Shemp fans rejoice! This home video release collects three classic Three Stooges comedies with Shemp Howard starring alongside Moe Howard and Larry Fine. Hot Scots finds the boys traveling to Scotland, where they hope to become crime fighters with Scotland Yard. They have to settle for work as gardeners, but that doesn't stop them from guarding the castle of the esteemed Earl of Glenheather. In Fuelin' Around, the Stooges are laying carpet at the home of Professor Sneed, a rocket scientist working on a secret government project, when Armenian spies break in and take Larry hostage, convinced that he's Sneed (and making a liar of everyone who ever said, "That Larry -- you can tell he's no rocket scientist!"). And Larry, Moe, and Shemp travel to the South Seas in Hula-La-La, in which a movie studio needs to hire three dance instructors for an upcoming musical set in the tropics -- the studio ends up with the Stooges instead.
