Synopsis by Mark Deming
It's time to get Shemped with this home video collection, which serves up three Three Stooges shorts featuring Shemp Howard, Larry Fine, and Moe Howard at their comic best. Listen Judge finds the Stooges charged with vagrancy, so they try to be on their best behavior when they're hired to repair a wealthy woman's doorbell -- but after they scare away the servants, the boys wind up helping the lady of the house stage a birthday party that soon becomes a disaster. Moe, Larry, and Shemp invent a youth elixir in Bubble Trouble; their landlord (who is ready to evict them) is impressed when the potion shaves a couple decades off of his wife, but when he takes a bit too much himself, the results are surprising! And in Dunked in the Deep, the Stooges discover that their next door neighbor is a spy working for an enemy nation. He's stashed some secret microfilm inside a melon, and the boys are determined to find it and turn their neighbor over to the police, before the information falls into the wrong hands.
