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!"
