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.

Tune in to see the best of Curly Howard all this fall on MeTV every Saturday at 6PM | 5C. We call it "Fall for Curly!"

In #13, "Hold That Lion!" (1947), it was the only short where all 3 Howard (film actors, but there were two other non-actor brothers, Jack and Irving) appeared: Moe, Curly, and Shemp. Curly had his hair grow back (intentionally shaving it to get his nickname), and makes his famous "Woo, Woo" sound while pretending to be asleep and snoring. His last appearance on film, and he went out with a great gag! He died at only 48, suffering a series of strokes after his first one that disabled him in May 1946, while waiting for his cue in the next scene in "Half-Wits Holiday" (1947), which is why you don't see him again near the end before the big pie fight scenes. And not on film again except for that one film appearance after he had regained some of his movement and speech after months of therapy. He filmed a scene for their short, "Malice in the Palace" (1949) as a chef, but it was left on the cutting room floor (although there are publicity photographs of the scene).
Oct. 22, 1903 - Jan. 18, 1952.
