Has some nice moments, 23 January 2004
Author: rbverhoef ( from The Hague, Netherlands

The Three Stooges are tree sturgeons and they have to take care of a tree that belongs to a sick and grumpy old man. Larry, Curly and Moe think the tree needs a girlfriend, another tree, and the man promises to give each of them 10.000 dollars if they bring a tree. The problem is that the tree only grows on an island where the natives live in houses made of bamboo and where they drink milk from coconuts, as it says in this short.

This short as a complete thing is not very good, but the separate parts both have their moments. Especially the part on the island with a gag involving a alligator is terrific. This is not their finest short, not even close actually, but as always it is entertaining enough.
