  • Pretty weak line up. (in my opinion) None of them fell in my top 10 favorites. I'll take Self-Made Maids, just for the effort it took to make it.

    Well, this isn't a battle of shorts.. just the ones that are rarely seen either on TV or video. I'm not huge on the Curly lineup, either, which is why I cast my first vote for Slaphappy Sleuths. You have to admit all of the classic Curly's are included in the 130-short syndication package and these are some decent Shemps.

    If this were a battle of the classic Curly's, then we'd have something interesting -  but being we did something like that recently with Moe Hailstone's new DVD game that seems kind of pointless so soon.

  • This round I'll vote for He Cooked His Goose. I really like this one, its nice to see them break format every
    once in awhile and I think it works in this, and how can you not love the music that plays whenever Larry gets
    an evil thought in his brain.

  • Three Pests in a Mess

    Easily a Curly classic!

    "Did you kick me?"
    "No!"

    This short also has one of the biggest technical goofs, ever, in a Stooge picture. Vernon Dent says he's giving a masquerade party, Conklin is a happy little devil, smiling and enjoying a drink and looking around and reacting as though a party is happening offscreen. Thing is, there's no party sounds-- no voices, music or nothin'!

    A jerk with a quirk may do the work. Or, a turk with a dirk may stick a clerk! Gut gesagt?

    In total agreement. One of my all-time favorite Curly's. My vote goes to Three Pests in a Mess as well.

  • My vote is for "Rhythm & Weep."  That's probably my favorite of the later Curly's.

  • I would have to agree with "Jazz Bill", this is a pretty weak line-up of choices.  But picking from the line-up I would like to cast my vote as follows please.  Thank you for taking the time to post my vote I do appreciate it.

    And Moron, I didn't count anything written in your post since you didn't read the first post at all. If you'd like to play please follow the rules.

    I looked back at the rules and realized that I can vote each day.  (I must have overlooked it the first time.)

    If I can vote for the same short, make mine Scrambled again!  I just love Scrambled Brains Eggs for breakfast!   ;D

    Normally I'm not one for some rules in a game on a message board, but when someone replies with basically every short on the list and doesn't read what I initially wrote it makes it harder to tally up the votes.

    I need a life. haha.
