“Every time I hear that Weasel tune, something POPS inside of me!”
In Punch Drunks, Moe is a struggling boxing manager having lunch with several associates who are angry at him for their low payment and threatening to quit on him. He notices that their shy waiter (Curly) goes into a violent fugue whenever he hears the song “Pop Goes the Weasel,” which is the case when he knocks out three associates and later his boss. Moe also takes notice of a fiddler (Larry) who happens to be playing the potent tune at the restaurant and quickly recruits the two unsuspecting cohorts and preps them for the boxing world. With Larry playing “Pop Goes the Weasel” at every boxing match, Curly becomes the number-one contender for the heavyweight championship.
All goes well until the night of the highly anticipated World Championship match with Killer Kilduff (Al Hill). Only a few moments into the first round, Kilduff plants a left hook at Curly, sending him into the crowd, landing on Larry and crushing his violin. Frantic, Larry scurries the streets, looking for anything that is playing “Pop Goes the Weasel,” while Curly is being battered by the boxer.
Larry manages to come across a politician’s campaign truck blaring the tune from its speakers and “race-drives” it to the arena, crashing through a side wall. Curly is just about ready to throw in the towel until he hears “Pop Goes the Weasel.” The wobbly boxer comes to his feet with renewed energy, and knocks out Kilduff in a matter of seconds, winning the fight. The song continues, however, and as they celebrate in the ring, Curly knocks out Larry and Moe and begins to advance on the camera as the short ends.
