  • The Stooges are employed as secret agents to protect a scientist developing high powered rocket fuel.

    7.2
    Yet another Stooges short with Joe Palma filling in for a deceased Shemp. The only thing that keeps this one from being horrible is that it salvages some great aspects and gags from the original short "Fuelin Around". The new beginning is only mildly amusing. Gene Roth's combination globe and liquor cabinet is a stroke of genius. The scenes where the secretaries quarrel with Moe and Larry is also very funny, espcially when Connie Cezon puts Moe's hand in a stapler. Sadly, the new footage goes downhill from there. The double for Shemp is very obvious and detracts from the humor. Mainly worth it for stock footage parts.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Freeze frames of the General are used in the shots of him watching the Stooges give Rork the formula for the rocket fuel.

    • Although the Stooges lock Rork in a trunk and leave him there as they escape, he is seen shooting at them at the end of the film. Of course, it should be noted that the ending scenes are stock footage from Fuelin' Around (1949).

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Moe: We gotta make them think we're really mixing rocket fuel or they'll shoot us!

    • (Larry and Moe kiss the Uranian officers.)
      Uranian officer: She said make yourself at home, not obnoxious!
      Larry: Oh, quite kiddin', toots! You know you loved it!

    • Moe: Wait a minute, you ignoramuses, if they find out we're undercover men they'll go back and grab the real professor. We gotta make them think we're really mixing rocket fuel or they'll shoot us.

    • (The Stooges enter the Uranian command office.)
      Moe: Operator number 5!
      Larry: 6 and 7/8!
      Uranian officer: Good, I've been expecting you. Make yourselves at home.
      Moe: Thank you, we will.
      (The Stooges grab the ladies and kiss them.)

    • President: You and Cluttz must visit this Professor Sneed. Understand?
      Rork: Yes, Excellency. I will make the necessary preparations.
      (Thay shake hands and Rork leaves.)
      President: I will make necessary preparations.
      (The President opens a globe and takes out a bottle of alcohol. He drinks some.)
      The President: By golly, that's good! Tastes like rotten eggs!

    • (Captain Rork presents the Stooges with their last meal.)
      Rork: Eat hearty! Pigs feet smothered in lubricating oil. Raw potatoes boiled in pure varnish. And headcheese garnished with nails. Rusty nails!

    • Uranian officer: You will work undercover.
      Moe: Yes, yes. We will work under covers.
      Uranian officer: Neither he nor anyone else must know who you are. You will go to his new house and pretend you are carpet layers.
      Larry: Wait a minute! I can't lay carpets.
      Uranian officer: Why not?
      Larry: I'm not that rugged.

    • (One of the Uranian officers eyes Moe angrily after he kisses her.)
      Uranian officer: Ew! What a kisser!
      Moe: Oh-ho. Glad you appreciate it!
