Three Little Pirates

Three Little Pirates

Three Little Pirates is a 1946 short subject directed by Edward Bernds starring American slapstick comedy team The Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Curly Howard). It is the 96th entry in the series released by Columbia Pictures starring the comedians, who released 190 shorts for the studio between 1934 and 1959.


In 1642, the Stooges are mariners aboard a refuse barge, marooned on the desolate Dead Man's Island. Their arrival attracts the attention of the island's governor, initially skeptical of their claims until their unmistakable sailor-like behavior confirms their profession. However, their fortunes quickly sour when Curly's harmless flirtation with the governor's betrothed, Rita, earns them the governor's ire.
