Storyline

The stooges are government agent entrusted with protecting professor Sneed, who has invented a super rocket fuel. Larry is mistaken for the professor by foreign agents who kidnap the trio and take them to the country of Anemia where they are ordered to produce the rocket fuel or be executed. The boys come up with a concoction they try to pass of as the real stuff, but are exposed when the real professor and his daughter are also kidnapped. The stooges help them escape, using their secret formula to fuel a jeep. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Jules White Strikes Again!
17 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here's one man's ego getting in the way yet again of an otherwise fantastic comedy team. Jules White tacks on some really non-related "new" footage of the boys as some kind of CIA type sleuths to the original footage of "Fueulin Around" thereby proving yet again his ineptness as a serious comedy director. He apparently had connections at Columbia who simply allowed him free reign to create any kind of "hashed" up film that he wanted. Less anyone forgets, this guy used to direct one reel films of dogs in costume back in the early 1930's and have actors speak the words for them. Quite a qualification for directing top notch comedians like The Stooges or Buster Keaton, whom he "directed" toward the latter's end of his career. This short is just a bunch of clips added on to an already perfect short so don't waste your time with this one. As usual, watch the original first.
