* DisguisedInDrag: Used quite often. Especially blatant in these cases because most of the Stooges not only have very obviously male faces, but are... well, exceptionally ugly, even as men. Also, Curly, the largest Stooge, is the one who most frequently has to do this.

A MadeForTVMovie biopic about the Stooges produced by Creator/MelGibson came out in 2000. While it serves in large part as an homage to their comedy style, to the point of recreating several of their shorts, it also confronts many of the not funny parts of their careers, particularly Curly's health issues.

** This was actually a large part of what made the Stooges likeable. They're all incredibly stupid jerks. But underneath it, they never have any malice towards anyone. Even their antagonists, until they start actively doing something incredibly underhanded or hurting someone helpless.

* SpaceEpisode: A few during the [[TheScrappy Joe]] years.
* SpannerInTheWorks: In some shorts the Stooges, through their well-meaning blundering, would disrupt criminal activities. "Three Dumb Clucks" has the Stooges, while working to prevent their father from divorcing their mother and marrying a GoldDigger, halt an attempt on the old man's life from the GoldDigger conspiritors.

The Three Stooges are one of the few rare comedy acts of the black-and-white era that continue to attract fans and remain so firmly embedded in the popular culture that a fifteen second silent cameo depicting them as airport firefighters still provides one of the biggest laughs in ''ItsAMadMadMadMadWorld'' decades after their heyday. Their popularity is such that video games have been made about them all the way up to the GameBoyAdvance era. And while their broad slapstick has been often derided by critics, it's also a key reason why they're popular even in nations where English isn't spoken. They also had two {{animated adaptation}}s: a syndicated series in 1965, with live-action wraparounds between cartoons, and ''WesternAnimation/TheRobonicStooges'', a segment of Creator/HannaBarbera's ''Skatebirds''. Unfortunately, neither of these truly took advantage of The Stooges' already cartoon-like nature.

* FourTemperamentEnsemble: [[TheBully Moe]] is choleric, [[OnlySaneMan Larry]] is phlegmatic and [[ManChild Curly]] and Shemp are sanguine.
** In RealLife, it was otherwise: [[ThePerfectionist Moe]] was melancholic, [[TheCharmer Larry]] was sanguine, [[TheQuietOne Curly]] was phlegmatic, and Shemp was choleric.
