THE THREE STOOGES
Get ready to nyuk, nyuk, nyuk-it-up Stooge-style! The masters of mischief are ready to tickle your funny bone with their outrageous storylines and trademark slapstick humor.

LAUREL AND HARDY
Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy burst onto the big screen in the year 1917 in their debut film, Lucky Dog. It was only a matter of time before their hilarious antics and off-the-wall adventures would propel the duo to celebrity of legendary proportions. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this fun-loving team of comic geniuses in eight of their classic episodes, including the pair's first film ever, Lucky Dog.

The Three stooges( Collectors Edition)
The box says "7DVDs over 11 hours" what they dont say is that there are only 4 classic stooges shorts and only on the first DVD. The rest of the set is crap. The reamaining 6 1/2 dvds /10 hours are patched together bad movies and cartoons ( remember the really bad stooges cartoons you wouldnt even watch back in the 60's) It is intentionaly misrepresented. The packaging is first class, a real eyegrabber, but whats inside is junk.

A 3-disc reissue of 2002's 75th Anniversary 2-disc edition from Madacy and C3 Entertainment. My earlier review of that collection follows, with these additional notes/warnings to this updated edtion...

- Disc 1 is unchanged, with the Stooges' 4 public domain Columbia shorts transferred from mediocre 16mm, Screen Gems, dupe prints.

- Disc 2 contains the same material as the earlier edition.

- Disc 3 is a new addition, featuring 1970's TV pilot KOOK'S TOUR. Previously licensed to Anchor Bay Entertainment, rights owner C3 Entertainment has transferred home video distribution rights of this film to Madacy... the Super8mm source material is unfortunately/inherently bad for both, but this Madacy version is further degraded with digital pixelation problems.

- All bonus features on Disc 3 DUPLICATE the content of Disc 2!

On the plus side, this new version comes in a tin case with a sound-chip mechanism containing a grand total of 4 Stooge sound-bytes, from the 4 public domain Columbia shorts on Disc 1. Uh, yeah.

Review of the earlier edition, from 2003...

"With the title 'Three Stooges 75th Anniversary Collectors Edition,' and a very nice packaging presentation, you may have expectations of a wide selection of the comedy team's best work, or even some rarities. But...

It's a collection of public domain material, much available since the dawn of home video on many tape and disc offerings from numerous distributors. You'll find the four pd Columbia shorts, DISORDER IN THE COURT (1936), SING A SONG OF SIX PANTS (1947), BRIDELESS GROOM (1947) and MALICE IN THE PALACE (1949), plus a handful of NEW 3 STOOGES (1965) cartoons.

I went into buying this eight DVD box set believing that there would be at least a few classic "Stooges" shorts. Instead, I receive only ONE DVD of shorts, the rest of the set being comprised of various clips, biographies, and rare footage of the Howard brothers. I'm all for learning a bit about our classic comedy heritage here, but my main complaint is that the clips on each DVD borrow greatly from each other (you'll find yourself watching one DVD, realizing you've seen these clips on the LAST DVD!), the clips are poorly edited together, and there are far too many annoying "Pop-up Video"-esque factoids that are indeed informative, but get in the way of enjoying the Stooges' comedy.

If you're interested in learning about the team here, read a biography. If you want to actually WATCH the Stooges, try a different box set.

This is a complete waste of money for any real Stooges fan. You do get three DVDs. One is cartoon stooges. One is Laurel and Hardy. Only one is 3 Stooges -1 Curly episode and 2 Shemp episodes. My husband is a huge Stooges fan and couldn't watch anything except the Curly episode. I don't feel it was properly advertised on the box.

I bought this set thinking I was going to enjoy many hours of The Stooges. It only has a few shorts that are all over-played on TV, having seen them a hundred times already.

Charging a full retail price for a set like this, containing just a few shorts, is shameful. You're paying an extra 10 bucks for the tin box, little more. This set is a bargain-bin type item worth maybe four to five bucks at most.

It's my fault for being suckered out of my money. This purchase has taught me to read the content descriptions VERY CAREFULLY before buying future "special collections."

Now I'm off to buy the REAL complete chronological collections of The Three Stooges being released by Sony Pictures.

I haven't watched this yet. I plan to update this review, but the box lists the contents and no one else has offered that here.

I can tell you that this is a collection for hardcore fans only. It contains only one of your favorite Columbia shorts featuring Curly from their mid-30s through mid-40s heyday. The rest can be found on Sony's multi-volume set "The Three Stooges Collection."

As I watch, I'll update this listing with notes about the transfer quality of films, details, and DVD extras.

DVD1 - The Three Stooges Everywhere
1. Nertsery Rhymes (1933 Ted Healy and His Stooges) - Curly's first appearance on film, and the first appearance of Moe, Larry and Curly with Healy. Originally shot in two-strip technicolor. While this early version of technicolor was unimpressive, it was likely included to illuminate the two plush musical numbers in this 15-minute short. The print here is in unrestored black-and-white, which undoubtedly diminishes the experience. This film will never rank high in the pantheon of Stooge greats, but for its historical significance, it deserves a decent restoration.
2. Roast Beef and Movies (1933) - Also originally produced in two-strip technicolor, presented here in unrestored black-and-white. Curly appears without Healy or the other Stooges in this early solo effort. A much better Technicolor print of this can be found on the MGM DVD "Dancing Lady," (ASIN B000F7CMPO).
3. The Three Stooges Family Album - A 1998 half-hour documentary of the lives of the Stooges, rich with rare black-and-white, silent home movie footage provided by the Stooges' families. Includes footage of the three Howard boys Moe, Curly, and Shemp briefly goofing with their parents at Curly's 1938 wedding, among other bits. Quality is good.
