Laughs And Laughs And Laughs!, 13 August 2010
Author: Humphrey Fish from United States

I've got to tell you about another Three Stooges short that I have see, Punchy Cowpunchers. In my opinion, this short is hysterical from beginning to end, from the very beginning of this short to the very end of this short, it is totally and completely hysterical! This is another one of the best Stooge shorts with Shemp Howard in my opinion, and not only that, but it has also become one of my favorite shorts with Shemp! Well it only seems natural that I would love Shemp, because he is my personal favorite Third Stooge, I like Curly a lot, but I like Shemp the best. Getting back to my review, this short has got laughs and laughs and laughs and laughs galore, when you watch this short, you probably won't be able to stop laughing!

What I really love about Shemp is that he is his own character, instead of trying to be like Curly, he is his own character. This may seem a little strange, but a lot of my favorite Stooge shorts have Shemp as the Third Stooge, it may sound really strange, but it is true. So anyway, this is another one of Shemp's best shorts, all three of the Stooges are in top form for this short!

Watch this short, because you are going to love it! You are especially going to love this if you are a huge fan of the Three Stooges, because this is honestly one of the best shorts with Shemp.
