Storyline

Joe wins a contest and is promptly fleeced out of his winnings by some con men. When the stooges go to recover his money, the bad guys convince them that they can get rich by posing as children and becoming the wards of a millionaire. The boys go along with the plan, not realizing that the "millionaire" and his pretty niece are in on the scam and are planning to knock them off. The stooges foil the plan and recover Joe's money.

Do barbeques have pits?
1 April 2003 | by (Walla Walla, WA) – See all my reviews

Even though I'm not really a fond of the Joe Besser shorts, this is an exception due to the return of write Searle Kramer who wrote classic shorts from the late 1930's and the short feels more like a decent Shemp short cause it does have crooks involved and I hope that next time that the stooges come back on, they'll show this short due to the fact that AMC didn't play it.

The short begins as Joe Besser winning $15,000 and Moe and Larry are worried about him, and Moe calls the police only to find that Joe came out and when Joe was about to take a bite off of his sandwich, Moe yells at him, Joe got ripped off and together they try to find Joe's money, then they meet the two crooks (in disquise) and they send the boys to a home where they will 'take care' of them, in order to know the rest of the plot you gotta see it for yourself and I think the people who don't like Joe Besser should give this short a try and he gets hit at least a couple times.
