Pretty good...but not one of the best., 2 May 2001
Author: aspiring-actor from Pennsylvania

I am a big fan of the Three Stooges and I must say that this short is not one of their best ones. The plot of the short is somewhat dumb but there is still some funny jokes to it. I think that if teenagers today watch this, they would probably go hysterical with laughter when Moe says that the tree needs a girlfriend and Curly says, "Or maybe a boyfriend!"
