Gypped in the Penthouse is the 161st short subject starring American slapstick comedy team the Three Stooges. The trio made a total of 190 shorts for Columbia Pictures between 1934 and 1959.
Over the course of their 24 years at Columbia Pictures, the Stooges would occasionally be cast as separate characters. This course of action always worked against the team; author Jon Solomon concluded "when the writing divides them, they lose their comic dynamic." In addition to this split occurring in Gypped in the Penthouse
, the trio also played separate characters in Rockin' in the Rockies
, Cuckoo on a Choo Choo
, Flying Saucer Daffy
, Sweet and Hot
, He Cooked His Goose
, and its remake Triple Crossed
