  • This was the last original Stooge short written by Clyde Bruckman. His name would appear in future productions, however, when reworked films featured stories which Bruckman contributed to.
  • Shemp suffered a mild stroke less than two weeks after the filming for Goof on the Roof had been completed. He recovered from it quickly enough by the time production commenced in April 1953 on the Stooges’ next film, Musty Musketeers.

Production Notes

  • Goof on the Roof was filmed on November 17–19, 1952.
  • It is a remake of 1949’s Let Down Your Aerial with Wally Vernon and Eddie Quillan and 1930’s Hog Wild with Laurel & Hardy.
