Have Rocket, Will Travel was the first starring feature film with The Three Stooges. By this time, the trio consisted of Moe Howard, Larry Fine, and Curly Joe DeRita. Released by Columbia Pictures, the feature was produced to capitalize on the comedy trio's 1959 resurgence in popularity. Contents.

The Stooges are janitors working at a space center who accidentally blast off to Venus. They encounter a talking unicorn, a giant fire breathing tarantula, and an alien computer who has destroyed all human life on the planet and creates three evil twins of the Stooges. When the boys return home triumphant, they are given a hero's welcome. [edit] Space travel craze

The space travel theme of Have Rocket, Will Travel was quite prevalent in the late 1950s. The Stooges had already filmed several shorts for Columbia revolving around this theme (Space Ship Sappy, Outer Space Jitters, Flying Saucer Daffy). They followed up with yet another space entry in 1962 for The Three Stooges in Orbit. [edit]
