Format: Paperback
For nearly twenty years, Joan's "Three Stooges Scrapbook" has been the one reference book that any Stooge fan cannot be without. The book is conveniently divided into sections (biographies, history of the team, television, collectables, etc.), is easy to read, and is one of the most comprehensive books on the comedy team ever to be published. You will refer to this book again and again.

Format: Paperback
Partially written by Moe's daughter, this is the book the budding stooge fan should buy first. Each of the stooges (Moe, Larry, Curly, Shemp, Joe, and Curly Joe) are given a separate biographical chapter. Their filmmaking history is covered, as well as less well known forays into Television, Comic Books, and yes, singing record albums. The stooges proved to be successful in nearly everything they tried. But the best feature by far is the reference synopses of EVERY stooge short, complete with cast list, director, and trivia. If a gag was used in multiple shorts (many were), they are cross-referenced. A must for any stooge's film festival. Another highlight is photos of the original lobby cards for the shorts. A number of family photographs are included, in which almost all, the boys are shown mugging. A gem for any stooge fan, it has been in print for more than 20 years.

Wonderfully revised, but some strange photo photo choices on the cover. (Why the stroked-out Curly, instead of a vibrant shot of the comedian?) I'm glad many of the errors from the original edition were corrected. The authors augmented the edition with more interesting shots. All in all, this is a must-have for any serious Stooges fan or scholar.

I have owned this book since it was first published and words can't describe how much I love it. I refer to it all the time. Love drips off the pages--the love the Stooges had for their fans, their families for them, and the Stooges for each other. Who wouldn't be proud to be a Stooge?

After 20 years in print, this 1983 book remains the best book for Three Stooges fans! If you want to know all about the Stooges themselves, the team's history, the films, the records, the comic books, 50 years of collectibles & memorabilia, and so much more...
Twenty years of subsequent Stooges research has turned up some discrepancies, but overall this book is the definitive reference tool. Authors Joan Howard, who is Moe's daughter, and the Lenburg brothers created a tome that deserves an updated printing for the 2000's! (Although the current management of C3 will probably not allow that to happen.)
Since SCRAPBOOK's publication, it has been worthily joined by:
- THE COMPLETE THREE STOOGES by Jon Solomon, a detailed and worthy companion that analyses each Three Stooges film from 1930 - 1970
- Moe Howard's own autobiography, MOE HOWARD AND THE THREE STOOGES (1976) *
- And, Joan Howard's CURLY: BIOGRAPHY OF THE SUPERSTOOGE (1985) *
* Out of print, but used copies are readily available from Amazon, other online retailers, and online auction sites
... This book and the aforemtioned companions combine to make the best reference tools for any Three Stooges fan!

I've read most of the book and have enjoyed it immensely. I've already read "I Stooged to Conquer" and the two books combined have given me more information on the Stooges that I never knew anything about. In my generation all we saw of them were reruns on TV. I had no idea they had comics, merchandise or all of the shorts and cameos they did outside of just what I knew as the Three Stooges.
I strongly recommend this for any Stooge fan, then loan it to someone who thinks that the Stooges are only what they saw on a rerun.

This isn't your run-of-the-mill biography but rather, as the title implies, a scrapbook. There are brief biographical profiles of all 6 of the Stooges, along with Ted Healy, without whom they never would have been. There's also a chapter giving a historical overview of their career. The real reason for the book comes in the subsequent chapters. There's a lot of great chronological information on Stooges merchandise and off-shoots, particularly in the late Fifties and during the Sixties, when they were heavily being marketed to kids and surprisingly enjoyed their greatest financial success, even though they were really past their creative peak. Some people might feel they sold out by doing things such as recording albums for children and starring in cartoons, but after they were financially taken advantage of by Columbia for 25 years, I don't begrudge them anything they did when they finally were making as much money as they were worth, whether or not they were getting older and had to tone down their antics to please parents. There are also great chapters on impersonators, the boys in comic books, their ever-increasing fan base, the history of their films being shown on television, and tributes paid to them by other comedians who have been influenced by their style. The final section also gives synopses and complete cast and crew lists of all of their shorts and features any of them ever appeared in, as a team, with Ted Healy, or on their own. There's a lot going for this book to highly recommend it.

However, this book was also published in 1981. While most of the basic facts haven't changed, that's still nearly 25 years ago. A lot has happened since, and a revised updated edition really seems in order.
