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>

classic stooges....
15 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

If "Heavenly Daze" isn't my favorite short, it's damn close to the top. The ever-underrated Shemp Howard shines in this film. I always bust a gut on the scenes in the stooges "new" digs when Shempie is scaring Moe & Larry's butler to death (played hysterically by Sam McDaniel who nearly steals every scene himself). A definite stooge classic I recommend to anyone with a funny-bone.

10/10
