The Three Stooges Story
See all six of the Stooges in this exhaustive Nyukumentary covering their comedic career in all its goofy glory, also featuring on-camera interviews with several of their collaborators from both sides of the camera.
The Three Stooges Festival
You ll find all the nyuks you can handle in this special made-for-video compilation spanning more than three decades of Stooge-mania, including madcap movie shorts, original coming attractions, and rare TV footage.
The boys wreak havoc on a golf course, the open road, a fishing boat, a camping trip, an airport scale and a beach, and as perplexed paperhangers, foolish photographers,
short-tempered chefs, and dim-bulb doctors.
Funniest Moments II
The Stooges appear as clueless campers facing an escaped lion, sappy sailors and soldiers, addle-brained actors, timid test pilots, moronic magicians, over-eager electricians, witless waiters, and horseless cowboys.
The Three Stooges help an aspiring singer, Carol Lawrence (My Little Margie s Gale Storm), and
a nightclub owner, Danny Warren (Phil Regan), find love in this musical comedy, also known as Swing Parade of 1946.
Kings Of Laughter
Three s never a crowd when it comes to the immortal Stooges, as demonstrated by this
no-holds-barred, back-to-back compilation of mayhem, wild comedy, and classic routines
from TV, film shorts, and features.
Four of the immortal Stooges (Larry Fine, Moe Howard, Shemp Howard, and Curly Howard) star
in four side-splitting 15-minute sketches that highlight their signature brand of humor, and will leave you in stitches.
The Three Stooges Cartoons
The inimitable Three Stooges are at it again in this back-to-back collection of their most hilarious animated segments, made in 1965 and featuring the actual voices of Moe Howard, Larry Fine, and Curly Joe DeRita.

HAVE ROCKET, WILL TRAVEL (1959) - I find it difficult to imagine a better looking print than this flawless Mill Creek Entertainment digital transfer. This is, along with THE THREE STOOGES MEET HERCULES, the best of the Mill Creek digital transfers!
THE OUTLAWS IS COMING (1965) - The overall quality of this transfer is unfortunately very poor. In addition to several instances of green screen and one brief instance of green pixilation, there is also the added annoyance of jittery video, which was apparently caused by excessive frame rate re-encoding conversion. The latter is especially evident during the film's action scenes. Overall, this digital transfer is pretty much a complete write off! I've seen less jittery video on old You Tube clips! This is easily the worst of the lot!
ROCKIN' IN THE ROCKIES (1945) - The otherwise fine digital transfer is slightly marred by a pair of brief glitches of the non pixel variety, that occur at the 42:28 and 59:39 (When the top half of Spade Cooley's head briefly appears as though it were semi-decapitated!) marks, respectively.
THE THREE STOOGES GO AROUND THE WORLD IN A DAZE (1963) - This amusing Feature Length Travelogue is relatively free of glitches, save for a brief vertical shake that occurs at the 88:49 mark.
THE THREE STOOGES MEET HERCULES (1962) - This most enjoyable feature thankfully appears to be free of obvious visual issues. This and HAVE ROCKET, WILL TRAVEL are this Millcreek Set's best digital transfers!
TIME OUT FOR RHYTHM (1941) - This otherwise pleasant Musical/Comedy passer timer, which features delightful appearances by Moe, Larry, and Curly throughout is unfortunately slightly marred by two brief instances of pixilation, which occur during the Film's first four and a half minutes.
My overall assessment of THE THREE STOOGES - 6 MOVIE SET is that, while the Mill Creek Entertainment digital video transfers are far from terrible (With the exception of THE OUTLAWS IS COMING! ), the results are something of a mixed bag. As such, I can't give this set a wholehearted recommendation, but rather a qualified one laced with caveats. Indeed, whether or not to consider purchase of this set should depend on which of the Features listed above are being sought. Below are my Sony Vs. Mill Creek recommendations for each of these:
HAVE ROCKET, WILL TRAVEL and THE THREE STOOGES MEET HERCULES - For those who are looking for either or both of these Titles, my recommendation is to look no further, as these are the two "Stooges" Features that Mill Creek got right! So long as the price tag for this set remains low, in my opinion, the Mill Creek Set is worth the price for even just one of these Features!
