Three Arabian Nuts is a 1951 short subject directed by Edward Bernds starring American slapstick comedy team The Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Shemp Howard). It is the 129th entry in the series released by Columbia Pictures starring the comedians, who released 190 shorts for the studio between 1934 and 1959.


The Stooges, employed as warehouse workers at the Superior Warehouse and Storage Company, are tasked with delivering Arabian antiques to client John Bradley.

Upon cleaning the lamp, a djinni materializes, surprising Shemp.
