Stooge Goofs   (11)
  • Bubbles emerge too early
    In the last scene when Shemp has the bubble emerge from his ears, they start to ooze out before he starts puffing.

  • Extra Sound Effect
    When Moe and Larry are beating Shemp on the head to help â€Å"bring out the idea in the back of his head”, Moe takes a hammer and hits Shemp on the head with it only once, but there are two â€Å"bang” sound effects.

  • Getting Up Again
    After the excited man knocks over another customer, the customer gets up from the floor, but in the next shot, he's still lying on the floor, then he gets up again.

  • Line Flub
    Emil Sitka messes up a line when he says â€Å"You haven't heard of me...the last of me yet!”

  • Messy or Neat Hair?
    When Moe begins mixing the chemicals in the boot, Shemp's hair is messy, but it's neatly pushed back in the next shot.

  • Missing Part
    When Moe asks Shemp and Larry for the â€Å"gauger” (a hammer) during the scene where they're feeding Flint the formula, Shemp and Larry repeat â€Å"Gauger!” and hand it to him. Then when Moe's about to use it, the camera suddenly cuts to Shemp and Larry repeating â€Å"Onion!” and handing Moe an onion. They didn't show Moe finishing using the â€Å"gauger”, then asking Shemp and Larry for the onion.

  • Missing Sound Effect
    During the cake-eating scene, when Moe bops himself on the head continuously, there is no sound effect. They must've realized this error when reusing this scene later in BUBBLE TROUBLE since in that remake, they add sound effects for Moe's self-bops.

  • Mouthing Larry's Line
    When Larry says to Moe â€Å"Put that pestle down, man!”, it looks like Moe is mouthing that same line.

  • Shemp's Mouth
    After Shemp swallows the jumping beans and he beginseeb-eeb-eebing, the camera cuts to the next shot and he suddenly has some stuff around his lips which wasn't there before.

  • Stepping on Moe's Line
    When Shemp hands Moe the marshmallows, he's about to say his â€Å"Has marshmallows got pits?” line too early while Moe is still talking, so he stops until Moe is done.

  • Visible rod for jumping beans
    In the scene after the jumping beans "jump" out of the mortor, you can see a rod of some sort from under the table that helped push them out.

Transcription by Moron4392:  

This short starts off where we see a business window that reads as follows:


CUT THROAT DRUG STORE
EVERYTHING FROM A NEEDLE
TO A BATTLESHIP

WE ALSO SODA
SELL DRUGS FOUNTAIN

We now see Moe raising the window blind to begin a new day of trade.

We now see Larry who has a happy but yet mischievous look on his face as he is talking to a customer.

LARRY to the (Male) INK PEN CUSTOMER: (As Larry is happily trying to sell a fountain pen to the customer): "Furthermore, it can't leak, cause it uses no liquid, dry air, listen, (Larry is now whistling here), try it and I'm sure you'll buy it!"

(Male) INK PEN CUSTOMER to LARRY: (As the customer is happily listening to Larry's sales pitch is now taking the fountain pen and is saying in a questionable ton of voice): "Oh, air, hunh!?"

LARRY to the (Male) INK PEN CUSTOMER: (In a low and happy voice): "Yeah!"

We now see the Ink Pen Customer with the fountain pen in his hand as he is pointing it at Larry and is pulling the leaver where you insert the ink cartridge tubes and is now squirting Larry in the face with ink.

Larry is now looking at The Ink Pen Customer as he is wiping ink off of his face with a hurt and mischievous look on his face as the customer is giving Larry a mad and disgusted look. (Larry did not complete his business transaction).

We now see Moe approaching a counter to assist a lady customer with light bulbs.

MOE to the (Lady) LIGHT BULB CUSTOMER: (As Moe is brushing off his hands and is going behind the counter in a happy mood says): "Yes, mame?"

(Lady) LIGHT BULB CUSTOMER to MOE: (As she is handing Moe a light bulb says): "I'll take this one, will you test it please?"

Moe is now happily taking the light bulb from the lady as he has now turned on a testing socket and is holding the light bulb in one hand as he is inserting a finger from his other hand into the empty socket. The light bulb is now lighting up. Moe is now removing his finger from the test socket and he is blowing out the light bulb like you would a candle and is now putting the light bulb back into its protective cover sleeve.

MOE to the (Lady) LIGHT BULB CUSTOMER: (As Moe has a happy look on his face and is putting the light bulb into a paper sack says): "Fifteen cents please!"

The Lady Light Bulb Customer is now paying for the light bulb and is now exiting as she is giving Moe a look of wonderment like she thought Moe was haunted. Moe is now happily straightening up some top shelf stock.

We now see Shemp with a male customer as Shemp is now happily demonstrating to the customer a fishing rod as Shemp is casting the rod to show him how it works.

SHEMP to the (Male) FISHING ROD CUSTOMER: (As Shemp has a happy look on his face as the customer has a look of dismay on his face as Shemp is now casting the rod): "It's the time to give it the old one, two, the cast."

Shemp has now casted the fishing rod with a look of happiness on his face as the Fishing Rod Customer is now looking at Shemp with a dazed look on his face.

