The Three Stooges Show

AMC (ended 1959)




  • Season 0 Episode 2: Nertsery Rhymes

  • Even though Ted and the Stooges break the bed before the first musical number begins, it is somehow back in one piece when the number is over.

  • The first time Ted hits Curly in the forehead, he knocks him back into Moe and Larry and no sound effect is heard. But every other time Ted hits Curly's forehead, a sound effect is heard.

  • Season 0 Episode 3: Beer and Pretzels

  • In the first scene at the busy cafe, Johann Strauss' Blue Danube Waltz can be heard playing in the background.

  • Season 1 Episode 1: Woman Haters

  • As the train conductor walks off-camera after talking to Moe and Curly, he stumbles over something and almost falls down.

  • Goofs:

    Moe's jacket is buttoned in the part where the Stooges are fighting at the beginning, but in the next shot, his jacket is unbuttoned.

    When Larry is singing to Marjorie White, in one part when he sings "And when I'm finished with my grooming", Marjorie White almost sings it along with him when she wasn't supposed to.

    Right before the scene cuts to Curly doing his funny walk down the hallway, Marjorie White looks like she's about to say something.

    Larry broke his finger when tumbling out of the berth with the other Stooges.

    In the scene where Marjorie White is trying to hide Curly, she throws her hat up to the top berth, but it accidentally falls back down and she has to throw it up again.

    When the camera pans over to Moe and Curly as old men, you can see as shadow of a mircrophone in the background.

    At the end while Larry is singing "My life, my love, my all", you can see Moe elbow Curly to let him know that another hit is coming.

    You can see a scar on Larry's nose throughout the whole short.

  • Season 1 Episode 2: Punch Drunks

  • A freeze frame is used when we first see McGurn lying unconscious on the ceiling fan.

  • The song that Larry attempts to play on his violin when he first enters the restaurant is Johann Strauss' Blue Danube Waltz.

  • Goofs:

    In the beginning when the camera zooms into Moe while he's talking, his hands are empty, but in the next shot, he has a fork in his hand.

    You can hear the sound effect of one of the mugs punching Curly before it even happens.

    When Moe and Curly are helping Larry out of the water, Larry's violin is floating on the water, but in the next shot, it's in his hand.

    The man who fell off the back of the truck when Larry drove it off broke his arm.

    When Larry has a radio on his head and crashes into the wall, the radio is placed on his head differently than it was in the previous shot.

    At the end, we see various other bodies scattered across the ring next to Killer, but we never saw Curly knock them out.

    In the stock crowd footage used for the boxing scenes, two men in the audience can be seen flipping the bird by holding up their middle fingers. This happens relatively early on in the match.

    During the fight, when Larry is seen running down the street, a voice can be heard in the distance saying, "Run! All the way!" This happens twice in the film.

    Larry's running down the street is sped up for comic effect, with post-production sounds of rapid footsteps added. His frantic driving of the van, with its speakers booming out "Pop Goes the Weasel" (the same recording as on the radio earlier), is also sped up.

  • Season 1 Episode 3: Men In Black

  • Goofs:

    As the people are clearing out of the hallway as Moe and Larry rush them out, it cuts to the next shot, and all the people are gone suddenly.

    When Moe gets off the horse, he accidentally kicks Larry in the back.

    After the Stooges all say "My girl" at the same time, Larry looks at Moe, but in the next shot, he's looking at Curly.

    When Dr. Graves is ordering the Stooges to go to room 81, Larry is standing still, right beside Graves, then in the next shot, he's already halfway outside the door.

    When the janitor sees the Stooges rushing towards Dr. Graves' office, he kindly shatters the glass on the door to let the boys jump through. Moe and Larry jump through, but Curly instead begins to open the doorknob like his usual brainless self, then there is a sudden cut to the interior shot of the office and Curly is already inside the room.

    When Moe sees the doctor's stethoscope, he says "Gimme that s...that thing there." It sounds like he almost said "stethoscope" but remembered that he was actually just supposed to refer to it as "that thing".

  • Season 1 Episode 4: Three Little Pigskins

  • Goofs:

    When Pete says to the lady, "Relax, we're all going to it", he has his hand on her shoulder, but in the next shot, his hand is to his side and he's facing away from her.

    After Moe gets up from the floor after the passer-by punched him, something falls from his jacket.

    When the passer-by says to Curly, "I haven't got a dime, it's the Depression with me," his lips don't move during the beginning of that line.

    When Larry is supposed to say "okay" as Moe keeps barking him orders, he almost says "yeah" at first.

    After Curly says, "No I shoveled it" to the lady, the lady is looking at him with a mean face, but she's smiling in the next shot.

    A sudden cut to Moe saying, "Boy, did I pick myself a double order of skunk."

    When the boys are spraying the girls with seltzer waters, Phyllis Crane just stands there and takes it, but then she realizes she's supposed to be laughing like the other girls.

    When the girls are blindfolding the Stooges, Moe says "Wait a minute n..." then his line is cut off in the cut to the next shot.

    When the bad guy punched Larry in the jaw, Larry chipped a tooth.

