Goof on the Roof is the 152nd short film released by Columbia Pictures in 1953 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 receive news that their roommate and friend Bill (Frank Mitchell) is getting married. They will soon be moving out of the house so that Bill's new lover can move in. As a favor of gratitude, the Stooges decide to install Bill's brand new television antenna. The project goes into chaos, however, when they eventually destroy the home.
When Bill's new wife (Maxine Gates) comes home to see the mess, all hell breaks loose, and Bill is single as quickly as he had gotten married. In a fit of anger, Bill takes out his aggression on his roommates, and life as they knew it is once again restored.
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 thee Stooges' next film, Musty Musketeers.
