Punch Drunks is the second short subject released by Columbia featuring The Three Stooges. It was released in 1934 and features Moe Howard, Larry Fine, and Curly Howard.


Boxing manager Moe takes an interest in waiter Curley after he goes ballistic during fiddler Larry's rendition of "Pop Goes the Weasel."

Curley, given the name "K.O. Stradivarius" quickly rises to fame and fights the champion, Killer Kilduff. During the fight, Larry's fiddle is broken, so he leaves and finds a radio playing "Pop Goes the Weasel." However, the song soon ended and Larry found a campaign truck playing the tune and crashes it into the building. This allows Curley to win the World Championship.
