Storyline

Three druggists travel with a Milquetoast inventor, Schuyler, and his girlfriend, Diane, to ancient Greece on a newly invented time machine. There, the evil tyrant, Odius, takes a shine to the woman and has the guys enslaved as galley rowers using the excuse of the three druggists helping a rebel leader, Ulysses, escape. The rigors of the rowing pump Schuyler up into a muscleman with strength comparable to Hercules himself, who is in the employ of Odius. The threesome get the idea of raising money by promoting Schuyler as Hercules for a series of physical contests. Using a combination of his great strength and, a judicious use of a large supply of potent tranquilizers Curly-Joe brought with him, Schuyler is a success. However, this leads to trouble when the real McCoy learns about the imposter. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

I never knew they had custard pies in ancient Greece
21 January 1999 | by barry-28See all my reviews

When the Three Stooges are accidentally sent to ancient Greece in a time machine they accidentally change history. Changing it back includes encounters with Cyclops, Hercules (the real one and a ring in) and, of course, custard pies.
