The stooges run a local drug store and are about to have their lease taken away by Amos Flint, the mean old man who owns the place. When Flint kicks his wife out for being old, the stooges try to help her by inventing a formula that makes old people young. Their concoction turns the wife into a beautiful young woman, and Flint offers the boys their store for free if they'll transform him as well. They agree, but he turns into a five-year-old after he swallows the serum, and the boys leave on the run. Written by

When Emil Sitka, as the nasty landlord Amos Flint, is yelling at the Stooges, he flubs a line. The line is supposed to be, "You haven't heard the last of me yet!". Sitka says, "You haven't heard of me..." then continues immediately "...the last of me yet!". See more »

What do you call this cake?

Tastes more like Marshmallow Gumbo.

This is probably the calmest, most easy-going of all the Stooge shorts. It is not consistently hilarious, but there are a handful of good laughs, and somehow this is one of the easiest and most entertaining Stooge shorts to watch. Their human kindness is shown when they let an old lady who has been thrown out of her husband's house stay in a spare room in their store. The lady's old age caused her husband to throw her out and the Stooges most kindly go to work on a vitamin to make old people young. In what is one of their few successful projects, the Stooges turn the old lady into a young, gorgeous women (the goddess Christine McIntyre) and then they get revenge on her husband. This short is light-hearted fun, and the Stooges' reaction to McIntyre as she tears off the bottom of her skirt is hilarious. And Shemp's physical reaction when he gets a spoonful of jumping beans amazes me that a 53 year old man could be so physically active. Wow!
