| fine Stooges
Mildew College is a women's college expecting three new professors. Gas station attendants Larry, Curly, and Moe are left in charge. The three upper class professors stop at the station looking for service. The boys blow up the car and escape stealing an ice cream truck with the professors' suitcases. They don on the professors' robes and get mistaken for the real deal. Then the actual professors show up at the college. It's a fine Stooges. They have plenty of comedic actions. Blowing up the car seems a bit cheap. The singing is a little odd. The story is a bit random. There is a bit too many blowing up. It's perfectly fine Curly Stooges.
