Anyone familiar with their antics knows that the Three Stooges were a “slapstick” trio in the most literal sense.
They began shooting their short motion pictures at Columbia Pictures in 1934.
Their work in vaudeville had ended and they were free of previous unfair contracts with the abusive and alcoholic Ted Healy. The Columbia Pictures contract was not that much better, but the Stooges found much fame later when those short motion pictures were revived on television in the 1950s. Their slapstick comedy still attracts several viewers on YouTube where Curly’s “Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk” and “I’m a victim of “soicumstance” will live on forever. The genius of the Three Stooges was that pretty much everyone has a bit of “stooge” in them. I know about how several more short motion pictures they could have made had current Heating, Ventilation, and A/C systems been widespread at that time. They could be a trio of bumbling Heating, Ventilation, and A/C servicemans hired by someone of high social sitting to “repair” an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C program in a big house. Curly and Larry would accidentally cut a refrigerant line spraying freon into Moe’s face. In real life, this would be quite dangerous to wanna-be DIY Heating, Ventilation, and A/C repairmen. In the motion pictures, Moe would opportunity up a pie and throw it at the other multiple, missing them but hitting the snobbish homeowners who just entered the room to check on “the boys”, a full-blown pie confrontation would ensue followed by the Three Stooges running away as the tune “Three Blind Mice” plays in the background. I’ll consistently be a fan of the Three Stooges, but our advice is to not be a stooge and try to make Heating, Ventilation, and A/C repairs yourself. Instead, contact a reputable and qualified team of Heating, Ventilation, and A/C professionals and hope that the right various men show up for the job.
