The first Stooges short to re-use old footage; the canoe scene at the end is from Whoops, I'm an Indian! (1936), which was why they change clothes before boarding the canoe (to match the footage).
The tune when they drop balls connected to their chains is the NBC theme.
Production number: 268.
The story has no ending. The Stooges escape with their lives, but they leave the situation worse for the starving colonists, with the natives worked up, openly hostile and thirsting for revenge.
