Larry: Hey, how do you spell "garage"? With a G or a J?
Shemp: With a "G", you idiot. G-A-R-A-J.
Larry: Oh!
Moe: Fine speller you turned out to be. "G-A-R-A-J". Don't you know there's an "E" on the end of it?
Shemp: Hmm. You just made that up.

Although Somewhat Recycled, It Is Still Hysterical!
22 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved Hold That Lion, and although this short, Booty And The Beast is somewhat recycled from the former, it is still a hysterical short in its own right! I mean that despite the fact that this short borrows stock footage from Hold That Lion, I still thought that it was very funny! All in all, I found this to be very hysterical and filled with laughs, in both the old footage, as well as in the new footage! I can say that the Three Stooges have done it once again by perfecting another one of their hysterical short films!

I have seen a large amount of Stooge shorts in my life, and I have loved a lot of them, not all of them. There is only one person I know of who loves all of them, that is Movie Nutball, he seems to like everything, no matter how bad it possible is. And now that I own this on DVD, I can watch this whenever I want.

Well if you are a fan of the Three Stooge and you have not seen this short, then you probably should see it. Because you are probably going to be laughing at it a lot! Well all in all, if you loved Hold That Lion, then you will love this, because it really is something hysterical! So watch this whenever you can, because it is hysterical, don't miss out on all of the fun!