SHEMP to the (Male) FISHING ROD CUSTOMER: (In a serious manner as he is professionally 'gigging' his rod and the customer is watching in a polite manner): "The cast, out there, no matter what hooks onto the line you gotta get 'em, don't let this thin line (Shemp is now slightly pulling on the line) worry ya. You'll get the biggest fish you can get on this line, watch this."

The customer is still watching Shemp in a polite and interested manner as we now see Shemp winding back the fishing wire.

SHEMP to the (Male) FISHING ROD CUSTOMER: (As Shemp has now finished winding in the wire and has caught a ladies skirt): "Oh, man!"

We now see a lady running away in a state of embarrassment and panic to hide as she no longer has her skirt on. As she is running for cover we see across the street a store named, "Charley's Smoke Shop", Cigars and Cigarettes.

Shemp is now laughing hysterically as he is holding the fishing rod with the skirt on it and is watching the poor embarrassed lady running away in a full state of panic. As the Fishing Rod Customer is standing there with a horrified look on his face at Shemp.

SHEMP to the (Male) FISHING ROD CUSTOMER: (Still laughing hysterically and is slapping his thighs with a mischievous look on his face says): "Ain't that lady bull-legged?"

(Male) FISHING ROD CUSTOMER to SHEMP: (As the customer is now giving Shemp a really mad look and is shouting to Shemp in a state of madness): "That's no lady, that's my Mother-In-Law!"

The Fishing Rod Customer has now grabbed the skirt from Shemp's fishing rod as he is running out of the store in a total state of disgust as Shemp is standing there still holding his fishing rod with a look of wonderment on his face. (Shemp has now made an incomplete business transaction).

SHEMP to the (Male) FISHING ROD CUSTOMER: (As the mad customer has now exited the store and Shemp has a mischievous look on his face shouts): "Come back with that bait!"

As the Fishing Rod Customer was just walking out of the door he is now getting knocked down by another male customer that is running into the store in a horrified state of panic and is shouting loudly for help.

(Male) PRESCRIPTION CUSTOMER: (As he is looking around the store in panic shouts): "Service, service, service!"

We now see Shemp, Larry, and Moe running up to the customer in a hurry and helpful manner to the panicking Prescription Customer.

SHEMP, LARRY, and MOE to the (Male) PRESCRIPTION CUSTOMER: (As they are running up to him and are saluting him. Larry is hitting Moe in the head as Moe is now taking his hands and is hitting both Shemp and Larry hard on their heads): "At your service!"

(Male) PRESCRIPTION CUSTOMER to MOE, LARRY, and SHEMP: (As he is grabbing them in a full blown state of worry and panic is shouting at them): "Boys, boys, listen, this is an emergency, my wife is sick and the doctor didn't have anything to write the prescription on, so he wrote it on my shirt!"

The worried and panicked Prescription Customer is now showing Shemp, Moe, and Larry the prescription on his shirt as they are looking at it in a state of worry.

LARRY to the (Male) PRESCRIPTION CUSTOMER: (As Larry is pointing a finger at the customer and says in a happy state as he is leaving to fetch the prescription): "We got that all ready made up!"

SHEMP to the (Male) PRESCRIPTION CUSTOMER: (As Shemp is pointing a finger at him and says to him in a professional manner): "That's two bucks."

PRESCRIPTION CUSTOMER to SHEMP: (As he is reaching into his pocket and is getting out his billfold says in an agreeable voice): "Sure, fine, oh!"

We now see the customer handing Shemp the money as Shemp is putting it into his shirt pocket and Larry is handing him the prescription and the customer is now running off in a hurried state.

MOE to the (Male) PRESCRIPTION CUSTOMER: (As the Prescription Customer is exiting we see Shemp and Moe approaching him and are putting their hands on his shoulders and Larry is standing behind Moe in a worried state as Moe is shouting to the customer): "Just a minute, just a minute!"

SHEMP to the PRESCRIPTION CUSTOMER: (As we see Moe standing there looking at the customer in a mischievous way and Shemp in now tuning the customer around says): "Get over here!"

PRESCRIPTION CUSTOMER to MOE, LARRY, and SHEMP: (As he has a look of worried madness on his face and is shouting at them in a state of panic says): "What's the idea?"

MOE to the PRESCRIPTION CUSTOMER: (In a professional tone of voice): "We've got to file every prescription."

SHEMP to the PRESCRIPTION CUSTOMER: (As Shemp has a mad look on his face and says to him in a serious tone of voice): "it's the law!"

MOE to the PRESCRIPTION CUSTOMER: (In a mad voice says as Moe is ripping off the portion of customers shirt with the prescription on it says): "Yeah!"

Shemp is standing next to the customer with a sheepish smile on his face as the customer is now looking at Moe with a worried look on his face as Moe is now taking the prescription and is balling it up and handing it to Larry.

MOE to LARRY: (As Moe is handing Larry the prescription says): "File this!"

We now see Shemp exiting from the customer to his left while Larry and Moe are going to their rights and are filing the prescription.

PRESCRIPTION CUSTOMER: (Says in a total worried state as he has the prescription in his hand): "Oh, my wife!"

We now see Mr. Flint the proprietor of the store now hobbling in on his cane as the panicking Prescription Customer is jumping over Mr. Flint in a hurry to get home to his wife. Mr. Flint has now turned around and is looking at the customer with a dazed look on his face.

Mr. Flint is now stomping around the store in a full blown state of madness as he is pounding his cane on the floor and Moe and Larry are sneaking to another section of the store.

