Blunder Boys was the last Stooge film featuring Shemp Howard that was not a remake. In addition, it would also be the last film released during his lifetime; Howard died of a heart attack 19 days after its release. Filming was completed on January 24–26, 1955.
The premise of Blunder Boys is a parody of the television series Dragnet. The ending was also a parody of the company that ran Dragnet, (Mark VII Limited), as Moe stamps the logo, “VII 1/2 The End” on Larry’s head similar to how it’s done in the logo.
