Iggy's in the basement, mixing up the medicine. He was the psychedelic stooge.

They show six shorts at the Stoogefest. Five Curlies, one Shemp.

When Iggy was with the Stooges, they were billed as Larry, Moe and Hemp.

""Hopefully "Disorder in the Court" will be one of the shorts.""

that is on EVERY vhs tape of the stooges ever released (with the exception of the stooges collection that was put out by Sony i believe)...

one of my favorites is Men in Black..."calling doctor howard doctor fine doctor howard"...and since im an electrician in A Plumbing We Will Go, when Moe tells Curly to find some pipe for a leaking steamline, he grabs some conduit (electrical) and yanks it out of the fuse box. he says to Moe "its no wonder the plumbing in this house dont work, the pipes full of wires." Moe replies "Well yank 'em out of there and get that pipe over here." that leads to the black cook seeing the light bulb fill with water and the gas stove to spray water out of the burners. he looks at the camera and says "This house sure gone crazy!"

too bad its so far away...

My brothers and I are Stoogephiles from way back, and use Stooge sayings in daily conversation.

We identify other Stoogephiles by their recognition of terms and phrases like "Southern Comforter" (used to describe any dish that did not turn out), "Cotton!", "Where are the tools?", and "I resemble that remark!" to name but a few.

Men in Black was one of the shorts they showed.
It was still funny, and I've seen it five times.
There was no Disorder in the Court.
As usual there were five shorts with Curly and one with Shemp.
Great crowd on Saturday nite, the MC said attendance was just short of 1,000. The Redford is looking fantastic in its restored glory.

My wife watches all the CSI shows where they show (in detail, with sound) how a bullet or knife tears through the body. But she won't watch the Stooges because they hit each other.

Exactly, Dfd, it's a puzzle.

Others can't reconcile how highly educated, PBS-watching, civic-minded people can watch the barbaric Stooges.

We tolerate their unenlightened selves and reply, "Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk."

Generally speaking men find Curly Howard one of the greatest comedic geniuses of the 20th century, while women find the 3 Stooges not funny.

What was the name of the episode where they did the musical number (in College robes)...

B A Bay...
B E Bee...
B I Bicky Bye...
B O Bow...
Bicky Bye Bow B U Boo
Bicky Bye Bow Boo

That was my favorite...

Moe, Larry and Curly are gas station attendents who blow up an automobile with three foreign professors going to Mildew's Girl College. The Stooges change into the professors' clothes and impersonate them at the school. In class, the Stooges teach the girls how to "Swing the Alphabet," and follow up by teaching Mrs. Catsby how to play basketball, Stooge-style!

Swingin' the Alphabet's composer was Septimus Winner (1827 - 1902), and it was originally published in 1875 as The Spelling Bee. The [Charley] Chase family maid knew the song, and taught it to the children... and Charley brought it to the Three Stooges' VIOLENT IS THE WORD FOR CURLY. Thanks to film historian Richard Finegan for this outstanding discovery, published with additional detailed background in The Three Stooges Journal # 116 (Winter 2005).


Cast Members: Moe Howard (Moe) Larry Fine (Larry) Jerry Howard (Curly) Gladys Gale (Mrs. Sufferin Catsby, the Dean) Marjorie Dean (Mrs. Catsby's daughter) Bud Jamison (Gas station owner) Eddie Fetherstone (Foreign professor) John T. Murray (Foreign professor) Pat Gleason (Foreign professor)

Production Crew: Charley Chase (Producer) Hugh McCollum (Producer) Charley Chase (Director) Al Giebler (Story and Screenplay) Elwood Ullman (Story and Screenplay) Lucien Ballard (Photography) Arthur Seid (Film Editor)

Larry and Shemp are my favorites. Curly was funny to me when I was little, but now that I'm older just looking at Larry and his expressions cracks me up.

Friends and family would be upset with me because I'd enjoy watching and laughing to Stooges DVDs with my kids. They were younger and learned to love them as I still do. Funny tho....look at the violent crap today's kids watch. Both of my kids and I are college educated and nobody has been hit over the head with a hammer.

May the Stooges live forever!

Gistok, I could not agree more. Curly truly is a comedic genius.

Personally, Disorder in the Court is my favorite.

Stooge Trivia: Shemp is the original third stooge but left to pursue a solo career and was replaced by younger brother Curly.

Larry is my Stooge. Used to be Curly years ago, naturally. Moe is boss. Funny haircut! Shemp is a classic, played in a lot of Abbott and Costello's.

Q - "How will we recognize the Professor?"
A - "By his magnificent hair."

Moe - "Settle down Tarzan, you're in a courthouse, not the jungle." THWAP!

Joe Besser and Curley Joe DeRita were not Howard Brothers (Shemp, Moe, Jerry or "Curley").

Emil Sitka, a popular extra in later Stooge shorts (famous line: "Hold hands, you two lovebirds.") was to replace Larry after Larry's stroke & eventual death. But all he did was take some promotional stills.

Moe fell ill and the act died with him.

More Stooge trivia...

Curly was injured in an accidental self inflicted gunshot (circa age 15) wound to the leg, and never saw proper medical attention. So he walked funny in the movies to compensate for his limp.

Curly was married 4 times and died pretty much penniless at age 49 (1952). Larry spent much of his money at the race track. Only Moe amassed a sizeable amount of money.

Both Moe and Larry died the same year... 1972.

Brothers Shemp (born 1895, died 1955), Moe (born 1897, died 1972), and Curly (born 1903, died 1952), were Jewish and their real family name was not Howard, but Horowitz.

Larry Fine was also Jewish, and kept his last name.

One of my favorite Stooges short with Curly was the one when they were in the armed services and sank the admiral's battleship.

Another was one with Shemp where the boys were plumbers and connected a house's water pipes to the gas and electric lines...

Never liked Joe DeRita, he was too much of a whiner, and the only Stooge short that I liked that he appeared in was the flying saucer episode when he was kissed by that sexy female alien.

Woman at party: You act as if the Sword Of Damocles is hanging over your head...

Moe: Lady, you must be psychic!!

The plumbing "short" was with curly, they hooked the plumbing into the electrical conduits (some more expensive homes of the 20s and 30s were built with conduit like a commercial building) and water started coming out of the electrical boxes! There was a very early television set (about an 8" screen) in that short, the people were watching niagra falls, then water shot out of the Television set.
