Curly remains a fan-favorite amongst fans of The Three Stooges. The lovable goof had all the catchphrases, like "Woob, woob, woob!", "Nyahh-ahhh-ahhh!" and "Soitenly!"

Behind the scenes, Curly Howard differed from his onscreen persona. Let's see how well you know this comedy legend.

16/16. I guessed on #15, which I never saw, but was lucky to get it. The other 15 were easy for a hardcore Stooges fan who first saw their shorts in 1960, the year after they were released. Fell in love with them, and never stopped! Saw them at least twice when they came to town (Curly Joe by then) in the Police Circus events, and the Stooges were very popular in doing some of their funny routines, including the same sound effects by the Police Circus technical people. These were in the early-1960s. Never will forget the kings of slapstick, after L&H's time!

One of my favorites is when Curley is trying to eat soup but the clam wins out. He goes wild slapping the bowl and shooting his gun into the soup! I wish someone asked him what his favorite short is! He was great!

All the stooges are great but Curly has a special place in my heart. So many times thru the day when I need a good laugh I think of him and one of his skits for example him standing at the top of the steps with an ice cube between the ice tongs. God bless the stooges I only hope that wherever there at that they know how much joy and laughter they brought to all of us.

10/16 I'm surprised I did so well because Shemp (Samuel) is my favorite; most of whose episodes I have on DVD! (I'm missing that "bridge" collection that features both!) I love Curly too, but I hate seeing his character abused without his getting some payback, like Shemp!
