One of the greatest Three Stooges shorts!, 28 July 2004
Author: Movie Nuttball from U.S.A.

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. The doctor scenes are very funny. Symona Boniface acted very good. Mary Ainslee and John Tyrrell were very good! All of the Samoa scenes were extremely funny especially the guard who guarded the plant. The King, The King's Sister, and Kingfisher are three hilarious characters in My opinion! This is a great one and strongly recommend it!