TIME OUT FOR RHYTHM - In my opinion, the choice for this one is a bit murky. In my view, it comes down to what one considers to be the lesser of two evils; a DVD-R Glitch Free Print Transfer vs. Commercially Pressed DVD, but with a Slightly Glitchy Digital Transfer. One of these two glitches (Both are unfortunately of the pixilation variety!) that appear on the Mill Creek DVD occur during the opening credits. Personally, I can live with the Mill Creek Version.
ROCKIN' IN THE ROCKIES - Due to the aforementioned pair of quick glitches, I recommend the version that appears on THE THREE STOOGES: RARE TREASURES FROM THE VAULT 3 DVD Set by Sony. Thankfully, as I do also have that set, I needn't make a choice here, though I could live with either digital transfer.
THE THREE STOOGES GO AROUND THE WORLD IN A DAZE - Due to the aforementioned brief vertical image shake that occurs during the Film's final five minutes, I give a slight recommendation for the original Sony DVD Version. As for the poor print quality that's been reported for both the Mill Creek and original Sony DVD issues, I strongly suspect that more than one Film source was used in the digital scanning for this particular Title, as the video quality does vary throughout. For me, the Mill Creek Transfer is quite adequate.
THE OUTLAWS IS COMING - Very simply, my recommendation for those who are considering purchase of the Mill Creek Set solely for this Three Stooges Feature--DON'T! Out of the six "Stooges" Features, the problems with Visual Jitter and multiple instances of Green Screen (Two issues that should NEVER occur on any commercially issued DVD!), have sadly combined to produce what is by far the most disappointing result of all the Titles within the Three Stooges Mill Creek Set! It is my strong recommendation to get the original Sony DVD release, instead! I plan to do so as soon as my budget allows!
************************************** UPDATE! ************************************
June 6, 2015:
For those who are set up for Blu-ray, I recommend the two recently released THE THREE STOOGES TRIPLE FEATURE Blu-ray Volumes instead, as all of the aforementioned glitches (Except for "Go Around The World In A Daze") have been corrected for these Millcreek Entertainment offerings!
This 2-DVD set also includes "The Three Stooges Meet Hercules" (1962). Schuyler Davis (Quinn K. Redeker) invents a time machine that sends him, Diane Quigley (Vicki Trickett), and the Three Stooges back in time to ancient Greece. My favorite line in the movie occurs when Larry and Curly-Joe are trying to read road signs for directions. Moe: "I'll smash the first guy who says it's all Greek to me!" This set also includes "The Three Stooges Go Around The World In A Daze" (1963). Phileas Fogg III (Jay Sheffield) accepts a bet to duplicate his great grandfather's famous trip around the world. Why the Three Stooges are in England and acting as Phileas Fogg's servants is never explained, but that doesn't matter. My advice for the viewer is to sit back and go along for the ride. I don't want to say that the stooges are showing their age in this film, but in addition to packing his suitcase, Moe should have packed the bags under his eyes! This set also includes the Three Stooges' final feature film, "The Outlaws Is Coming" (1965). As noted in other reviews, the DVD transfer of this film includes several instances of green screen, which are very brief, but very noticeable. The movie is set in 1871. The Three Stooges work for Kenneth Cabot (Adam West), the editor of a Boston wildlife conservation magazine. They travel to the town of Casper, Wyoming where, with the help of Annie Oakley (Nancy Kovack), Kenneth is made sheriff. Later, Kenneth ends up having a gun duel with virtually every notorious Wild West gunslinger at the same time! With this film, the Three Stooges end their movie career on a strong note. Despite the fact that two movies are duplicated in "The Three Stooges: The Ultimate Collection," and even taking into account the minor green screen defects in one movie, the low price of this 2-DVD set makes it a worthwhile purchase for Three Stooges fans.
