Storyline

Told in flash back, the stooges tell their son how he came to have three fathers. The stooges, owners of a pawn shop, owed money to the gashouse protection society, a bunch of loan sharks. To complicate matters, a lady leaves a baby in the shop as part of a plan to sell a phony diamond and the stooges wind up caring for the kid. The stooges manage to defeat the crooks and when they finish telling the story, the kid goes off to find his real mother. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Good Three Stooges short!
28 October 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

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!

This is a good Three Stooges short. Tiny Braur plays a good part and he and the beautiful Beverly Warren make a good couple. She also performs very good! Also appearing in this one is Joe Palma. The Stooges are all good and the baby scenes are good. This one is similar like the other Three Stooges short with Curly called Sock-A-Bye Baby which is just as good. I recommend both of them to Three Stooges fans!
