Horsing Around

Horsing Around

Horsing Around is a 1957 short subject directed by Jules White starring American slapstick comedy team The Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Joe Besser). It is the 180th entry in the series released by Columbia Pictures starring the comedians, who released 190 shorts for the studio between 1934 and 1959.


Joe comes across a distressing article in the local newspaper detailing the plight of Schnapps, a circus horse facing potential euthanasia due to injury. However, Moe and Larry urge Joe to redirect his attention to their sister Birdie, whose predicament they deem more pressing. Unbeknownst to them, Birdie is actually the reincarnation of a horse in pursuit of her lost mate, revealed during a breakfast revelation.
