somebody at Columbia Pictures must have remembered Spencer Tracy admonishing Katharine Hepburn when she tried to adopt a war orphan in Woman Of The Year. Because in this Three Stooges short All The World's A Stooge the main part of the story involves the Stooges being adopted as war orphans.
Lelah Tyler playing a Spring Byrington type society matron thinks it would be just perfectly grand to adopt a war orphan because it's just the latest fad. That's all her put upon husband Emory Parnell needs and he decides to teach her a lesson. So he hires three very recently out of work window washers who've been practicing dentistry without a license and on him to play war orphans.
Just the sight gags of Moe and Curly in Little Lord Fauntleroy suits and Larry in drag is enough. But the three of them manage to create enough mayhem in the Parnell/Tyler household on the screen that they might have discouraged many a family from actually adopting an orphan kid. It all ends at a party where as you know inevitably pastries are served and we all know where they wind up.
Moe, Larry, and Curly at their best.
