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.)

Great one!
11 March 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This is on of the spookiest and funniest Three Stooges shorts! It begins rather well with thunders storms and the howling wind! When the Stooges discover that the armor talks and they have a conversation about who he is its gets really good after that! I think I was funny when the Stooges opened that chest and the skeleton came out and he says that he's Red and Shemp says Red Skeleton! I thought that was very funny! There is a lot of other type of spooky stuff in this one and also another funny part in it is when Larry talks to the suit of armor he say to "well maybe he doesn't talk English" and then he say things in other languages and the suit of armor replies to it and Larry's hat spins around and he is very frightened! I thought it was funny! Like some other spooky type Three Stooges shorts this is a great Three Stooges short to watch over again around Halloween time!
