Stooges Wiki

False Alarms is the seventeenth short subject by Columbia Pictures starring the Three Stooges.


The stooges are lazy fireman who spend much of their time covering up there mistakes so they can impress their girlfriends by being in uniforms. Curly sneaks out of the firehouse while he is on duty and joins up with the girls. They want him to get the other two to come over, so Curly trips the nearest fire alarm. The fire truck leaves Moe and Larry behind because they have accidentally locked themselves in a janitor's closet. They then take the captain's car and try to beat the truck to the fire, in the process destroying the car.



The most memorable moment in this episode is the scene where Moe uses a phone to give Curly an eyepoke.