MR. FLINT: (Shouting in madness as he is pounding his cane on the floor and is shouting madly): "What the devil's goin' on here?"

Shemp is now running out to greet the mad Mr. Flint who is hobbling around the store on his cane with one hand on his back.

SHEMP to MR. FLINT: (As he is running to him with a mischievous look on his face and in a mischievous tone of voice says): "Well, well, if it ain't our Landlord, Mr. Flint!"

Mr. Flint is standing there with his cane to support himself as Shemp is looking at him mischievously and Larry and Moe are now approaching Mr. Flint with worried looks on their faces.

MR. FLINT to SHEMP, LARRY, and MOE: (As we see Shemp, Larry, and Moe looking at Mr. Flint in worry as he is shouting at them madly): "Cut the soft soap, I just came to inform you that you'll have to vacate at the end of the month, when your lease expires!"

MOE to MR. FLINT: (As Moe, Shemp, and Larry are now looking at Mr. Flint in horrified states of sadness and Moe is using hand gestures to support madness asks): "Why?"

MR. FLINT to MOE: (As Larry and Shemp are also standing there listening in panic): "Because, I made a deal with the 'Pinch Penny Market', at three times the rent you are paying me!"

LARRY to MR. FLINT: (As Moe, Shemp, and Larry are looking at Mr. Flint in a really sad and hurtful manner as Larry says): "But, we've been here ten years!"

SHEMP to MOE and LARRY: (With a look of mischievous on his face and in a mischievous tone of voice says as Shemp is now giving Mr. Flint a really hard whack on his back): "Oh, he's only jokin,' ain't ya?"

We now see Mr. Flint bending over in a horrible state of pain from Shemp whacking him on the back. Larry, Shemp, and Moe are now helping Mr. Flint up in a state of worry and apology.

MR. FLINT to LARRY, MOE, and SHEMP: (As he is doubled over in horrified pain shouts in a painful tone of voice): "Oow, oow, oow, oow, oh, oh, oh, oh, my lumbago, oow, oow, help me!"

Larry, Moe, and Shemp are now helping Mr. Flint to standing up as they are quickly standing him up as we now hear Mr. Flint's joints cracking and groaning from the pain and Mr. Flint along with Larry, Moe, and Shemp have looks of hurt on their faces.

MR. FLINT to SHEMP, MOE, and LARRY: (As he is shouting at them in painful madness): "Get me a plaster for my back, quick!"

MOE to LARRY: (As Moe knocks Larry on his arm and says in a worried state): "Get him a plaster!"

As Larry is now getting the plaster pad we see Shemp and Moe standing there by Mr. Flint's side with looks of deep hurt and regret on their faces. Mr. Flint is standing there shouting in pain, 'Oow, oow, oow, oow, ehy, ehy, ehy, ehy!"

MOE to MR. FLINT: (As Moe is giving Mr. Flint a look of carryingness and Shemp is also standing there with a look of deep remorse on his face as Mr. Flint is looking at Moe in a horrified state on pain as he is holding himself up on his cane): "Bend over!"

MR. FLINT to SHEMP and MOE: (As the poor really bruised and battered Mr. Flint is now looking at them in a painful state of panic shouts): "I can't!"

We now see Moe and Shemp taking hold of poor old battered and in reall pain Mr. Flint and are forcing him to bend over as we now once again here his joints croak and groan in pain. Shemp and Moe are now busy at work taking the old plaster pad off of Mr. Flint who is still stooped over in horrible pain and Mr. Flint is yelling in excruciating pain, 'Ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow!'

MR. FLINT to SHEMP and MOE: (As Mr. Flint is still bent over hobbling on his cane in total pain is shouting): "Take it easy!"

SHEMP to MOE: (As Moe is still holding Mr. Flint and Shemp is reaching into his pocket and is taking out a pair of 'Needle Nosed Pliars.' Says to Moe mischievously): "I'll get it, don't worry about it."

We now see poor bruised and battered and in excruiating pain Mr. Flint still bent over with a horrified look of pain on his face as Shemp has now pulled off the old plater pad.

MR. FLINT to SHEMP and MOE: (As he is yelling in an awful state of pain): "Youhn, hunh, hunh, hunh, youhn, hunh, hunh, hunh, youhn."

Mr. Flint is still bent over in pain and Shemp has now removed the old plaster pad as we now see the word 'MUSTARD' printed on Mr. Flint's back. Shemp and Moe have now flinched and jumped back in wonderment at seeing the word 'MUSTARD' on his back.

Shemp, Larry, and Moe now have looks of painful mischief on their faces as Shemp is now quickly removing the plaster pad from his back. Shemp has now successfully removed the plaster pad from Mr. Flint's back as Shemp is giving Moe a look of dumbfoundedness as Larry is also looking at Shemp and Moe with a dazed look and poor battered Mr. Flint is still jumping around in horrible pain. We now notice that Larry, Shemp, and Moe have applied a 'HORSERADISH' pad to Mr. Flint's back as we now see the word 'HORSERADISH' printed on Mr. Flint's back. Mr. Flint is yelling in horrible pain, 'Yow, yow, yow, yow, yow, yow, yow, yow, yow, yow, yow, yow'.

