Many people tend to forget that the Stooges had claim to giving Lucille Ball her first shot at fame. One of the actress's first roles was the 1934 film, Three Little Pigskins.
Love at First Bite was filmed August 18-22, 1948, but not released until May 1950. It was partially remade in 1958 as Fifi Blows Her Top, using minimal stock footage.

Love at First Bite is the 123rd short film released by Columbia Pictures in 1950 starring American slapstick comedy team The Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Shemp Howard).
