Look what I got you knuckle heads! http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBay...=290092443171&rd=1,1 All of them! Now I can finally throw away my old worn VHS tapes from years ago The seller has a few left if any of you other numbskulls what them I see I'm paying a little more than you did! I wonder if this is the same seller?
This collection does not contain all of them It's missing 16 shorts with Curly and about 5 with Shemp. There are some repeats on volumes 3 and 5. Volume 5 has mostly Joe The collection is identical to this set at this site http://www.thevintagetheatr...ug14sCFRllgQod9nLwUw Compare it to the shorts listed here at the Stooges website http://www.threestooges.com/filmography/ The seller was honest though. He claimed he had no idea the set was missing some shorts and offered a refund if I returned the DVD's. We worked out a deal and he reimbursed me $50.00 back on my paypal. I'll use that to purchase the ones I'm missing here http://www.soitenlystooges....y&category=33&Optin= Alot of work but I'm not going to my grave without owning every Curly short first

Larry, Moe and Curly Are “N'Yuk, N'Yuk, N'Yuk”-ing it Up in a New, Definitive Volume of Classic Shorts
THE THREE STOOGES COLLECTION VOLUME ONE: YEARS 1 - 3
All 19 Digitally-Restored Two-Reelers from 1934 through 1936 Packaged in a Two-Disc DVD
AVAILABLE ON OCTOBER 30
CULVER CITY, CALIF. (August 20, 2007) – Eye-gouging, nose-tweaking, stomach-poking, ear-pulling, head-slapping, pie-throwing, and seltzer-spraying can only mean one thing. The classic comedy trio of Larry, Moe, and Curly are back doing what they do best. On October 30, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will launch its definitive new series of Three Stooges DVDs with The Three Stooges Collection: Years 1-3. This first volume includes all 19 shorts from the boys’ first three years at Columbia. The two-reelers are chronologically organized by their original release date and painstakingly restored from the original negatives for the very best picture and audio quality. The DVD will be available in a two-disc package for the standard retail price of $24.96.
The Three Stooges are one of the most significant screen comedy teams of the 20th century, on par with Laurel and Hardy, Abbott and Costello, and Martin and Lewis -- an inspiration to generations of comics that followed. The trio’s film career began in the early 1930s, reached its slapstick peak during their tenure at Columbia (1934-1957), and lasted well into the 1950s. After their initial retirement, they were rediscovered by an enthusiastic new generation through the medium of television and have outstripped all their contemporaries in terms of lasting popularity. "The Three Stooges Collection: Years 1 - 3" finally pays the Stooges their due by tracing the evolution and development of their craft by presenting the films in progressive order.
The Three Stooges Collection: Years 1 - 3 includes the following titles:
1934 - WOMAN HATERS, PUNCH DRUNKS (only short actually written by the Stooges), the Oscar® nominated MEN IN BLACK, and THREE LITTLE PIGSKINS (featuring a young Lucille Ball).
1935 - HORSES' COLLARS (their first Western spoof), RESTLESS KNIGHTS (first “triple-slap” in a Stooge short), POP GOES THE EASEL (first film for frequent director Del Lord), UNCIVIL WARRIORS (set during the Civil War), PARDON MY SCOTCH (first Stooge short to use “Listen to the Mockingbird” as its theme song), HOI POLLOI (remade as Half-Wits Holiday in 1947), and THREE LITTLE BEERS.
1936 - ANTS IN THE PANTRY (features silent star Clara Kimball Young), MOVIE MANIACS (features Charlie Chaplin’s first wife Mildred Harris), HALF-SHOT SHOOTERS (first short in which the Stooges get killed), DISORDER IN THE COURT (features the famous “swearing in” scene with Curly), A PAIN IN THE PULLMAN (the longest short of the series), FALSE ALARMS, WHOOPS, I'M AN INDIAN!, and SLIPPERY SILKS (featuring the first Stooges cream dessert fight).
The Three Stooges Collection: Years 1 - 3 has a run time of approximately 345 minutes and is not rated. Artwork is available at www.SPHEPUBLICITY.COM. Visit Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on the Web at www.SonyPictures.com.

I am so getting this! FINALLY I will be able to get all of The 3 Stooges on DVD! I have 3 VHS tapes full of shorts I recorded as a kid off channel 50 here in Detroit. This should be a major upgrade in quality.
The 4th in the series of remastered DVD's has been released for those who pre-ordered.
I will say that Sony has done an excellent job with these remastered DVD's. I'm simply blown away at how nice these are, the picture and sound are like beyond anything that Sony has ever produced for the Stooges.

