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>

why do people hate this short so much?
14 October 2013 | by (Walla Walla, WA) – See all my reviews

I don't understand why people are so hard on this short, I actually thought this was one of the better Stooge shorts featuring Joe Besser, the short had a good cast (Emil Sitka, Phillip Van Zandt, Gene Roth, Harriette Tarler), a decent script and some funny moments such as the dinner table scene, them freeing Emil Sitka's character, Larry & Joe being scared of the zombie while Moe thought they were playing charades and Larry accidentally hitting Moe in the head with a hammer and then Moe rubbing a wooden sander on Larry's head, watch Larry's facial reactions to him getting his head rubbed by a wooden sander! IMO that scene is up there with some of the best moments in Stooge history.

Short the short may be a little slow in parts but it does have some funny moments, this short is far more deserving than just 1 out of 10 stars, I give this short a 6 out of 10.
