Nertsery Rhymes is a 1933 American Pre-Code short film starring "Ted Healy and His Stooges", a musical comedy released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Some footage was from the unfinished MGM musical The March of Time (1930), which was originally to feature Healy and the Three Stooges. This was one of two MGM Stooge shorts filmed utilized the then-experimental two-strip Technicolor process. This process would be used again in Hello Pop! (1933) featuring Ted Healy and His Stooges, and Roast Beef and Movies (1934) featuring just Curly. The use of color was predicated by the decision to recycle the "Moon Ballet" sequence from the unreleased color MGM feature The March of Time.[1]

The Stooges are children and Ted Healy is the father. Unable to sleep, the Stooges ask Healy to tell them a bedtime story. He proceeds to tell them of the "Ride of Paul Revere" as well as the "The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe". Briefly veering away from the slapstick, there are two musical interludes pertaining to the stories.
