Fun with Food And How to Outsmart Homicidal Individuals...
While this Three Stooges short may feature the Stooges at a time they weren't quite at the level they once were, there's nevertheless one thing this short remains and that's funny. Yes the routine with Larry and the cat and the dog does steal the spotlight and does provide this episode's funniest moments (admittedly a portion of this routine may have been stolen from Abbott and Costello but even if that's the case, the Stooges still put their own distinctive, zany stamp on the subject matter that's for rootin' tootin' certain) but there's also fun to be found later when the Stooges, all disguised as Santa Claus, must get past a huge, hulking bodyguard wielding a great big sword! How they do this proves more surprising than I and I'd assume most other folks would expect and there's even more hilarious, unpredictable Stooges hijinks in this one than that.
