  • Eddie Cantor appeared with the Three Stooges, Moe, Larry & Shemp in 1955 but it is missing from this list.

  • TV and Radio Guest Appearances are not part of the main Filmography, and are indexed separately.

  • Speaking of Eddie Cantor, the first place I read about the Stooges being on his show was in the Jeffrey Forrester book "The Stooge Chronicles" where it stated they appeared on "The Eddie Cantor Comedy Theatre" and it was "broadcast in color." It also said this was a syndicated series as opposed to airing on a network. Yet the clips I have seen are black and white. Could the author have been mistaken that it was in color?

    From what it sounds like, at the time of the broadcast, the only way to preserve television recordings was through the kinescope process, which only recorded in black-and-white. Plus, I don't think that many people had color televisions back then anyway.

  • Yes, but since it was a syndicated series, wouldn't it have been filmed in advance? (Given the era and technology of the time.) Kinescopes would have been used for live network broadcasts.

  • CANTOR was filmed in color.  What defunct syndicator and production company ZIV did with those prints is unknown and they're assumed long-gone.  The Cantor Estate's archives, managed by his grandson Brian Gari, has only B&W prints which have been the source of licensed footage circulated on DVD and some TV specials.
