Another Very Funny Three Stooges Short This Is!
11 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had no idea that this Three Stooges short even existed until I bought the Three Stooges Collection Volume Four, and after I watched a lot of the other ones like They Stooge To Conga, I watched this one, and another very funny Three Stooges short this is! I was laughing myself silly while watching this short! And like with a lot of other Three Stooges, I was in pain from laughing, this short is not one of their funniest, but it is still really hysterical and laugh-filled! This is actually in my opinion one of their best of the year 1944, I am not knocking some of the others of 1944, but this is one of their best in my opinion!

You are really going to love this Three Stooges short when you watch this, like a lot of Three Stooges shorts, you are going to be just laughing and laughing away when you see Moe, Larry, and Curly!
