Out Of All Of The Underrated Stooge Shorts, This Is One Of Them!
4 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had heard about how underrated this short was, and so I decided to just see it for myself then decide. Out of all of the underrated Three Stooges short films that I have seen, this is probably one of the most underrated! This is actually one of the best Stooge shorts of the 1950's, and therefore, it is one of their best shorts of their later years! I honestly thought that I was going to die from laughing, I was paralyzed with laughter while I was watching this! This is probably one Stooge short that I am never going to forget as long as I am alive, because I thought that this was so hysterical!

And now that I own it as part of the Three Stooges Collection, Volume Six, I can watch this whenever I am in the mood to see a Three Stooges short film that I thought was hysterical! I give this short a perfect rating of ten stars out of ten for being a Three Stooges short without flaws! Plus the fact that it has got Shemp Howard in it, and Shemp Howard is my personal favorite Third Stooge, nothing more, nothing less! Well all in all, this is one of the best Stooge shorts of their later years.

If you are a fan of the Three Stooges and have not seen this short yet, then you probably should. In my point of view, this is probably one of the most underrated Three Stooges short films that there has ever been! Well enjoy this and you watch it, because this is indeed really hysterical!

10/10
