Noone ever mentions the long-term continuity goofs here! Like:
In the Stooges' 1st fill-um, "Soup To Nuts" there are 4 of them (plus a boss man and a girl) - one with bangs, one with wild wavy hair, one with greasy wild straight hair and another who is... well, different. Then in "Nertzery Rhymes" the Stooges' fourth member is gone (along w/boss & gal) and the 3rd one has gotten much heftier and has almost no hair. Get this, too: all have normal skin tones, but in "Soup" previously, and later in "Plane Nuts" and most everything else up to "Snow White and the 3 Stooges" they all appear to be ashen-gray -- and everything and everyone around them is some bland shade of gray also! ("Snow White" is strange title to pick for the return of color, eh?) Still later, in "Hold That Lion" there are 4 again, including the fat one and the greasy ugly one, but almost immediately after, they're back down to 3 again, with the fat one absent.
That's not even the end of it, though! Abruptly, around the time of "Space Ship Sappy" or so the third one has gotten (sort of) fat and bald again, but has a different look and radically altered personality -- smarter but still juvenile in a sassy, irritating way. That doesn't last long, though -- by the time of "Have Rocket, Will Travel", he's ballooned up bigger than ever, and his IQ has dropped massively, but again there's a change; he's not so much demented as retarded (pardon the un-PC term). Finally, these three stop changing personality-wise, but weirdest of all, they first go from gray to pink/peach in their skin tones again, and finally -- they become more colorful, flat-looking, and have black outlines! (I could swear I saw them growing extended metal limbs once around this time, but I think my imagination ran away with me at that point!
PS: Oh, yeah, one last thing: Whenever you see the Stooges in anything, try to check the date it was released. This will really blow your mind, but it's true... in their 1930s films they all look very young, in the 40s they look a little older, and so on. They continue to look older and move more slowly through the 50s, 60s, etc... until those very last appearances I mentioned, in which their ages are pretty much indeterminable.
Haven't seen them in anything since the 70s that I can think of (apart from weird brief cameos on such odd shows as Celebrity Deathmatch, SCTV, Family Guy, Carol Burnett Show, and like that). Did they retire? I heard something about a recent feature film and an upcoming new two-reeler, but haven't managed to catch either one...
