Pop Goes the Easel (1935)
. Moe holding out his hand to Curly and asking him to "pick out two" fingers. Curly does, and Moe pokes him in the eyes with them. This would be a recurring joke. In addition, the short contains a very rare scene in which Moe delivers a slap in the face to several people at once. At the end of the clay fight scene, Moe stops everyone and asks, "Who started this?!" Larry yells, "YOU did!", to which Moe angrily replies, "Oh, YEAH?!" and, with right hand extended, spins in a counter-clockwise motion, slapping everyone around him.
. A clay throwing fight, a precursor to the classic pie fights which would become a staple of the Stooge films. The first genuine pie fight would appear the following year in Slippery Silks (1936).
. Moe holding out his fist to Curly and saying, "See that?" When Curly replies, "Yeah," Moe smacks the fist dismissively, which swings in a circle behind his body, over his head, and bops Curly on the head with it.
. Curly dressing in drag, a gag that would be revisited in several later Stooge shorts, such as Uncivil Warriors (1935), Movie Maniacs (1936), Whoops, I'm an Indian! (1936), Mutts to You (1938), Nutty But Nice (1940), Matri-Phony (1942), Micro-Phonies (1945) and Uncivil War Birds (1946).
