Lovely short film from the Soviet Union, complete with the obligatory for the time, positive political message that for once does not spoil the film. The bonus is that you do not need to understand Russian to have a good laugh, as it should be with good comedy. If you are of a more closed mind you would just say that this is just a rip-off of the Three Stooges, and in a way you would be correct but for the wrong reasons! The Three Stooges were great and so are these three fellows although the undoubted star is the dog.
I do not know if there still exists a good print of this, I have never seen one, even on DVD but would recommend anyone to watch this no matter what languages you do or do not speak.
