IF it helps. I remember Larry was rubbing a car door with the drink, and the paint came off.

Please tell me that you're just a really bad typist.

The answers you are looking for are:
  • (1) The drink they were selling was Brighto (which was supposed to be a medicine, which the Stooges didn't understand at first.)
  • (2) The name of the episode is Dizzy Doctors.

The cheer "We are morons tried and true, and we'll do our yell for you'' was Moe, Larry & Curly in Half-Wits Holiday.

A "medicine" that you're supposed to drink, yet it can take the paint right off a car! No matter how many times I see that scene (and Vernon Dent's reaction), it always cracks me up. One of the funniest Stooges gags of all, and based on reality— back then, there were all sorts of quack remedies for sale, with all kinds of home-brewed ingredients in them... some not only worthless, but poisonous, too, just like Brighto would have been.

Not to mention what it does to Bud Jamison's uniform or that poor guy's hair!   :o

I think Moe's line sums it all up. Larry & Curly can't decide what Brighto's uses are, & Moe says, "You boys really want to know what it's for? It's for sale!"

And let's not forget the jingle:
Brighto, Brighto, makes old bodies new
We'll sell a million bottles
Woo woo woo woo woo woo woo

Um, I think that the cheer for Amalgamated Morons-- Local 6 and 7/8 goes more like this:

"We are Morons, tried and true! And we'll do our yell for you!"
The odd noises then follow.

No, that was in two shorts that I can think of, offhand:

Half-Wits' Holiday
Pies and Guys

Was it in another? It doesn't matter, anyway. We should have official sets one day, and you'll be able to relive those childhood memories in glorious, standard definition DVD quality, lovingly downconverted from high-definition masters...
Just in time for everyone to fuss that they should have been released on HD, Blu-Ray, or whatever format becomes dominant...
Furthermore, by the time we get to the later Shemp and Joe Besser sets, we may all be too old and senile to enjoy them anyway!

Where's that Fountain of Youth when you need it?

Although this has nothing to do with Dizzy Doctors or the topic (the drink they were selling), the name of their union was Amalgamated Association of Morons, Local 6 7/8.

I kind of agree with NyukNyuk. Although we obviously have differences of opinion about Dizzy Doctors being THE best of the Stooges shorts, it is soitenly far & away one of my favorites. I love it when Larry's wife calls him a "weasel faced porcupine".

Let's not forget the scene in which Curly hitches a ride with a guy.  When the man makes a U-turn in his car, Curly tells him to stop stating, "this is as far as I go."  I always get a kick out of that. :laugh:

That drink they were selling was Brighto, a snake-oil MEDICINE. This short was my favorite of all time, "Dizzy Doctors." Remember,  "Brighto, Brighto makes old bodies new! We'll sell a million bottles, woo-woo-woo-woo!"     Thank you Curley.
