Cookoo Cavaliers is the 51st short film released by Columbia Pictures in 1940 starring American slapstick comedy team The Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Curly Howard). The comedians released 190 short films for the studio between 1934 and 1959.
The Stooges are unsuccessful fish salesmen. After becoming fed up with it all, they decide go into the saloon business but accidentally purchase a salon in the sleepy village of Cucaracha, Mexico. Undaunted, the trio try their hand at giving a customer (Dorothy Appleby) a mud pack using, natural, real mud. After chiseling the cement off her face, the boys scalp three other Mexican beauties before having their bottoms shot full of holes.
The "cookoo" in the title is often misspelled as "cuckoo."
