Shemp Howard in Society Mugs was very funny to me
1 August 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

While I saw lots of Three Stooges comedies on afternoon television in the late '70s, I admit I don't remember Termites of 1938. So on discovering Society Mugs on YouTube, I found myself laughing at the antics of Shemp Howard and Tom Kennedy as exterminators mistaken for escorts from college. They turn a society party upside down with their unorthodox manners concerning dining and music. That plus lots or rats, some near-close calls with drills, some Stooge foils like Christine McIntyre and Vernon Dent, and a nice appearance by Charles Williams from It's a Wonderful Life makes this a very hilarious short for me. A look at Shemp outside of brothers Moe and Curly and Larry Fine. Society Mugs comes highly recommended.