We now see Shemp, Larry, and Moe now running for their lives as Mr. Flint is now quickly standing up in a state of full blown madness and he is hitting at them with his cane as he has a hurtful and mean look on his face.

Mr. Flint is standing there with a really mean and nasty look on his face as he has now slammed his fist on a board that was sitting on the main service counter and has now hit himself in the face with a creamed pie.

MR. FLINT to SHEMP, MOE, and LARRY: (As he is wiping the pie from his face and is meanly waving his cane at them and is shouting wildly at them): "You'll regret this!"

Mr. Flint is now exiting in a state of madness as he still has pie on his face and Larry is standing behind him with a really mad look on his face as Mrs. Flint is standing there crying in hurt.

Mr. Flint has now left and we see Shemp, Moe, and Larry coming up behind Mrs. Flint laughing in a state of mischief.

LARRY to SHEMP, MOE, and MRS. FLINT: (As Shemp and Moe are standing there laughing, 'ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, and with looks of hurt but yet slightly mischievous looks on their faces as Mrs. Flint is still standing there in a state of hurt): "I bet that miser eats rusty nails for breakfast!"

LARRY to MRS. FLINT: (As Moe is standing there crying and Shemp and Larry have their hands on her in carryingness as Larry says): "We have a spare room in the back."

SHEMP to MRS. FLINT: (In a very carrying manner as he is saying to her in a gentle tone of voice): "And, you're welcome to it!"

MRS. FLINT to SHEMP: (As she is crying and says to him kindly): "Thank-you!"

Shemp and Larry are now helping the sad, crying and hurt Mrs. Flint to their room in the back of the store.

MRS. FLINT to SHEMP, MOE, and LARRY: (As Shemp and Larry are now opening the door to the spare back room and Moe is standing there crying she says): "Bless you, boys!"

MOE to SHEMP and LARRY: (As we see them standing there with really hurtful looks on their faces as Moe says in a crying voice): "Poor old woman, it's tough to get old!"

We now see Moe and Larry wildly and out of control pounding on Shemp's head in a fast and furious pace with their fists to help bring the idea to the front of Shemp's head.

SHEMP to MOE and LARRY: (As Shemp has a blank look on his face and really wants the idea to come forward says to them): "More, more, faster, eeb, eeb, eeb, eeb, eeb, eeb, eeb, eeb."

Shemp has now said, 'Faster, don't stop, faster,' as Moe and Larry are really wildly pounding on Shemp's head with their fists. Moe has now reached over and has grabbed a metal mallet and has hit Shemp hard on the head with it three times as Shemp is now standing there with his eyes bugging out and a look of an idea on his face.

SHEMP to MOE and LARRY: (As Moe has now successfully beaten the idea to the front of Shemp's head and we hear the sound of bells ringing and drums pounding. Shemp is standing there with a happy look on his face says): "I got it!"

MOE and LARRY to SHEMP: (As Shemp is standing there happily and Larry says to him in a questionable tone of voice, (off camera): "What is it?"

SHEMP to LARRY and MOE: (In a full blown state of happiness as Shemp is raising a fist in a state of pride): "A terrific idea, if we could discover a vitamin to make old people young, we'll become rich and famous!"

Moe has now fallen into their laboratory as we hear the sound of a gong going off.

LARRY to SHEMP: (As Larry has a mischievous look on his face and is pointing to the laboratory says): "After you doctor!"

SHEMP to LARRY: (As Shemp is now bowing at Larry and is extending a hand in agreement and is going into the laboratory backwards to prevent being kicked in his backside): "Why, certainly, professor!"

Shemp is now in the room while Larry is standing there with his hands balled in fists and has a mad look on his face and is saying, 'humn, humn, humn, humn, humn, humn' as he was not able to also kick Shemp.

We now see Shemp, Larry, and Moe at their working table that has a 'Mortar and Pestle' on it, a mixing beaker. Shemp has now put a few a additional ingreidents on their table with a happy look on his face.

As Shemp is now shooting in the 'P-Y-A-R-E-E-C-O-N', their formula is now smoking, popping and sparking out of control.

MOE to SHEMP: (As Moe is taking out the pestle from the mortar and is hitting Shemp hard on his head with it shouts to Shemp madly): "You put in too much."

SHEMP to MOE: (As Shemp is yelling in pain and is rubbing his sore head shouts back to Moe in madness): "What's the idea of hitting me with that pestal?"

MOE to SHEMP: (As Moe is standing there with a really mad look on his face shouts back to Shemp): "You're lucky I didn't hit you with the mortar!"

LARRY to MOE: (As Larry is now laughing says): "Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, 'The Mortar The Merrier'."

MOE to LARRY: (As Moe has now hit Larry hard on the head with the pestle and Larry is standing there with a really hurt look on his face says); "Quiet!"

LARRY to MOE: (As Larry is now rubbing his head in pain and has a painful look on his face shouts to Moe madly): "Put that pestle down, man!"

SHEMP to MOE and LARRY: (As he is standing there with a look of mischief on his face and is crossing his arms in madness is shouting to them): "Quit stallin', will ya?"

MOE to LARRY: (As Moe is now looking at Larry in a very mad state as he shouts madly to Larry): "C-O-T-T-O-N, come on C-O-T-T-O-N!"

LARRY to SHEMP and MOE: (As he is shouting at them in a very mad state says): "C-O-T-T-O-N!"

