Another Very Underrated Stooge Short.
10 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Can Larry Fine be hysterical when it comes to being in Stooge shorts? Well he certainly can! Larry is hysterical in just about every single Stooge short that I have seen him in, including He Cooked His Goose! In my point of view, He Cooked His Goose is probably one of the most underrated Three Stooges short films that I have ever seen in my whole entire life, I don't know why a lot of people don't like it. For the Stooges being separate characters in this short, they do an extremely great job at it! I mean that this is one of the most unique and original ideas of any Stooge short that I have watched.

This is probably one of the funniest Stooge short films of the year 1952, and overall, it is one of the funniest Three Stooges short films ever made, and not only that, but it is also one of the greatest Stooge shorts that I have ever seen in my whole entire life! So bravo to The Three Stooges for perfecting another one of their hysterical short films, because indeed, this is hysterical! So great work, Moe, Larry, and Shemp, especially Larry, because you made another short that I really thought was hysterical!

Well you probably are going to love this when you watch it, because it is so hysterical and outrageous! Don't believe me, just watch this yourself, or even better than that, take my word for it.

10/10
