The stooges run a local drug store and are about to have their lease taken away by Amos Flint, the mean old man who owns the place. When Flint kicks his wife out for being old, the stooges try to help her by inventing a formula that makes old people young. Their concoction turns the wife into a beautiful young woman, and Flint offers the boys their store for free if they'll transform him as well. They agree, but he turns into a five-year-old after he swallows the serum, and the boys leave on the run.Written by

The first five minutes of this Three Stooges short has a lot of laughs, more than the next dozen minutes (which was okay, but nothing that great.).
Of course, I've always loved Emil Sitka, who usually plays a crotchety old man who gives-and-takes abuse. He's hilarious in here as "Amos Flint" the owner of a drug store run by The Stooges. He not only plans to kick out the boys but kick out his wife, too, because "she's an ugly, old hag." The Boys give her a room in the back and try to discover a concoction for the "fountain of youth" to help the old woman and make money for themselves.
The rest of the short is basically two long skits - making the formula and then - tacked on after the main story was over a bubblegum skit which was kind of lame.