Thats so cool that you like the Three Stooges. I bet that you would have enjoyed yourself at the recent Three Stooges film festival the the Royal Oak Theater. About 800 fans and nearly half were women, it was a fun evening.
Sony has come out with re-mastered shorts of The Three Stooges in chronological order, each set covers a couple of years. Here are the links to each set sold at amazon .com for those who are interested. I will update the listings as each set becomes available for pre-order.
Moe,,,,"Get up you sleepy heads, look at me every morning wide awake, 11o'clock." Larry,,,,"I'm awake." Moe,,,"How about you?" Curly,,,"I'm awake but I can't get my eyes open, (plink) OUCH, thanks!"
Moe,,,,,"All for one"! Larry,,,,,"One for all"! Curly,,,,,,"I'll take care of myself"!
Moe,,,"What's the matter with him?" Curly,,,,"Tarpon monoxide?"
Curly,,,,"Hey, have you a fishing license?" Moe,,,,"No." Curly,,,,"Then give me back my fish!"
Larry,,,,"Hey wait a minute, I can't find the negative." Moe,,,,"How about the positive." Curly,,,,"I'm positive about the negative but I'm a little negative about the positive." Moe,,,"Oh, negative eh!" slap slap smack
Man,,,,,"How dare you hold my wife in front of my eyes." Curly,,,,"Turn around, I'll hug her behind your back."
Moe,,,,'How do you spell chrysanthemum? Oh ignorant eh?" slap "How do you spell it? Curly,,,,"C-H-R-Y-S-A-N-T-H-E-M-U-M." Moe,,,,"Why wasn't you here a minute ago!" smack slap
Curly,,,,"Hit Santa Claus,,,,just for that,,,, no toys!"
You dug up this thread from 2004. You truly are sick.
Curly...."I feel better already." Moe...."What was the matter with you?" Curly...."NOTHING!" nyuk nyuk nyuk
Actually it's much worse than you thought, I started back in 04, kept it going this whole time much to the chargrin of the forum members. As you can see, everyone is ignoring me, no body in his/her right mind is encouraging me at all.
Patient...."Give me an anasthetic Doctor!" Curly...."What color?" Man...."He wants to get knocked out." Curly smacks patient with a large mallet. Curly...."He's out!" Man...."What did you give him?" Curly...."Hammeritis!"
Fire Captain...."If this were the army, I'd have you shot at sunrise!" Curly..."But you couldn't do that Captain, we don't get up that early."
Knight...."Gentleman the Queen requests your presence." Curly...."But we haven't any presents, all the stores were closed."
I just rented it from BlockBuster, I loved it, 4 out of 5 slaps for any knucklehead and it's rated PG so your parents can watch it too, nyuk, nyuk, nyuk.
Granted, nobody can ever replace the boys, but the actors and the script did a fine job of paying honor to the stooges. I really admire how well the actors got all the manerisms down, the script played into the gags, plenty of the old routines revived in a fresh fashion.
I got to hand it to the Farley brothers for producing the Three Stooges movie, guts for attempting a next to impossible task for the stooge purists, all the credit in the world for getting it right, beyond what I was expecting.
Oh yeah, check out the "Stooge Mash", bonus feature on the DVD, it'll crack you up.
You know, I'll admit that I was hyper-critical going in at first, judgements were quickly erased, found myself laughing out loud, yeah, it was a very good movie for the stooge fan.
So one of our product vendors was visiting me in the store, I had excuse myself for a brief moment, came back into the office to see him laughing his butt off. Unbeknownst to me, he's a big Three Stooges fan, my email notification sound is the Doctor Howard, Doctor Fine, Doctor Howard clip. Yeah, he heard that loud and clear! He's our best product supplier now, that's for sure!
Yeah, you guys thought if you ignored me, this thread would go away, but that's sabatooogie!
The boys are about to jump off the building to their deaths, Curly starts eating a pie, Moe asks Curly, why are you eating a pie for at a time like this? Curly replies, "So I can die-just right".
jetman spinning around in circles on the floor, whooo, whooo, whooo. Moe, Larry the cheese, the cheese. Limburger!
Curly,,,,,"I shot an arrow into the air, where it lands I do not care. I get my arrows wholesale!!" Moe,,,,"Hey Wiliam Tell, for two pins I'd bat your brains in!" Curly,,,,"But I haven't any pins." Moe,,,,"You haven't any brains either!"
Holy cow! This thread just won't die, will it? Maybe it's haunted, nyuk nyuk nyuk.
Ok so I walk into the company training center before the meeting started and suddenly I see myself up on the big projection screen so seeing as I was on camera and all, naturally I started into Three Stooges lines. Well now, unbeknownst to me, the meeting was being broadcast to all the franchises. The good part, i still have a job, everyone got a kick out of it, me being a big ham and everything..
Moe,,,, "You've got nothing to worrie about, if the burgler stabs you in the head, he'll ruin his knife"
Knight,,,, "Knaves, announce yourself to the queen." Moe,,,,"Your majesty, we are the three fallen knights." Curly,,,,"Our days ain't so hot either,"
Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk, keeping this thread going for 10 years, i'm an imbecile.
Customer,,,,"What kind of fool do you take me for." Curly,,,,"Why, is there more then one kind?"
"She was bred in ole Kentucky but she's only a crumb up here She's knock-kneed and double jointed with a cauliflower ear Someday we shall be married and if vegetables get too dear I'll just cut myself a nice big slice of her cauliflower ear 'cuz that ain't rationed!"
Curly,,,,"Wait a minute! Wait a minute! Let a man who knows how to saw , see , saw!" "Oh give me a home where the buffalo roam and the deer and the antellope are play-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ing!" SMACK
Moe,,,,"We eluded them!" Curly,,,,"Yeah, and we got away."
Curly,,,,"I'm stabbed, I'm dead, I'm murdered, I'm killed, I'm annihilated. What will the world do without me? What will I do without myself? I'm slaughtered, I'm annihilated, I'm destroyed, I'm barbecued, I'm done for. Can you think of anything else? Moe,,,,"No, you've covered it all." Curly,,,,"I'm not even wounded?!" Moe,,,,"That's what you think!" slap smack bonk
