I dont mind the colorized shorts, in fact..
Akeem the African Dream
There are dozens of episodes sitting in the vaults waiting to see the light of day and we're still getting 'Brideless Groom'.
C.Q.Link
This will be the fourth colorized set, and once again, some of the included shorts have already been released.

This is an absolutely ridiculous waste of a disc. Besides the obvious issue of colorising black and white classics that generations have been enjoying without feeling they're missing much because they're not in color, there are only 4 shorts on this disc, and two of them have already been released (one of them many many times over). If one counts the black and white and colorised versions as separate entities, there are actually 8 shorts on here. I guess it makes too much sense to Columbia to have released a disc with 8 all new-to-DVD shorts, and then, if they had to, including optional colorised versions, as was done on the British Laurel and Hardy boxed set. People who prefer the films the way they were originally released and the way they've been enjoyed for decades can watch them in the black and white, and the small minority of people who are heartily cheering on this artificial colorisation can choose to watch them in that incarnation. Yes, you can choose which versions to watch, but there are still only 4 shorts on here, with only two new to DVD (and only one of those two worthwhile), and for a higher price than is merited for such a small amount of material! (Who are these people who are gushing about how great color is anyway? One would think that classic comedy is just about the only thing immune to modern-day whining about how it's inferior just because it's not in color. It makes no sense for someone who was introduced to the shorts in their original black and white and who has loved and enjoyed them that way for years to now be singing the praises of watching them in this fake-looking Chroma Color.Read more ›

"Hapless Half-Wits" is clearly what Sony thinks of the people who would be interested in buying this atrocity... only four shorts, two of them on DVD already, and -- yes -- they're colorized. (I know you can "turn off the color", but that's a small consolation for being asked to pay $25 for only 2 shorts you don't already own on DVD.)

Sony is coming close to getting a "Worst DVD Producer EVER" award for these Stooges monstrosities.

I'm beside myself that after so many years, Sony has yet to give Stooges fans what they deserve. A fairly priced set, or sets, of "ALL" stooge shorts. Completey remastered, completely uncut and in chronological order. As the years go by, and we keep getting these horrible releases, I'm starting to think that it may never happen. This will be the fourth colorized set, and once again, some of the included shorts have already been released. And how in the world do they justify the $24.99 list price for 4 17 minute shorts? Now I know they were originally theatrical shorts, but since the late 50's, they have been mainly TV programs. The upcoming "All In The Family, Season 6" by Sony has a list price of $29.95. 24 episodes, 24 minutes each. Why won't they price Stooge discs acordingly? As a very large lifelong Stooge fan, I'm downright sick of this. Look at what Universal has done for Abbott And Costello fans with thier franchise sets. Sony needs to wisen up and and give Stooge fans what they deserve.

As one of the biggest Three Stooges fans around, I'm puzzled as to why so many of the reviews for these "colored" series are so harsh.

When VHS tapes came out, we paid $30 for three shorts. Then the price dropped to $15 for three titles.

With these current DVD's, there are four titles with impecible restored quality for the same price as the latter VHS format. Each short on the new DVD comes to $5 per episode. No more low contrast, dust, lines, muffled sound. While I will always prefer the original black and white format to the color (which looks good with the exception of the skin tones), if all we had to choose from was the color version, I could see what all the fuss is about. These prints look like they were filmed this morning. The quality is amazing!

As most Three Stooges fans would want a comprehensive set that chronicles the shorts in order (and I'll include myself in this desire), I'd rather have four shorts that look and sound beautiful to earlier releases. Compare these restored shorts to the quality of the prints on earlier DVD releases like "Curly Classics". It's like night and day.

As for another "Brideless Groom" entry, it's really like seeing it for the first time. In all past releases (including its previous DVD premiere), the scene with Shemp shaving always had an abrupt blackout which has been corrected here.

It seems to me that people are reviewing these discs without actually viewing them ( or as Curly might say, "I've got my eyes closed".) You have the choice to view these episodes in restored black and white or with the computerized color.

Until there is a proper chronilogical ordered release, the current series should be getting higher praise. The care that has gone into restoring these 70+ year old shorts is nothing less than breathtaking.

I agree it would be nice to see more shorts on one disc, but I must applaud the producers of this DVD for making raising the bar on quality. Being a fan, I've seen these shorts at least a hundred times before, but the picture and sound was so remarkable, it felt like I was watching it for the first time. I think the research and development of these shorts kind of justifies the price. They don't just pick a color. They actually look things up to see what color various clothing and props were at the time and make things as accurate as possible. The color is amazing.
