Another recycled short
10 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's hard to rate this short on its own terms because about half of it consists of footage from another short (as was common practice with the later Stooge shorts) -- namely "I'm A Monkey's Uncle" (1948). When this happens it's usually called a "remake", but this is more of a "recycle".

The first half of the short consists of new footage, which is actually quite good in its own right. The rest, other than an epilogue with more new footage, is just an edit of "Uncle". The old stuff worked better in its original context. Framed by this particular new stuff, it ends up being kind of dumb.

Worth seeing for the new stuff, or if you just don't want to miss anything Stooge-related.
