Another funny misadventure for The Three Stooges!, 27 January 2001
Author: wishkah7 from Brooklyn, NY. (Where I'm from originally.)

Scrambled Brains is another one of my favorite Stooge episodes! It starts off as Moe and Larry come to pick up Shemp whom was staying at a hospital and plays the role of a bedlam suffering from hallucinations. Moe and Larry bring him home thinking they could cure him themselves. And along the way discover Shemp is engaged to an ugly nurse he meet at the hospital named Nora. To top it all off, Shemp has a hallucination that the nurse is beautiful!

The funniest scene in this whole episode was when our heroes encounter Nora's domineering father (played by stooge-regular Vernon Dent) in a phone booth! That whole scene just keeps me laughing for a long time!

Shemp was a very photogenic, bubbly, and I have always adored his charisma as a comedian! And I have always loved that about him! He had a wonderfully hilarious sense of humor, too! But sadly, Shemp is the most underrated Stooge. That's because Curly (who I like second best) was always more popular.

So, please stooge fans RUSH to see Scrambled Brains! I have this episode on tape, reserve your copy today! Long live Shemp Howard!!!! :)