    Before Moe gets punched out by Joe Stacks, we see Moe with a dazed look on his face as if Stacks did something to him prior to the punch, but we don't see it.

    Curly broke his leg traveling down the dumbwater.

    After Curly and Larry tackle the referee, Larry says "How's that Moe?" but his lips aren't moving.

    When the referee turns to Moe and asks "Oh, he did eh?" if you notice, Larry has his helmet off, but in the next shot, Larry's helmet is on.

    A sloppy cut to Moe and Curly running with their arms together, with Larry behind them.

    When the Stooges huddle by themselves, Moe is bent over with his feet on the ground, but when the camera shows a closer shot of the boys, Moe's knees are on the ground, then when it goes back to the original shot, Moe's feet are on the ground again.

    After the aforementioned huddle, the boys get in position for the hike and the referee is standing behind them, but he's not anywhere near the boys in the next shot. You can see strings in the back of the boys' pants when their being shot in the behind.

    At the beginning of the football game when the Stooges are passing the ball to each other over and over, at one part, Larry throws the ball towards Curly and he's about to catch it, then the camera cuts to the next shot and the ball goes to Moe all of a sudden

  • Curly's number is simply a ? mark.

  • Moe's number is H2O2

  • Larry's number is 1/2

  • Season 2 Episode 1: Horses' Collars

  • Accoding to its sign, Double Deal's Five D Delight is a saloon that boasts Dice, Dames, Dancing, Drinking, and Dunking.

  • The photograph of Mrs. Zeke is a picture of actress Tiny Jones, who would appear with the Stooges the following year in Disorder in the Court.

  • Goofs:

    When the Stooges are looking at the picture of the detective's wife, Curly has a pipe in his right hand, but in the next shot it's in his left hand.

    Although Curly only shoves Hyden Zeke into the wall, Zeke somehow gets a black eye. Not only that, but a bandage appears on his face just moments after he reapproaches Curly, even though we never saw him put it on. After Decker shoots the two cowboys who won't pay for their drinks, the bartender goes to a chalk board that says "Decker: 115 - Opponents: 0" then he erases the "5" in 115 and puts in a 7 making it 117. However, a while later in the film when the boys asks the bartender for drink, the camera shows the bartender and behind him, you'll notice on the chalkboard, the 117 is back to 115.

    When Curly asks for the bottle, the bartender places the bottle next to Curly, but in the next shot it's next to Moe.

    When the camera shows a close-up of Decker as the Stooges are dusting each other off, he is looking at the boys, but in the next shot, he's looking at Lobo.

    When the Stooges bow down to Nell, Moe bops Curly on the head, then it suddenly cuts to Larry holding his face in disgust, and Moe looking at him with a mean look as if he hit him. Curly and Moe are staring at the coin that Decker shot a hole through, then it cuts to the next shot and Curly and Moe are suddenly looking at Decker. When Moe asks "Got a $5 gold piece?" Curly's shirt is unbuttoned, but it's buttoned in the next shot.

    When Nelle is talking to the boys, she says "If you gentlemen don't get that I O U for me, I'll lose my ranch and..." then it cuts to Larry trying to comfort her and she it wiping her tears with a hanky, which she did not have in the shot before.

    After Larry says, "Don't let 'em go to your head" to Curly, Moe looks at Larry, then in the next shot, he's suddenly looking at Decker.

    You can see the strings holding Moe and Larry up when their being hung.

    When the ropes that Larry and Moe are tied to break, in the background you can see Decker with a drum busted over his head, yet no explanation of how that happened.

    After Decker says "Theives, huh?", you can hear an echo of that line.

    In between Curly's line "Did ya hear that tumbler click?" and Moe's response "Good work", there is a strange mute in the soundtrack.

    When Moe says "Take it easy, Butterfingers" and pokes Curly in the eyes, it looks like he really pokes his fingers into Curly's eyes as opposed to poking his eyebrows like it's normally done, yet Curly showed no signs of pain.

    When the Stooges are put up on the table to be hanged, the ropes hang off to the left of the scene. Then the camera shows Lobo looking over his right shoulder as he ties the ends of the ropes to the banister of the staircase which is to the right. Then we go back to the Stooges and the ropes are hanging off to the left. Then a little later when the camera shows a close-up of the banister breaking, it is again to the right.

  • When Curly mistakes a radio for a safe, the radio announcer mentions "You're listening to WGN". WGN is a real radio station (720 AM) as well as a television station (Channel 9) in Chicago. In reality, stations like that only traveled for hundreds of miles and could not be picked up in California.

  • Season 2 Episode 2: Restless Knights

  • After Moe and Larry hit the Queen with their wooden clubs, they both drop their broken clubs. In the next shot of Moe and Larry, they are both suddenly holding clubs again.

  • After the Stooges are defeated by the swordsmen, their swords are lying discarded on the ground. When Curly turns around to face the last soldier, the swords have disappeared.

  • As the Stooges' father slaps all three of them for their misbehavior, look closely, and you will find the father put Larry's candle out at the same time.
