I have a memory of one of the shorts that I'm trying to identify. It was set in a Wild West or perhaps a farm setting. Anyway, the bad guys catch the boys and to teach them a lesson they suspend them by their necks through holes in the floor (this might have been in a barn, from a raised deck). Their heads are stuck above and their bodies are bouncing up and down, the really weird part is that their necks are stretching. I think it was a Curly episode.
The gal who used to live on my street remembers this one too, so I don't think I'm dreaming it up. I have seen another "neck stretching" one, but it was just Shemp. The one I'm thinking of had all three of them.
This has been bugging me for years, because I haven't seen that one for decades!
