Fuelin’ Around Trivia

  • This is the first Stooge film since Booby Dupes (1945) to satirize a political enemy
  • The quest for the super rocket fuel is one weapon-generation after the Televanian -9 submarine from Three Little Sew and Sews (1939). It precedes The Stooges’ sci-fi/outer space films by almost a decade. Colonel Clutz, who helped captured Snead, chastises Rork for it later
  • This was remade as Hot Stuff (1956) using available stock footage
