Storyline

The stooges are janitors working in the offices of Doctors Harts, Burns and Belcher. Some crooks arrive seeking medical attention after their boss has been wounded in a shoot out with the cops. Mistaken for doctors, the boys are forced to operate on the wounded crook, but instead they accidentally dump him out the window into a passing police car. The rest of the gang chases them into a store room filled with dummies where the cops finally catch the bad guys. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

This short can basically be summed up in two halves: The first half, which is very funny & the 2nd half (at the point where the stooges decide to run from the cops & Curly gets covered in some kind of white goop) which isn't very funny at all. Dudley Dickerson, who plays a frightened janitor in this short, is always good for a few guffaws with his double takes & facial reactions whenever he's scared by something.

I rate this a 4.5/10
