These four adventures boast the latest in film restoration technology: they've been digitally colorized and remastered into high-definition video and feature ChromaColor, allowing you to switch between the new color and classic black-and-white versions instantaneously using a DVD remote! Includes Violent Is the Word for Curly," You Natzy Spy!," No Census, No Feeling" and An Ache in Every Stake". 1938-41/color-b&w/70 min/NR/fullscreen.

Amazon.com

A quartet of Three Stooges shorts (three new to DVD) make up this solid disc, all with mid-period Curly in woo-woo-woo form. "Violent is the Word for Curly" somehow morphs the boys from gas-station attendants to European college professors. Not only does it feature Curly roasting on a spit, but the Stooges instruct the students of Mildew College for Women in the intricacies of "Swinging the Alphabet," a memorable nonsense song. "You Nazty Spy" is the Stooges' answer to Duck Soup and The Great Dictator, as a cabal of businessmen install Moe as the dictator of Moronika. With an accidental mustache and jibbering German, Moe does a convincing Hitler. (But didn't he always?)

"No Census, No Feeling" is a rangy, so-so bit that begins with a lame premise about the Stooges as census takers (it was 1940, after all) and ends up at a football game. But the best gag has Curly mixing up a noxious fruit punch. You know "An Ache in Every Stake" will be a goodie from the moment Moe and Larry attempt to remove a block of ice from around Curly's head by using a chisel and mallet. Its centerpiece is a variation on the flight of stairs from Laurel and Hardy's "The Music Box," but Curly does nicely stuffing a turkey, too.

Stooged & Confoosed is presented with Columbia's "ChromaChoice" device, which allows for easy toggling between the original black-and-white shorts (which appear in great shape) and a colorized version. The colorized images are sensibly rendered, but they still have that washed-out paleness they've always had--eggshell greens and light browns abound. Stooges purists will stick to black-and-white, the better to appreciate the subtleties of a cheese grater being scraped across Curly's face. --Robert Horton

The picture is crisp, the colors are sharp.

I bought this DVD for my dad as a Christmas gift but unfortunately it isn't playing correctly.

I think it really looks like it was filmed in color.

'The Three Stooges- Stooged and Confused', is without a doubt the best example of colorization I've seen, and couldn't have looked better had it been filmed in color to begin with! I can't understand those who criticise these discs, after all, you also get the original black & white prints, so how can you go wrong? O.K. as with all such discs, some shorts may be better than others, but that's just a matter of which ones are your favorites, but as far as the color goes, it's very realistic, and it's a great way to see the 'Stooges' as close as possible to how they would have been seen if color was the norm back in those days. I personally hope they do it to all of them.

That's what a friend's 12-year-old son told me when I gave him a video compilation of stuff I loved when I was his age. That is why all you huffalumps should quit complaining about the amazing colorization technology used here, unless you want the Stooges to become a relic. It's obvious to me that trying to appeal to a new, young audience is the main reason for offering both versions on one disc. To a 12-year-old who has never seen it in black & white, they would never know the difference, but being in color it would at least hold their interest. Get over it.

Screw the nitpickers! So what if there's only four episodes, it cost bucks to do colorization as good as this. And so far this is the best I've seen, and I have seen a lot. If you are into the Stooges you are gonna love the colorization and it has the option to be seen in B/W. I love it so much, I'm gonna purchase all the colorized dvd's.

Regardless of the questionable quality as well as quantity of what's on here, I really wanted to praise this DVD for it's inclusion of the brilliantly done short called "You Nazty Spy" which does a spine-splittingly hilarious job of spoofing Nazi Germany during the end of the 1930s and early 1940s. In fact, it was the first of any kind of film that actually spoofed Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. Here Moe Howard plays a fascist bumbling dictator named Moe Hailstone who is installed after the country of Moronica's kind is deposed and sent into exile. Moe's imitation of Hitler's speeches is scary at times but the way he barks in his version of German is so funny you may end up shedding tears from laughing so hard.

While nowhere near "You Nazty Spy", the other three shorts included are also entertaining but "An ache in Every Stake" is my second favorite. Moe Larry and Curly star as icemen who deliver ice to customers during a severe heatwave but during that time destroy two birthday cakes that were meant for a police chief's birthday party. As they escaped from losing their icebox which actually crashes into the chief at the bottom of the stairs, the boys wind up as cooks after the original chef quits. The chef actually was assigned to make the birthday for the police chief who when he meets the new cooks is unaware that it's the same guys who ruined two of his previous birthday cakes.

While I'll give credit for the colorizing job on the DVD, I'll always prefer the black & white version because it always feels more true to the spirit of the Three Stooges. There are certianly better buys out there than this one but the inclusion of "You Nazty Spy" and "Ache In Every Stake" make this DVD a five star for me.

The colour in these shorts is brilliant - it looks authentic for the era and highlights so much more detail in the scenes. One can now empathise with the action rather than view it simply as a relic of the dim past. The Stooges come alive as flesh and blood people, young and vital again! Let's hope the studio produces many more of these remastered and coloured shorts.

Gotta admit, I kept these three {authorized} colorized collections.
It has the correct eye-color for the Stooges, and certain vintage items are propery colored.
I HATE the colorization process, but, I'll put up with it for those occasional CHILDREN that just
fall asleep watching Black & White movies.

Spoiled rotten kids! I never owned a color-TV until I was well into my thirties... used ta change
those 6AU6 TV-vacuum tubes, and check 'em on a radio/TV tube tester at the local Rexall Drug Store,
and keep my 12" B&W TV goin' when I was a kid... got quite a few shocks with my little fingers.

Well, anyway, there's this one, and the o-t-h-e-r one in a double pack:
Three Stooges, the (Colorized) [01] - Goofs on the Loose / Three Stooges, the (Colorized) [02] - Stooged & Confoosed Pack
or, the other two colored-ones, seperately:
The Three Stooges - Goofs on the Loose (Colorized / Black & White)
The Three Stooges: Stooges on the Run (Color)

It is a great idea to be able to toggle from black and white to color, but it would be much more enjoyable to watch if there wasn't the camera icon on the upper center screen throughout the whole DVD. I have two DVD players and both of them show this annoying icon and there is no way to get rid of it. Great idea for a Three Stooges DVD but not enjoyable to watch at all with that spot on the screen. I have done a little research on the net and found out that it does this on several models of DVD players.
