Great Shemp short!, 19 October 2004
Author: Movie Nuttball from U.S.A.

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!

I think Punchy Cowpunchers is one of the best Three Stooges westerns with Shemp. This one has an all-star cast which includes Jock Mahoney, Christine McIntyre, Kenneth MacDonald, Dick Wessel, Vernon Dent, Emil Sitka, Heinie Conklin, and Joe Palma! All of the actors perform well and each all has a bit of screen time. There some really funny things here and I love it when the Stooges bartenders. If you are a Three Stooges fan and western fan then I strongly recommend that you watch Punchy Cowpunchers today!
