The reel where Shemp practices his dentistry was actually filmed for Merry Mavericks
(1951) but was too long for inclusion as it ran, and too funny to edit or throw out. Merry Mavericks
(1951) had come in ahead of time and somewhat under budget, so producer Hugh McCollum
persuaded Columbia to allow him two days extra to film additional material to round it out, and used the dental school sequence to set up this short. See more

The tuition is $5 each, or three for $25.
A rare bargain, we'll take the 25.
