They are three good-hearted fools who have a knack for screwing up even the simplest task. A typical episode of The Three Stooges Show includes Moe slapping Larry, several eye pokes, head conks, and the ever possible pie fight. Destruction seems to follow the Stooges around!

Why It Rocks

  1. Their famous slapstick humor, Such as poking them in the eyes and knocking them on the head.
  2. They set the standard and pioneered slapstick humor.
  3. Memorable episodes, such as
    • Men in Black
    • They Stooge to Conga
    • Boobs in Arms
    • You Nazty Spy!
    • Violent is the Word for Curly
    • Grips, Grunts, and Groans
    • Dizzy Doctors
    • We Want Our Mummy
    • A Plumbing We Will Go
    • Nutty but Nice
    • Three Little Beers
    • Movie Maniacs
    • Three Little Pigskins
  4. It spawned 6 movies and a animated show since it had popularity again in the late 50s when it was aired on syndication.
  5. Funny, memorable moments from The Pastry Fight, Scrambled Brains, and Dizzy Detectives.
  6. It featured a lot of guests before they had fame.
    • "Three Little Pigskins" features Lucille Ball, Who would later become famous in I Love Lucy.
    • The movie, "The Outlaws is Coming" features Adam West, Who would later become famous in Batman as The character of the same name and Family Guy as Mayor Adam West until his death in 2017.

Bad Qualities

  1. The short films went downhill in the late 50s, Since Shemp Howard died of a heart attack in 1955 and was replaced by Joe Besser, then later replaced by Curly Joe DeRita after the series. Which later became known as the "Fake Shemp".
  2. The Robonic Stooges was weak and had little to do with the original series.
  3. The 2012 film based on them was weak.
  4. During success in the late 50s and 60s, The movies were not very good as the original series.


4 short films from Columbia are in the public domain due to copyright renew failure.
