Storyline

The stooges accompany Professor Jones on an expedition to Venus, where they discover that the Venusians are planning to conquer the earth with an army of zombies. When the boys learn that they're going to be turned into zombies, they escape. The scene changes to the stooges' apartment where we learn they are just telling a bedtime story to their kids (also played by the stooges) while they wait for the babysitter to arrive. When the babysitter shows up, she looks like one of the zombies and the boys exit in a hurry. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Only if you have twenty minutes to waste.
8 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While not totally awful, it's certainly a very far cry from being a good Stooge comedy. And that's really too bad because despite the fact that Joe Besser refused to take any of the traditional pokes and slaps that Moe used to hand out to Curly and Shemp, he was otherwise a fine comedian. Check him out in Abbott & Costello's "Africa Screams" where Joe actually has some screen time with Shemp. At this time Colombia Pictures was obviously trying to "wind up" the Stooges contract so the writing and direction are just not there for them. A sad commentary on the state of affairs for the comics at this time in the late 1950's. If you have absolutely nothing else to do, then do watch this short and you'll see automatically how things had declined for this type of comedy during the "cold war" rock and roll era of the late 50's.
