Very good Three Stooges short!, 28 October 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!

In My opinion this is a very funny short. Appearing in this short subject are Bud Jamison, Dudley Dickerson, Joyce Gardner, Julie Gibson, and Clarence Straight. The baby scenes with The Stooges are extremely funny and the cop scenes are cool. In My opinion those scenes are before their time! I recommend this Three Stooges short!
