Moe says "we don't do that anymore", after one of the Stooge lookalikes 'eye pokes' one of the other lookalikes. This comes from a agreement Moe Howard and Larry Fine made with Joe DeRita at the beginning of the full length movie series. The agreement was that the eye poke would not be used by the group any longer due to the resurgence of the popularity of the comedy trio, especially with kids seeing the shorts during afternoon children's programming. DeRita was concerned that kids would imitate the eye poke, and not do it correctly (The proper Stooge eye poke move is that the fingers would actually make contact slightly above the eyebrows, but appearing on film that the eyes were actually poked), thus causing real damage to the eyes. Moe and Larry agreed with DeRita, and the eye poke was retired from the act, making this scene a rarity in the later Stooge years. See more »

It's now the 60s and Phileas Fogg III great grandson of the original Fogg of Jules Verne's famous story makes a similar bet with a couple of crooks who have just
robbed the Bank of England and thrown suspicion on him. But instead of a
Cantinflas like man Friday he has three house servants who accompany him. Guess who those servants are?
There's a twist to this bet. Jay Sheffield has to do it all without spending a dime
or working for passage. No credit cards allowed. But as Moe says he's fortunate to be employing three of the biggest chiselers around. The Stooges are ingenious at finding ways to travel on the arm.
Like in the book and the Mike Todd extravaganza the super punctual Phileas
Fogg finds some romance in India and in this case it's stranded Joan Freeman
from Council Bluffs, Iowa.
My favorite bit is how the guys drive the Chinese Communists crazy by resisting
brainwashing techniques. Quite simple, they're too stupid for them to have
any effect. Shades of The Manchurian Candidate.
Another good piece is Curly Joe's attempts at Sumo wrestling. You have to see
Stooge fans should approve.
