Creeps is the 168th short film released by Columbia Pictures in 1956 starring American slapstick comedy team The Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Shemp Howard). The comedians released 190 short films for the studio between 1934 and 1959.
The Stooges tell their three sons (also the Stooges) about the time they had jobs as moving men assigned to the haunted Smorgasbord Castle. All goes well until a clanking suit of armor inhabited by the ghost of Sir Tom (voiced by Phil Arnold) instructs the Stooges to leave him be. Shemp, Larry and Moe all take turns trying to move Tom but he spooks the Stooges away.
Creeps is a remake of 1949's The Ghost Talks using ample stock footage from the original film. The new footage, filmed on May 16, 1955, includes the babies (also the Stooges) and a torture room scene where Moe's trousers are sliced off.
In the scene when Sir Tom is telling the Stooges his story, there is a brief shot added where the boys are smoking; in the next shot (a recycled clip), the boys are not smoking.
