  • This thread is for newbies with a post count of less than 10 to ask a question about the Stooges. In case the questions begin to pile up the person answering them should quote the question in their reply.

  • My dad and sisters swear this Stooges film they saw was the funniest thing ever, but I have never been able to find it. All they can tell is that in it the Stooges dress up in a horse costume. I can't imagine there are too many instances of that, but, thanks for your help ahead of time!

  • There are at least two shorts I can think of where two of the Stooges wore a horse costume - Horsing Around (1957) and Three Little Twirps (1943).

  •  But damn, there's something seriously wrong if they thought Horsing Around was the funniest thing ever. Let's pray for their sake that it was Three Little Twirps.

    If you check our Calendar and the Events and TV board, lewis, you'll find the upcoming appearances of the Stooges on TV that we know about.  They do appear on some local stations, but we don't usually know in advance what they airing.

    There is also a thread about Spike TV obtaining the Stooges.

  • I saw something on Ebay I have never seen before.  40 DVDs containing all 190 shorts of the Stooges.  The auction recently ended, but you can still view the item number: 6376637905.

    If these are black market, somebody sure went to a lot of trouble to make them look professional.  Has anyone ever heard of this collection?  I cannot find it on any other source (Amazon, Yahoo, etc.).  I discovered this item as a "Buy it Now!" only a couple days ago and put it on my watch list. It expired yesterday (sold for $219). I kind of wish I had purchased it. It sounds like a dream collection.

    Anyone know anything more about this?

    Thanks,
    Stooge77

    Take your pick - there's far too many to try to list them all here.  Can you give us any information that is more specific to a particular episode?

  • I can't remember the name of the short where the stooges are making bootleg beer. For some reason the image of a bathtub filled with homebrewed beer is burnt into my memory.
    Can anyone help me here?
    Thanks a lot!

  • Thanks a lot, Dunrobin! But after a quick check it looks like it's still not available on DVD. I hesitate to buy anything on VHS these days. After 5 or 10 years the tapes start to lose their data or develop mold-especially in the humid climate I live in. Eventually it'll be out.

  • I can tell you that Beer Barrell Polecats is not worth getting a VHS tape of. In fact it is one of the worst shorts ever. If I were you I'd wait until it comes out on DVD, then maybe they will have some shorts worth purchasing (plus it wouldn't be on an antiquated medium either).

  • "Beer Barrel Polecats" had a pretty good start, but once the stooges were in prison, it was mostly re-used footage, which weakened the short.

    Thanks, Shemps#1. I would like to get it on DVD. I may be dead by the time Columbia gets around to releasing it at the current rate. I can't get the beer in the bathtub out of my mind. Good for screen captures too!

    Emphasis on the first "whooo", champ.

  • First off, don't call me "champ": it's patronizing. Are we clear, sport?

    Second, that's improper word usage, as you can see by this handy definition of the word:

    an·nounce   
    v. an·nounced, an·nounc·ing, an·nounc·es
    v. tr.

       1. To make known publicly.
       2. To proclaim the presence or arrival of: announce a caller.
       3. To provide an indication of beforehand; foretell: The invention of the microchip announced a new generation of computers.
       4. To serve as an announcer for: announce a football game on TV.


    v. intr.

       1. To declare one's candidacy: was declared the front-runner even before she announced.
       2. To serve as an announcer.

    Now you tell me where emphasis on the first "whoo" would fall into the definition of announce.
