Storyline

The stooges are movers for an express company and on a rainy night are sent to move some junk, including a suit of armor, from a spooky old house. The armor is haunted by the ghost of Sir Tom, who has no intention of leaving. The ghost foils the stooges attempts to take the armor, and is about to skewer them with a sword when it's revealed that the stooges were only telling a bedtime story to their "sons" (also played by the stooges.)

Classic Stoogerama
7 May 2012 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

This is one of the last episodes that included Shemp. Perhaps because they were getting older, or were trying to save on production costs, some of the later episodes included stock footage from earlier episodes. When you consider what the Stooges were able to accomplish with almost nothing, one can only wonder what their legacy could have been if they had some good production budgets.

This episode features the Stooges moving a bunch of relics out of a haunted castle. The shenanigans, and pranks are all here, and watching them never gets old. Every time Moe pops Shemp in the face, he deadpans towards the camera, and he always looks so happy to be there. That is really the magic of the Stooges. They always looked like they were having a wonderful time being Stooges.

Even though I have seen this episode at least fifty times since back when I was a kid, I watched it this morning, and I laughed. I knew the gags, and I could see the little fishing line pulling up the visor on the talking armor, but it was still funny. Like sharing happy moments with good friends.
