Moe is on trial for assaulting Curly and Larry with an ax. Moe relates how Curly and Larry took him on a hunting trip for his nerves. Out in the woods they confronted a bear which Curly and Larry stunned, and thinking it was dead, threw it in the back of their car, where it came awake, tossed Moe out and drove the car into a tree. The judge finds Moe not guilty and Moe promptly goes after Larry and Curly again with the ax. Written by

After the attacks and Larry jumps back in through the window; he closes it behind himself, and it stays closed in scenes viewed from the outside. But, all scenes from inside show the window open. See more »
[Curly accidentally spills spaghetti on him]
You're a nitwit, that's what you are! What's the matter with you?
Hey Moe, there's a b-b-b-b-bear in the window.
You're wacky. What do you mean a bear in the window? There's no bear around here.
[Moe goes to the window and looks around; the bear growls and smacks him in the head]
Oh! Oh! Oh! You're right. There is a bear around here.

IDIOTS DELUXE (1945) is the last good Three Stooges short directed by Jules White before falling down into mediocrity. Considering the poor quality of all of White Stooges shorts after this one the credit for this one belongs to writer Elwood Ullman whose script is excellent. With no "poke in the eyes" jokes the two-reeler is effectively structured in flashback and features a lot of inspired gags and jokes. For once, Jules White does not milk the screenplay with protracted and unfunny gags. The version I have seen so far, in Argentina, is in Spanish; however, not even the poor dubbing can undermine the film qualities.
