Storyline

Shemp dies but cannot get into heaven until he reforms Moe and Larry. He returns to earth as an invisible spirit and sets out to prevent the other two stooges from selling a phony invention (a fountain pen that writes under whip cream) to a rich couple. Shemp sabotages Moe and Larry's sales pitch, but it looks he's headed for the fires below anyway. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Good one!
29 June 2005 | 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!

One of My favorite Stooges shorts with Shemp is none other than Heavenly Daze! All appearing in this short are Vernon Dent, Sam McDaniel, Symona Boniface, Judy Malcolm, Marti Shelton, and Victor Travers. There are so many funny parts here. This is a very hilarious short. There is another similar Three Stooges short like this one called Bedlam in Paradise and I recommend both!