Larry is now slightly struggling with getting the 'C-O-T-T-O-N'. Larry has now gotten it and has hit Moe hard in the face with it.

SHEMP to MOE: (As Shemp is standing there really mad and madly shouts to Moe): "Come on, 'C-O-T-T-O-N'."

Moe has now madly hit Shemp in the face with the 'C-O-T-T-O-N.'

Shemp has now removed the 'C-O-T-T-O-N' from his face and has thrown it away as we now see it returning and hitting Shemp in the as Shemp is now catching it.

Shemp has now applied the 'C-O-T-T-O-N' into their concoction and Moe is happily mixing it in as Larry is standing there watching in a state of worry.

MOE to LARRY: (As Moe is standing there and mischievously pounding in the 'C-O-T-T-O-N' into their formula shouts to Larry): "M-I-X-E-R!"

LARRY to MOE: (As Larry is happily responding to Moe): "M-I-X-E-R!"

We now see Shemp putting some caps back on the bottles of ingredients they were using as Moe is looking at Larry and still mixing their formula.

LARRY to MOE: (As Larry is now holding a knee length rubber boot says to Moe in a state of mischief): "Here's the 'M-I-X-E-R'!

MOE to LARRY: (As Shemp and Moe are carrying the formula over to Larry says): "Comin' up!"

MOE to SHEMP and LARRY: (Shemp and Larry are holding the 'M-I-X-E-R-' as Moe is happily pouring in the concoction): "Okay!"

As Moe is shaking the 'M-I-X-E-R' he has now hit Shemp hard in the face, and then Larry in his face.

MOE to SHEMP: (As Moe is now giving Shemp an apologetic look and says to Shemp in an apologetic tone of voice): "Pardon me!"

MOE to LARRY: (As Moe is still shaking the 'M-I-X-E-R' says apologetically): "Excuse me."

As Shemp and Larry are rubbing their faces in pain and Moe is mischievously shaking the formula, they all now have looks of dazement on their faces and the mixture is now popping, sparking, and crackling loudly and wildly.

MOE to LARRY: (As Moe has now set down the boot and gives Larry a look of wonder says): "It's generating!"

Shemp, Larry, and Moe are now looking at the 'M-I-X-E-R' in a state of scaredness as is it popping and exploding wildly. They have now jumped back twice but are now doing a Congo style of a dance to the rhythm of the popping, crackling, and sparking wild mixture.

MOE to SHEMP and LARRY: (After they have done several dance steps is now hitting Shemp and Larry with his elbows and is shouting madly): "Hey, hey, break it up!"

MOE to SHEMP and LARRY: (As Shemp and Larry are standing there scared and Moe is approaching the wild boot gingerly says): "I better give it some air."

Moe, Larry, and Shemp are now approaching the wild mixture with pre-caution and have scared looks on their faces. Moe has now opened 'T-H-E M-I-X-E-R' and their formula is now out of control as it is sparking, flaming, and burning wildly. Larry, Shemp, and Moe have now jumped back in a full state of fright and panic.

We now see Shemp running over to a shelf and is picking up a glass of water and is taking a drink as Larry and Moe are standing there horrified panic.

MOE to SHEMP: (As Moe has a look of panic on his face shouts to Shemp with panic in his voice about the water): "On the fire!"

LARRY to SHEMP: (As Larry has a really outrageous look of panic on his face and is shouting to Shemp in a panicking tone of voice): "Come on, hurry up!"

We now see Larry and Moe standing there in panic as Shemp is now taking mouthfuls of water and is spitting them onto the wildly burning boot.

LARRY to SHEMP: (Really panicking out as Shemp has now poured the entire glass of water on the burning mixture): "M-O-R-E!"

SHEMP to LARRY and MOE: (As they all are standing there horrified beyond no end as Shemp is now getting a large bottle of water and some cotton says): "I'll get it!"

MOE to SHEMP: (As Moe is shouting to him in a total state of panic): "More H2O!"

Shemp has now thrown the water and cotton onto the burning formula. As Shemp, Moe, and Larry are standing there looking at it still scared.

SHEMP to MOE: (Also in a full blown state of panic says): "I got it!"

SHEMP to LARRY and MOE: (As Shemp has a look of worry on his face and is spreading his arms to keep Moe and Larry back says): "I think it is out fellas, hold everything, I'll take a look!"

Shemp is now approaching the boot and is opening it up as Moe and Larry are standing behind Shemp in a state of worry.

SHEMP to the BOOT: (As Shemp is now pulling a sticky and gooey piece of cotton from his face that boot shot to him): "Double-crosser!"

Moe and Larry are now looking at Shemp with looks on hurt on their faces as Shemp is now looking down the boot and is getting hit in the face with a black, gooping, tar like consistency blob of paste. Shemp is now walking away slightly staggering from being blinded by the black blob.

MOE to LARRY: (As Moe now has a look of meaness on his face as he is now attacking the wild boot and is grabbing it quickly): "Wait a minute, I'll get it, I'll strangle it!"

LARRY to MOE: (As Larry is now helping Moe grab the boot with a panicked look on his face says): "Watch it, watch it!"

Moe and Larry are now fighting with the boot like a fish that is on a line and is struggling wildy to get free.

SHEMP: (In general conversation): "I wonder where that towel is, I left one here some place."

