Even worse than the already bad "Hoofs And Goofs"
24 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is the second worst stooge short. It is also a follow-up to "Hoofs And Goofs". The plot makes no sense especially since in the original, "Hoofs And Goofs" the end turned out to be a dream, but in this one, its real life. Plus, the plot about a talking horse is extremely stupid, and I knew this one was a stinker when I saw the horse rock her baby in the cradle! Once again, Besser is his annoying self, and even though he actually does get some punishment(mostly from Larry)this episode is still poorly written and there are only two parts that are mildly funny. Plus, the funniest one here isn't any of the stooges, it is supporting actor Emil Sitka. Overall, a terrible episode.
