Loose Loot is the 146th 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 are trying to obtain their inheritance from their late uncle. Unfortunately, it has been swiped by con man Icabod Slipp (Kenneth MacDonald). The trio track Slipp down at the Circle Follies Theatre, and duke it out.

Production notes[edit]

The first half of Loose Loot consists of footage recycled from Hold That Lion!.[1]

Icabod Slipp's name appears on the door as "I. Slipp." This is a semantic parody on the Long Island town of Islip, New York.[2]