Shemp is now walking with his hand against some support poles on a chemicals shelf as his looking for a towel to wipe his face off with. As Shemp is now getting a towel blindly, has now spilled, (unknown to him, a large box of 'Jumbo Mexican Jumping Beans') into the mortar.

Shemp is now wiping his face off and is primping up a bit as the beans are now jumping wildly in the mortar and on the counter top. Shemp is now happily primping humself up as his towel is now jumping wildly across the counter from the jumping beans, (unkown to Shemp).

Shemp is now totally spruced up as Larry and Moe are approaching him, and none of them have any recollection about the jumping beans.

MOE to SHEMP: (As Larry is now helping Moe with the boot as Moe says): "Move that thing over!"

SHEMP to MOE: (As Shemp is now moving over the mortar is mumbling to Moe): "All right!"

Moe now has the boot by himself as Larry and Shemp are watching Moe as Moe is now pouring some water into the boot.

MOE to SHEMP and LARRY: (As Moe is pouring some water into their crazy mixture and then is pouring it into the mortar): "There we are."

We now see Shemp, Larry, and Moe looking at their mixture in a state of happiness and success as it is jumping wildly in the mortar, (from the jumping beans that they no nothing about).

LARRY to MOE and SHEMP: (As Larry is shouting in full happiness): "Oh, boy, what energy, it's full of life."

We now see Shemp looking at Larry with a look of dismay as Larry is looking back with a look of scaredness and not me on his face.

SHEMP to MOE: (As Shemp is looking at Moe and is pointing to himself in a state of panic says): "Wait a minute fellas not me!"

We now see Shemp with a look of pain on his face as Shemp is now feeling the effects of their jumping bean mixture. Shemp is now jumping around and saying in worry, ta, ta, ta, ta, eeb, eeb, eeb, eeb, eeb, eeb, eeb, eeb, ta, ta, ta, ta, eeb, eeb, eeb, eeb, eeb, eeb, eeb.'

SHEMP to MOE and LARRY: (As Shemp is still jumping up and down in panic is yelling): "Moe help me, help me, Larry, help me, help me!"

LARRY to SHEMP: (In a carrying tone of voice says): "All right?"

SHEMP to MOE and LARRY: (As Moe and Larry are holding onto Shemp and Shemp is saying a low mischievous tone of voice): "Yeah, I'm fine."

Just as you think all's well with the world and everything is now back to normal we now see all three of them jumping out of control and yelling, 'ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow, ooow'.

SHEMP to MOE: (As Shemp is now mischievously handing Moe the stick says): "Ram Rod."""

MOE to SHEMP and LARRY: (As Moe is now mischievously accepting the stick and is inserting it down the fun-nell says): "Ram Rod!"

As Moe was busy 'mixing' the ingredients Shemp was watching Moe in a state of dazement.

We now see the poor battered Mr. Fling sitting up in a state of pain from all of the different shenanigans that was performed on him. Moe is standing by Mr. Flint and is holding his arm in care as we now see Mr. Flint jumping up and gasping for air and is saying, 'Huuu, huuu, huuu, huuu, huuu!' as we hear fire crackers exploding in the background.

MR. FLINT to MOE: (As Mr. Flint is looking at Moe in a state of pain on his face and panic in his voice says): "Is that the treatment?"

MOE to MR. FLINT: (As Moe is looking at Mr. Flint with a mischievous look on his face and says to Mr. Flint in a tone of mischief in his voice): "No, that's only the preliminary examination!"

We now see Larry and Shemp running up to Moe and Mr. Flint happily with a humongous-sized syringe.

LARRY and SHEMP to MOE and MR. FLINT: (As they are now proudly running up with the humongous syringe says): "Fountain Of Youth!"

We now see Mr. Flint hiccupping a gasping for air as Serena, Shemp, Moe, and Larry are now watching them in a state of pain.

MR. FLINT to SHEMP, MOE, and LARRY: (As he is gasping for air and is hiccupping out of control says): "I feel funny, very funny, something's happening, 'Hee, hee, hee, woo, woo, woo, woo, hee, woo, hee, woo, hee.'

We now see Shemp, Moe, and Larry huddled together as they are talking together as they are talking amongst themselves as Serena is standing behind them with her hand cupped to her ear so she can be able to hear what Shemp, Larry, and Moe are nos disgussing.

As Shemp, Moe, and Larry have now gotten up from their huddly they are now looking at Mr. Flint in worry and have deep looks of panic on their faces as well as Mrs. Flint. Shemp, Larry, and Moe have now flinched in total state of worry and panic.

We now see Mr. Flint shuttering and saying, 'Brrr, brrr, brrr, brrr, brrr, brrr, brrr, brrr, brrr, brrr, brrr, brrr', as he has been given way too much of the serum and is now regressing from an old haggerdy man down to a little, tiny baby.

All the while that Mr. Flint is now experiencing the changes we see Shemp, Moe, Larry, and Mrs. Flint starring at him with looks of helplessness and panic.

MR. FLINT to SHEMP, MOE, and LARRY: (In a full blown state of panic as his still shrinking right before their eyes says): "You dirty three timers, I'll get you for this, if it takes me another sixty years!"

We now see the partially shrunken Mr. Flint take a gat out from inside of his pocket as Mrs. Flint is now running into the backroom in total panic as Shemp, Larry, and Moe are running in panic for their lives as they are being shot at by Mr. Flint through the main entrance way.

