MeTV Presents The Three Stooges on Saturday evenings beginning June 1
Get your "Nyuks" with full-length, unedited Stooges shorts without commercial interruption.
On Saturday, June 1, legendary comedy troupe and masters of mirth The Three Stooges will join MeTV’s lineup of memorable entertainment television. Over 13 weeks, these specially selected and themed broadcasts will each present two full-length, unedited shorts without commercial interruption, packaged into an hour-long presentation that highlights the many "best of" moments from the beloved comedians. This includes selected bonus highlights from other classic shorts that fit the week's theme.
Airing Saturdays at 6PM | 5C, weekly themes include "Crème de la Curly," "Just Say Moe," "Pie…I Oughta!" and "Shemp Cocktail," featuring the classic combo of The Three Stooges trio — laidback Larry, hotheaded Moe, man-child Curly, along with dimwitted Shemp. See the complete schedule below.
"In the pantheon of American comedy, the most memorable trio of them all are The Three Stooges," said Neal Sabin, Vice Chairman of Weigel Broadcasting Co. "Moe, Larry, Curly, along with Shemp and others, brought laughter and joy to generations of fans with their world-famous short films, first in theaters and later on broadcast television. MeTV is the perfect home for the boys and their beloved brand of comedy. We look forward to reuniting Stooge fans with these classics, as well as introducing them to a new generation of viewers."
MeTV Presents The Three Stooges joins Green Acres and The Twilight Zone (1985) as highlights of the Summer of Me schedule.
Initially debuting on the vaudeville circuit in the 1920s, The Three Stooges went on to film more than 190 short films for Columbia Pictures over a 25 year span. Their signature brand of slapstick comedy and unique chemistry resulted in iconic shorts like Punch Drunks, A-Plumbing We Will Go, Micro-Phonies, Disorder in the Court, Brideless Groom and You Nazty Spy!, which was the first Hollywood film to spoof Adolf Hitler, as well as Men in Black, which earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Short Subject in 1935.
Despite limited critical acclaim, The Three Stooges continued to resonate with audiences and welcomed a new generation of fans with their television debut in 1958. The Three Stooges were a mainstay on American television, and their catchphrases remain inked in popular culture.
Throughout their 40-year career, the comedy team appeared in both shorts and feature-length films, and their legacy remains preserved in the “Stoogeum,” a museum in Pennsylvania dedicated to the iconic trio.

Since I am in Pacific Standard time is it 3:00 PM the Stooges start here?
I believe that it is shown at 6:00PM local time on the west coast.
Of course. I could be wrong too, but I don't think so.

What with Bugs Bunny going against Elmer Fudd and Daffy Duck (even those with Daffy on his own always getting blown up, etc.) and the Road Runner with Wyle E. Coyote.
And how about Sam Sheepdog and Pepe Le Pew always chasing that poor cat who accidentally got that white paint stripe down her back?

- If I read this correctly, it sounds like this is a limited engagement lasting only 13 weeks after which W.W.W. or a different show may return to the lineup.
- But if the Stooges are on for more than 13 weeks, I hope MeTV shows ALL of the shorts including those with Joe. We (or at least I) like to see the complete catalog of Stooges shorts, just like I enjoy watching the color episodes of TAGS. Though maybe not as funny, it allows you to appreciate the entire body of work.
- If I was forced to choose a favorite 3rd Stooge, I guess it would be Curly but Shemp is a VERYCLOSE second. And Joe had some funny moments too.
- I really like the Stooges but agree that 6:00 PM on a Saturday night is an unusual time slot for them. Perhaps they can be designated as E/I and shown on Sunday mornings. No, probably not. :)
- I hope this doesn’t preclude a local channel here in the Boston area from continuing to show them on Sunday mornings.
Especially funny was the huge block of ice plummeting down that long stairway and the owner of the house being run over by it, as well as the "spring scene" (I won't say any more in case MeTV decides to air it - believe me, I laughed *so* hard until I couldn't laugh anymore).
1) Punch Drunks, 1934. The second stooge short ever made, which led to a long term contract. Curly plays Kayo Stradivarius, a boxer who goes into a punching frenzy whenever he hears "Pop Goes the Weasel". Moe is his manager, and Larry plays the song on the violin. When going crazy, Curly shouts, Woo woo woo woo woo woo.....
2) Horses' Collars, 1935. This is a western, with some great one-liners. But it is better known for "Moe, Larry, cheese". Curly goes crazy whenever he sees a mouse, and can only be calmed down by stuffing cheese into his mouth. When the bad guys have the stooges cornered, Curly sees a mouse, and beats up all the villains.
3) Grips, Grunts and Groans, 1937. Curly goes crazy every time he smells the perfume scent Wild Hyacinth. The boys are trainers for Bustoff, a wrestling champion. But they get him drunk before his big fight, and Curly has to impersonate him. Things are going badly in the ring until Curly smells the perfume and wins the fight.
4) Oily to Bed, Oily to Rise, 1939. Every time Curly makes a wish, it comes true. The boys save a widow when they strike oil on her land.
5) Boobs in Arms, 1940. The stooges beat up a man, but then join the army and find out he is their drill sergeant. They do the hilarious "manual of arms" bit. The next scene involves laughing gas, inhaled by the stooges, who defeat the enemy while laughing away.
6) Gents Without Cents, 1944. The stooges are struggling comedic actors, and do the "Niagara Falls" bit several times in the short. "Slowly I turned, step by step, inch by inch..."
7) Micro-Phonies, 1945. With the beautiful Christine McIntyre, who sings "Voices of Spring". Curly dresses up as a female singer, and lip syncs the words at a party.
You listed one of my faves GWC but I also like A Plumbing We Will Go. The ones you've listed are good, but this is not the definitive list. Others, of course, will disagree with you.
