Featuring Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Joe Besser
The Stooges go to the planet Senuv (Venus spelled backwards) and encounter electrical women and a monster.
This being the Three Stooges, there is a certain amount of energy to the proceedings. But the energy feels forced and somewhat desperate, the gags are weak, and the timing is off. This is the Stooges near the end of their career in shorts, though they would have a few more features come their way once Joe Besser departed and Curley Joe DeRita came on board. This is probably the weakest of their shorts that I’ve seen.
