Trivia

This is one of 4 Three Stooges shorts that ended up falling into the public domain, the other 3 being Brideless Groom (1947), Sing a Song of Six Pants (1947), and Disorder in the Court (1936). Because of that, these four shorts frequently appear on very cheaply processed video and DVD compilations. See more »

Goofs

After the table gets knocked over, a finger can briefly be seen under the leg of the table, poking at the cat to get it to leave the shot. See more »

Quotes

Moe: Y-you talked us into it.

Great Three Stooges Shemp short!
19 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. Vernon Dent, George J. Lewis,and Frank Lackteen all performed well. There and many funny scenes here and The Three Stooges are hilarious! There is another short very similar like this one called Rumpus in the Harem. My favorite of the two is Malice in the Palace but I recommend to see both of these Three Stooges shorts!
