Alternate Versions

Due to its violent content, the scene where Curly uses a climbing spike to get up to the top of the telephone pole was slightly edited where the spike pokes Moe's head, eye, and ear. Though some TV stations air the scene uncut, even when the short was released to TV in 1958 as part of the syndication package. See more »

A must see for Stoogemaniac's.
2 April 2010 | by ElijahCSkuggsSee all my reviews

The most violent Three Stooges episode you say? Count me in, bub! In this episode the trio of troublesome are using a sort of door-to-door, work-for-hire type of racket to get some bread. They luck out at a house, and are supposed to fix the doorbell. Easy enough. Well, luck be true for the gang they've accidentally knocked on the front door of a Nazi Safehouse. Besides making a total mess of the place, hurting one another and poor, Dudley Dickerson, they also catch wind of their Nazi issues. All of this combines for another classic and hilarious Stooges episode.

Even though it's coined the most violent episode, don't be surprised to catch yourself scratching your noggin trying to figure out why it was banned for violence. The episode is, I suppose, a bit more violent, as Curly really gets the woiks here, being electrocuted, lit on fire, and his nose sharpened...but I'm thinking the depiction of the German sub sinking, and the men on board frantic about to die, was deemed the selling point for hitting the red button. But ya never know.

I do have to give a special shout-out to Dudley Dickerson's role in this one. Of course he plays the stereotype black servant, as were the times, but phewy, he was hilarious in this. Those poking eyeballs of his were the perfect ingredients for amazing comedy. And that telephone scene...oh boy, just watch the episode and TRY not to bust a gut!
