A Classic Among Three Stooges Shorts!, 5 November 2010
Author: Humphrey Fish from United States

Is this Stooge short something extremely hysterical to laugh at? Well let me sum that all up in just one simple sentence. This is a classic among Three Stooges shorts! I mean that this is yet another one of the funniest Three Stooges shorts that I have ever seen in my whole entire life, and not to mention that it is also one of my all time favorite Three Stooges short films! So all in all, this is another extremely hysterical and noteworthy installment for The Three Stooges! Well done Moe, Larry, and Curly, you all did an extremely fabulous job with this extremely hilarious short!

I honestly don't know where I would be if I had never ever seen the Three Stooges. It is to dreadful to even think about. Because in my point of view, they are among some of the funniest people that I have honestly ever seen!

Well here is a little something that I would like to say, especially to all fans of The Three Stooges! Sock-A-Bye Baby is one of the funniest Three Stooges shorts ever made! It is as good as you'll get from the Three Stooges! So watch this short and enjoy it, because trust me, you really will enjoy it! Why? Because it is totally and completely hysterical from start to finish!
