I wonder also just who owned The Three Stooges name at that time. I don't think C3 Productions was even in business yet then. If I were to guess, I would say it was owned by Columbia/Screen Gems at that time and perhaps if they were even aware of this record at the time, may have figured it just wasn't worth suing over.
Can anybody provide some additional details about these two films in the database?

The first one lists Chico Marx as a cast member, and the second lists the Marx Brothers and the Ritz Brothers as well as the Stooges. This seems pretty notable. Is it known if they're in any scenes with the other brothers?
If you scroll down, you'll see a listing of episodes for George Jessel and Norma Talmadge's show 30 Minutes in Hollywood and the 4th episode features Ted Healy's "Super Stooges." If I had to guess, the Stooges in this are probably Mousie Garner, Dick Hakins, and Sammy Wolfe, as the program premiered on October 10, 1937 and ended on July 3, 1938, meaning it probably aired around the time of those GOOD NEWS programs. I know it's not technically the Stooges, but maybe it could be listed under miscellaneous appearances?
Paul really gives Ted Healy the business.
According to Wikipedia, Fox made the decision. With Tashlin, the budget was $750,000; with Lang, 3.5 million. My guess is the studio decided to go in a different direction overall with both change of directors AND budgets. Who knows, maybe this was initially more Stooge oriented, I'll have to do more research.
(If I recall correctly, he doesn't get hit with pies in any other Stooges short.)
... look at the way Columbia worked Curly like a workhorse after his stroke
I know they had a busy calendar for personal appearances, and their filming kept them busy,
There's a racy joke with the punchline, "Make bigger circles!"
The Dean at my University is a huge Stooges fan. He also comes from Chicago. I mentioned to him that Gary Deeb had written an article on Curly Howard for one of the Chicago newspapers back in the 1980s. I believe that the article appeared in one of the Three Stooges Journals as well. Does anyone know how I can get a copy of the article? I like to keep my Dean happy.
I also lean heavily towards it not being Moe Howard.
One thing that might change my mind is if Moe ever made any reference to having worked with John Bunny on Film! As Mr. Bunny was considered to be the first cinematic star (He was also the first to be the cover story of a major magazine directly as a result of his death, which occurred in 1915!), I highly doubt that Moe wouldn't have referenced this, at some point!
Supposedly the boy with the duster in this scene from 1911's "Little Nemo" is none other than Moe Howard. I myself have doubts, but if this indeed Moe than it can be added to the ThreeStooges.net database for ol' Moses.
Were there any gags used in the live-action wraparounds on The New 3 Stooges 1965 series which were NEVER used in any of their Columbia shorts?
a short where the Stooges were having pancakes; they lifted the pancakes with forks, and reacted to the unusual shapes of the pancakes; one of the pancakes was shaped like a star of David.
