Whoops, I'm an Indian! is the 18th short subject starring American slapstick comedy team the Three Stooges. The trio made a total of 190 shorts for Columbia Pictures between 1934 and 1959.

Plot[edit]

The Stooges are crooked gamblers in the Old Western town of Lobo City. Eventually, they are caught cheating the residents (including an evil tough woodcutter named Pierre) of a frontier town when Larry hid a horseshoe magnet inside his shoe. They are discovered and must escape into the woods. Now as fugitives, the Stooges have to elude the sheriff, the Stooges hunt, fish, and disguise themselves as Indians.

However, things start to go wrong when Pierre takes a liking to Curly, who is disguised as an Indian squaw. The two soon get married. Several minutes later, Curly's wig slips off and the trio has to make another run for it. They find what they believe to be a safe place to hide, only to find that they lock themselves right into the Lobo City Jail.

Production notes[edit]

Whoops, I'm an Indian! was filmed on June 2–6, 1936.[2] The high-speed canoe footage was reused for the closing of 1937's Back to the Woods.[1]
