I can see why this episode is ranked among a favorite by many and it definitely deserves to be up there.
Most of the syndication episodes ranged from very good to great but this episode overall was a poorly made episode.
I also thought "Holy Heisenberg" was one of Egon's best lines.
The short may be a little slow in parts but it does have some funny moments, this short is far more deserving than just 1 out of 10 stars, I give this short a 6 out of 10.
While I consider the Pink Panther shorts from 1964-68 to be the Golden Years this episode is on par with the best shorts of the Golden Years, the 1969-72 was also a really good era for the Pink Panther shorts but not quite in the same league as the episodes from 1964-68, the 1974-76 Pink Panther were a hit and miss for me and the 1977-80 shorts was where they really hit rock bottom, many of the shorts from 1977-80 were mediocre at best and the music seemed to be too fast and the gags weren't as well timed.
If you loved the cartoon then you should give this movie a try, I give this movie a 6.5 out of 10.
The boys are discharged from the army and their father tells the boys that they'll be working on a farm and they buy the farm for $1000 and their car (which is a piece of junk) and the same thing goes to the farm and the only livestock they got is a bird and a ostrich, there's a funny scene when Curly steps on a loose board and it hits Moe right in the face, later on the guy they bought the farm is stopped by the police to tell them that a bunch of Japs escaped from a relocation center and after the cop is done talking to him, the car wouldn't start and he actually mutters 'b@$!ard' (a cuss word on a 1940's stooge short).
Then the stooges witness an ostrich eating blasting powder and Curly tears up the feathers and starts a fan dance and later on they start cleaning out the pumpkins and the Japs show and they put their heads inside of a pumpkin, SICK!! And the stooges blow up the Japanese with the ostrichs egg which had blasting powder in it.
I don't understand that why people come down really hard on this short, I actually think that this is one of the best stooge shorts of all time, I also can't believe that one viewer stated that he likes the awful Joe Besser short Sweet and Hot (which I believe was their worst short) better than this stooge classic.
I give this short 9/10.
The boys appear to be doctors but they are janitors working the night shift and there's a funny scene when Curly swallows a goldfish and Moe and Larry try to catch the fish with a fishing pole and when one of the bad guys gets shot and they make the stooges operate and they wounded bad guy falls outside the window and the bad guys flee only to get caught at the end of the short.
The first half is hilarious but the second half loses its steam and I think that this short is one of Top 20 worst stooge shorts with Curly in it.
If you ever watch this movie, don't watch it for the storyline, watch it for the girls and did you know that Kristy McNichol was originally going to be in Bad News Bears (1976) but Tatum O'Neal got the role instead.
1/10, the only reason why I give it a 1 instead of a 0 is cause it had some slightly enjoyable parts.
