Storyline

Set in the stone age, the stooges are cavemen who must have various misadventures hunting, gathering, and otherwise coping with prehistoric life. When some other cavemen threaten to take their women ("Aggie", "Maggie", and "Baggy"), the boys fight them off with a catapulting tree branch that shoots rocks and eggs.

The silly stone age romeos!
19 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

I'M A MONKEY'S UNCLE is one of the Three Stooges' funniest shorts. I'm a fan of Shemp, and this is one of his greats. The funniest part is when Dee Green tackles Shemp so he'll fall in love with her.

This is a great stooge short. Watch for it on AMC or on Columbia Home Video.

**** out of 4 stars!