Moe, Shemp, and Larry are now yelling in total panic as they are being shot at by the wildly mad an irate Mr. Flint.

As Moe, Larry, and Shemp have now successfully ran for their lives, we now see Mr. Flint tripping over his large trousers cuff and is falling to the gorund as he has now regressed down to a baby and is crying and screaming and rubbing his eyes and stomping his feet in a fit of rage as he is sitting there on the floor.

Now that the dust has settled from Mr. Flint's horrible experience with the 'Fountain Of Youth Serum,' we now see Moe busy at hand straightening up some top stock as a man is now approaching the sales counter.

We now see Moe looking at the customer in fear as the customer is now happily chewing and blowing bubbles with his bubble gum.

MOE to the (Male) BUBBLE GUM CUSTOMER: (In a very professional manner as the Bubble Gum Customer is still merrily blowing his bubbles): "Yes sir, what can I do for you?"

(Male) BUBBLE GUM CUSTOMER to MOE: (As he responds to Moe in a happy but yet serious tone of voice as he is continuing blowing his bubbles): "I want some bubble gum!"

MOE to the (Male) BUBBLE GUM CUSTOMER: (As Moe has now nodded at him says to him in very professional like tone of voice): "Yes, sir!"

The Bubble Gum Customer has now blown a gigantic-sized bubble and has popped it as Moe is looking at him in a state of fear as Moe is reaching for the box of bubble gums balls.

The Bubble Gum Customer is very happily blowing his bubbles as Moe is in a state of fear. Moe has now opened the box of bubble gum and is extending to the customer.

MOE to the BUBBLE GUM CUSTOMER: (As Moe is now representing the open box of bubble gum to the customer says in fear): "There we are!"

We now see the customer meticulously taking out one at a time and is setting them on the counter for a total of two gum balls.

MOE to the (Male) BUBBLE GUM CUSTOMER: (In a professional but yet state of fear says): "That'll be five cents!"

The Bubble Gum Customer has nodded at Moe in agreement as he is taking a nickel out of his suit coat pocket and is handing it to Moe.

MOE to the (Male) BUBBLE GUM CUSTOMER: (As Moe has now taken the nickel and has dropped it into the bubble gum box says in a professional manner): "Thank you!"

As the Bubble Gum Customer was exiting he blew one last gigantic bubble as Moe was watching him in fear. As Moe was watching the customer he didn't realize that he has now set the open box of gum balls on top of two closed boxes of marshmallows.

We now hear the very happy young Mrs. Flint humming gleefully as Larry is standing there wiping down a counter and is nodding his head and smiling in a state of happiness.

We now see the very happy Mrs. Flint come walking into the main sales area proudly carrying a white cake with one huge white candle inserted into the middle of it.

Mrs. Flint is humming loudly in joy as she is now proudly setting the cake on to the counter.

LARRY to SHEMP and MOE: (As Larry is looking at the cake in a full state of happiness and is shouting to Shemp and Moe in total happiness): "Hey, fellas!"

Moe and Shemp have now run up to the serving counter as they all are looking at the cake in total glee and delight.

SHEMP to MOE, LARRY, and SERENA: (As Shemp is looking happily at the cake as well as Larry and Moe in a full state of happiness as Shemp says): "Oh boy, a sky rocket!"

MRS. FLINT to SHEMP, MOE, and LARRY: (As she is proudly standing behind her cake with a huge smile on her face says): "No, no, no, it's a cake I baked to celebrate my re-birth, how do you like it?"

MOE to MRS. FLINT: (As Moe is smiling happily and has pounded his hands together in excitment says): "Oh, that's terrific!"

SHEMP to MOE, LARRY, and MRS. FLINT: (As he is pointing at himself and says to them in glee): "I'll get the marshmallows!"

We now see Shemp running over to a top shelf on the other side of the store and is happily grabbing what he thinks is a box of 'M-A-R-S-H-M-A-L-L-O-W-S!", but instead turns out to be the open box of gum balls that Moe set up there by mistake.

Shemp is now rubbing his hands together as he is looking at the shelf and is mumbling to himself, 'marshmallows, marshmallows, oh, marshmallows, here's one that is open!"

Shemp is now happily walking back with his box of 'M-A-R-S-H-M-A-L-L-O-W-S' back to the still happily humming Mrs. Flint as Moe and Larry are looking at the cake in glee.

As Mrs. Flint was happily straightening the candle on her cake she has now sniffed the air.

MRS. FLINT to MOE and LARRY: (As she is now slightly panicking says as she is now running back into the backroom and into the kitchen): "Oh, heavens, my roast!"

MOE to MRS. FLINT: (As she is now smiling at Moe as she is running back to check the roast): "Don't worry, we'll drape the cake."

As Moe was talking to Mrs. Flint, Larry was busy snitching a taste of the icing.

LARRY to MOE: (In a state of mischief as Larry has now been caught by Moe says): "Taste?"

MOE to LARRY: (As Moe has a mad look on his face and says back to Larry as he is now taking Larry's hand and is smacking Larry in the face with the icing): "No thanks, you take it, get outta here!"

