The Stooges run a tailor shop that is about to be repossessed by the Skin and Flint Finance Corporation. When the Boys hear about a big reward for fugitive bank robber 'Terry "Slippery Fingers" Hargan' (Harold Brauer), they think that catching him might end their financial woes. Hargan conveniently ducks into their shop and leaves a suit with a safe combination in its pocket. After his girlfriend (played by
Virginia Hunter) fails to retrieve the combination, Hargan returns with his henchmen, and a wild mêlée follows. The Stooges miss out on the reward but wind up with the crook's bankroll to pay off their debts.
* The title is a takeoff on "
Sing a Song of Sixpence," the classic English nursery rhyme.
* "Sing a Song of Six Pants" was remade in 1953 as "
Rip, Sew and Stitch", using ample recycled footage from the original.
* The name of the tailor shop is 'Pip Boys,' a parody of the auto service chain
Pep Boys. Also, the Stooges' names on the store window are written 'Lary ("sic"), Moe & Shemp,' paralleling the traditional listing of the Pep Boys' names as 'Manny, Moe & Jack.' (Note that Larry's name is, for some reason, spelled with only one "r".)
* Director Jules White "guest-stars" as the voice of the radio announcer.
* "Six Pants" is one of four Stooge shorts that fell into the
public domainafter the copyright lapsed in the 1960s (the other three being " Malice in the Palace", " Brideless Groom", and " Disorder in the Court"). As such, these four shorts frequently appear on inexpensive video or DVD compilations.
