Movie Nuttball likes everything & anything....apparently.
17 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Grade ZZZZ and from 1 to 10? I'd give it about a -5000! It's a stupid concept even for the Stooges to even consider but a contract is a contract and stinko script or not they had to do it. This is the very germ that killed off the whole studio system in the 1950's. Big stars like Cagney, Bogart, Edward G. Robinson actually preferred not working as opposed to starring in just any kind of muck script they were handed. And Columbia being less and less interested in producing two reel comedies must have thought that they'd not only kill short comedies off but the Stooges careers as well. And with a 300 pound blubbering blubber ball like Joe Besser included as a "third stooge", it was like dragging Dracula out into the very light of day. A Sure killer. This short is not to be taken as any serious example of Stooge comedy by any stretch of the imagination. This short is more like a first draft of Sesame Street or Romper Room. Strictly for the 1 to 4 year old type of audience. Shame on you Moe and Larry! You should have sued Columbia for violation of "artistic integrity" or something or just gone on strike.
