All the World's a Stooge

Synopsis: The stooges are window washers who lose their jobs after Moe impersonates the dentist in whose office they were cleaning. On the run, they are hired by a millionaire to pose as children. It seems the man's wife wants to adopt some refugees to impress her society friends. Moe is Johnny, Curly is Frankie and Larry is Mabel. Everything goes fairly well as the lady shows off the stooges to her friends, but they finally irritate her husband so much that he goes after them with an ax.

Wait a minute.

Maybe you can drill it out with this.

What do you mean, "maybe"?

We ain't getting no place fast.

Think we'll have to blast.

Boy, that's an idea.

Let's get some powder.

Either you fire those

janitors or I'll move.

They're fired!

Hey, what are you doing?

Are you all right, Mr. Bullion?

Yeah, feels fine, Doc.

Gee, thanks. Send me your bill.

Come back here you guys!

Hey, what are you

fellas doing in my car?

We just escaped from a scaffold.

- Fugitives, eh?

- Now wait a minute.

He means we're refugees.

- Refugees?

- Yeah, that's it.

How would you boys like a nice home?

Home, James!

Come on.

Not a bad joint.

Remember, you're

supposed to be children,

just three dumb kids.

We get you, boss.

- Hey, I relent that.

- You relent what?

He called us "children".

Act your age.

- Leave him alone!

- Quiet.

Oh, a Jack the Ripper,

eh? Hitting little girls?


I have a surprise for you, dear.

Don't tell me you brought

me my little refugee?

Three of them.

- Where are they?

- Children.

This is Johnny, Frankie and Mabel.

They're precious.

Children, meet your new mammy.

Who darned our socks

and washed our shirts

when we were helpless, little squirts?


Who kept the buttons on our clothes?

Who scrubbed our ears and blew our nose?


Oh, mammy,

it's your little boy, Sammy,

coming home from Alabamy.

Put on those eggs and hammy.

Don't flimflam me, mammy.



Oh, mammy!

Are you hurt, dear?

Oh, mammy.

A luncheon is served, madam.

Eats! Come on!

Oh, I'm sorry, darling. Very sorry.

You nitwit. What would Emily Post say?

Come and get it.

Well, that's that.

Hey, where's the dessert?

Eat your spinach, children.

- Here, eat your spinach.

- I don't like spinach!

Why, you gonna eat it

whether you like it or not.
