Blunder Boys is the 166th short film released by Columbia Pictures in 1955 starring American slapstick comedy team The Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Shemp Howard). The comedians released 190 short films for the studio between 1934 and 1959.
After serving in the army, the stooges decide to go to college and major in criminology. Graduating with the lowest possible honors, the boys join the police force and are assigned to search for a bandit called the Eel (Benny Rubin) who is going to rob the Biltless Hotel. They go to the hotel, but fail to catch the criminal or retrieve the money he stole. As a result, they are booted off the force and the three end up as ditch diggers.