As Moe has now madly shoved Larry away we now see Shemp happily approaching the counter with his box of ' M-A-R-S-H-M-A-L-L-O-W-S'

SHEMP to MOE: (As Shemp has a serious look on his face as he is setting the 'M-A-R-S-H-M-A-L-L-O-W-S', (G-U-M B-A-L-L-S), down on the counter says): "Here's the 'M-A-R-S-H-M-A-L-L-O-W-S."

MOE to SHEMP: (As Moe is now in a slightly mad mood from Larry says): "All right!"

SHEMP to MOE: (As Shemp is looking at Moe mischievously asks Moe): "Does 'M-A-R-S-H-M-A-L-L-O-W-S' got pits?"

MOE to SHEMP: (As Moe is giving Shemp a mad look and is responding back to Shemp in a mad mood): "No, they're empty, like your skull, drape that cake, I'll bring the dishes."

SHEMP to MOE: (In a happy mood): "All right!"

We now see Moe exiting to get the dishes as Shemp is happily applying the 'M-A-R-S-H-M-A-L-L-O-W-S', (oops Gum Balls) to the cake." .

The placing of the gumbo cake scene seems very appropriate considering the stooges & Christine had reason to celebrate w/ the boys getting their lease and a small measure of revenge on the landlord & Christine's restored youth. Even if the cake scene was just tacked on to kill a few minutes, it's certainly not the worst routine ever. Just dig on the facial expressions as Moe, Larry, and Shemp have to play nice & force that crap down.

7 pokes

A dull Shemp short, especially since most of the good jokes come at the beginning and trail off. Emil Sitka gets good laughs as Mr. Flint, and what guy here can tell me they do NOT get turned on by the lovely Christine? A sub-par short, with an ending that seems tacked on. Two pokes.

A decent enough film, but the boys did make much better ones with Shemp. The look on Moe's face when the customer blows a bubble cracks me up every time. I know it's a plot point so Moe will accidentaly put the gum where the marshmallows go, but being that flabbergasted over a man blowing a bubble with his chewing gum? C'mon!

A pretty dull short. Not much of a great plot to work with, and the ending bubble gum/cake scene seemed very out of place. It could've been funnier if placed earlier in the episode (like they did in the remake; the only good thing about that remake, by the way), and it had just ended with Amos Flint crying like a baby after falling to the ground.

Got this short on DVD and just watched it last night. Very funny. A couple "weak" scenes but all in all a very entertaining short!

Re-review: An okay episode, but there were some weak scenes. I also agree that the marshmellow gumbo scene was wrongfully placed, but at least it was good. I did get a laugh, though when the Stooges were dancing to the sound of the first mixture they attempted to make.

A good episode, but the ending was quite weird. The Gumbo-cake gag reminded me of the cake scene in UNCIVIL WARRIORS and the soup scene in BABY SITTERS JITTERS, which were all really funny. It was also funny in the scene right after they give Christine the Fountain of Youth. A good short overall.Grade: B+

My opinions of a short tend to change a lot after I watch it again, and in this case, it has. There are many great and strong moments, but the ending is badly placed and this was corrected in the remake.Slaps: 6 Bonks: uncountable Punishment with objects: 63 pokesEdited by - Mike Holme on 12/4/2001 2:21:20 AM

I remember for sure that MOE had the black lips and it was at the end of the remake. When "All Gummed UP" is shown next time on AMC, I'll watch for black lips on Shemp, but I think they'll look like they always do all the way through.It's a Good short, just not very fast-paced.It was funny to see the words "mustard" and "horseradish" on Emil's back. I don't mind the elderly humor at all. I do't think this short insults elderly people, nor do I think that they make old age out to be a disease. They just know that nobody wants to look or be oldand new things are coming out all the time to change or destroy things that man doesn't like.Don't you know that man has been trying to come up with ways to make elderly people young for centuries now? All they've come up with so far is plastic surgrey and wrinkle cream. ISLIPP- but I don't break a HIPP. ©2001

I agree with the posts on the "marshmallow gumbo" scene looking spliced on at the end. It seems like the short went A-C-B instead of A-B-C. Still, despite its unevenness, it had some hilarious moments. And how did Shemp get that gunk on his lips?

This one was pretty bad, but worlds better than the remake. One of the highlights of the short was a scene that wasn't used in the remake which is when Shemp is forced to swallow the formula with the jumping beans! **/5Mike HolmeEdited by - Mike Holme on 8/23/01 8:45:13 PMEdited by - Mike Holme on 9/26/2001 1:59:15 AM

Okay, I know this short subject was NEVER meant to be taken seriously, but I've always found it to be quite disturbing. I've always thought humor about aging was in very poor taste whether it was on the Three Stooges, Carol Burnette or, wherever. I saw nothing funny about the conflict between the elderly man and woman either. Also seems like ageism at its worst to address old age as a "disease" which needs to be "cured". And the so called gag where the old man, shrinks, hits his head, and turns into a crying infant is just plain CREEPY to me! This gag was replaced in the remake, "Bubble Trouble", but it didn't make it much better. Both, "All Gummed Up" and "Bubble Trouble" are my least favorite Stooge short subjects. I know that everyone will not agree with my review and some may have strong objections to how seriously I take such obvious nonsense. I'll be the first to admit that my problems with this film have a lot to do with me and my own little quirks. When all is said and done, humor about aging is simply not my kind of humor. Ah, well. Different strokes. Get a life? I'm working on it. LOL
