** Probably inspired by a [[ArtImitatesLife real-life incident]]: When Moe tried to teach Shemp how to drive, Shemp crashed the car through the glass storefront of a barbershop. Shemp was too terrified to ever try driving again.

* ObviouslyEvil: The villains of the WW2-shorts, who were usually japanese spies, fifth columnists and nazis. Even the ones who didnt think it was a good idea to run around in full uniform on american soil, still walked around doing the heil Hitler salute in broad daylight, and one nazi spy in particular wore a giant iron cross medallion.

Trope-wise, it is hard to do {{slapstick}} without referencing the Stooges. They did it all. Wait. Here is the throw-down: If you can come up with a slapstick bit that was not done by the Stooges, the Wiki will award you a delicious, fresh-baked custard pie.[[note]]In your face. Let's not forget tradition![[/note]] Notably, the GroinAttack trope is not on this page. This could be an oversight or deliberate, due to [[UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode Hays Code]] enforcement. The movie definitely has a GroinAttack, but it's not the original Stooges...

* HeWentThatWay

to:

* HeWentThatWayHeWentThatWay: nearly inevitable whenever a Stooge short included a chase scene.
* HiddenDepths: Moe was a devoted husband and father and sold real estate when not filming or touring; Larry was a concert-quality violinist; Curly was extremely shy and introverted when not performing; Shemp had a solid career as a character actor in both comic an serious roles between his two gigs as a stooge.
