TaglineThe Stooges cook up a brand new formula... for laughs!
Fuelin' Around is the 116th short film released by Columbia Pictures in 1949 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.
The Stooges are carpet layers working at the home of Professor Sneed (Emil Sitka) and his daughter (Christine McIntyre). Sneed is developing a rocket fuel in secret for the government. Anemian spy Captain Rork (Philip Van Zandt) watches the professor through his front window, with hopes of kidnapping him. The Anemians accidentally capture the Stooges instead, mistaking Larry for the professor. Trouble brews when the Stooges are required to quickly create some the fuel, and then write down the formula. It does not take long for the Anemians to capture the real Professor Sneed, along with his daughter, and throw them in jail until the formula is disclosed. Thanks to a shy prison guard (Jacques O'Mahoney) who cannot help but flirt with Sneed's daughter, the group make a quick exit.
