Storyline

Adolf Hitler, Benito and Suki Yaki are placed in a series of Three-Stooges routines, with the premise that the Board of Directors of Hell has put the Devil on notice they intend to replace him with Adolf Hitler unless he can get Hitler to commit a good deed. The devil has his work cut out for him, and doesn't appear likely to escape being replaced by the German leader. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Poking Fun at the Evil Leaders of World War II
4 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

I wish that people who write reviews for the movies listed on IMDb would keep in mind the era in which they were made and the mood of the audiences for which they were intended. This is a comedy, folks. Who were the big comedians of the time? The Three Stooges; Abbott and Costello; Laurel and Hardy; Bob Hope. Slapstick; improbable situations; pratfalls; weird accents; implausible plots; all of these staples of comedy were used to good effect in this short amusing movie. The fact that it was produced by the great Hal Roach should give anyone with movie viewing experience an inkling that the makers wanted to give their audiences a few laughs. In the second year of WWII, there was very little escapism for the people of America. The leaders of Germany, Italy and Japan must have seemed Hell-spawned when the average citizen read about their daily antics in the newspapers of the day. Making them the subjects of comedy actions worthy of the Three Stooges was just another way to point out their stupidity in an insane world. After all, most good comedy is rooted in the truth, and when you watch this delightful little piece of fluff, put your mind in neutral and prepare to be entertained. Hal Roach would not have had it any other way.
