Gas Station attendants Moe, Larry, and Curly are learning
all about the fine art of "Super-Service" when they blow
up an old Rolls carrying three foreign professors. The Stooges in
a need to make a quick getaway take off in an ice cream truck that
accidentally ended up with one of the professors trunks. When the
stooges need to put on some dry clothes, they look in the trunk only
to find three professor's garbs complete with cap & gown. Two
of the college campus big wigs spot the Stooges on the side of the
road and immediately assume that they are their three long-awaited
college professors on the way to the the infamous Mildew Girls College.
In class, the Stooges teach the girls how to "Swing the Alphabet",
and instruct them on the finer points of playing football. The Stooges
end up borrowing a basketball which ends up being a loaded bomb. It
seems in an effort to seek revenge, the professors fill the ball with
nitroglycerine hoping to blow the Stooges into oblivion. Needless
to say, this episode ends in a bang!
The "Swingin' the Alphabet" song was comercially released
on a 1960 album when Joe DeRita was the third Stooge. But you can
download it from the StoogeWorld Sounds Page.
