    * * * * THE THREE STOOGES IN HISTORY DVD release will contain the following side-
    splitting short films from the masters of slapstick comedy:

    Squareheads of the Round Table (1948)
    Moe, Larry and Shemp are three royal troubadours who are enlisted by Cedric the Blacksmith to
    win the heart of Princess Elaine who is set to marry the Black Prince with a serenade. But their
    plan hits a sour note when the Stooges and Cedric are arrested and sentenced to death. *
    *
    I'm a Monkey's Uncle (1948)
    Cavemen Larry, Moe and Shemp find themselves in an un-bear-able situation when they steal
    the girlfriends of nearby cavemen, who declare war in retaliation. The Stooges fight back with an
    arsenal of inventive weapons, proving animals aren't the only things that are wild. *
    *
    Restless Knights (1935)
    Almost immediately after the queen hires Larry, Moe and Curly to be her bodyguards, she is
    abducted, which provides Prince Boris with the perfect opportunity to be rid of them once and
    for all. Facing execution, the Stooges fight for their lives and wind up en garde for a regal
    victory.
    *
    Matri-phony (1942)
    It's a bad case of Stoogeus Interruptus when potters Mohicus, Larrycus and Curlycue let Diana
    seek refuge from Emperor Octopus Grabus in their shop. They're arrested, but when Curlycue
    disguises himself as Diana, the Emperor's passion is unlocked and they find themselves on the
    run from jail and the altar. *
    *
    Fiddlers Three (1948)
    The Stooges can be a royal pain in the -- well, you know -- but sometimes they're the butts of the
    joke. Moeth, Larryeth and Shempeth are royal fiddlers who become the targets of an evil
    magician when they try to rescue their noble ruler's daughter, whom the magician has abducted.

    I have a suggestion for Columbia: Instead of hyping "special features" that' are not really "special features", how about putting like 10 short films on there instead of a skimpy 5?!!! These shorts run only about 15 minutes each!!!

    At least they're returning to shorts again and not just sticking us with lame Curly Joe features. I'm behind on three of the Stooges releases because of that.
