The stooges make a whole batch of homemade beer, but get tossed in jail when Curly sells some to a policeman. Their minor indiscretion turns into a forty year sentence when a barrel of beer Curly has hidden under his coat explodes while the boys are being photographed. In prison, the stooges get into more trouble with the warden and wind on the rockpile when they try to escape. Finally released as old men with long gray beards, the first thing Curly wants is a bottle of beer. Written by

As other reviewers have already pointed out, the insertion of archival footage from previous mid-40s Curly shorts is what proves to be the downfall of this particular episode--which is something of a shame, since I found a lot of the new scenes to be quite hilarious; particularly the opening scenes with the stooges making their homemade brew (I'm sorry Moe, the crock skidded).
Of course, the stock footage was probably a combination of events, stemming from Curly's obviously declining health & the old thrift master Jules White showing an early affinity for saving a few dollars (something that came into greater prominence in the '50s).
