LAFF HOUR offered shorts from throughout the 1932-1956 Columbia short subject library. Theatres were given the opportunity to build their own program. Available comedies included The Three Stooges, Andy Clyde, Eddie Quillan and Wally Vernon, Joe Besser, Vera Vague, Hugh Herbert, Roscoe Karns, El Brendel, Schilling and Lane, Harry Von Zell, Buster Keaton, Tom Kennedy, Billy Gilbert, Joe DeRita, Sterling Holloway, Leon Errol, Walter Catlett, Billie Burke, George Givot, Cliff Nazarro, and others.

While the Stooges do appear on the 1-sheet provided for the compilation, there was no guarantee that a Stooge comedy would actually screen in LAFF HOUR. Each theatre's program differed. Also, although Shemp is featured on the 1-sheet, it was possible that a Curly short could be on the bill.

The only LAFF HOUR film footage created by Columbia was a special title leader, and a trailer.

The Stooges are electricians who are fired after messing up a job. They decide to go away for a vacation and check into Doc Mallard's Rest Home and Clinic. It's not long before they discover that Doc Mallard is a quack, and his clinic is designed to gyp patients of their money. The boys try to escape, and Mallard's cure for that is to stop them by any means necessary.
