The Three Stooges are one of the few 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.

* ObviouslyEvil: The villains of the WW2-shorts, who were usually japanese spies, fifth columnists and nazis. Even the ones who didn't 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.

* TheRuntAtTheEnd: In a brilliantly timed and executed visual gag in "Calling All Curs," the boys are forced to beat a hasty retreat when the dinner bell sounds at their dog hospital and a massive clusterfuck of pooches stampedes down the hall... followed after a brief delay by one lone scrawny little pipsqueak of a mutt.

Like many Hollywood successes, the Stooges came about their success largely through serendipity. The Stooges started out as second bananas to former vaudeville comic Ted Healy, and were not originally credited as Stooges. The original line-up consisted of Moe, Larry and Shemp Howard, Moe's elder brother. After making one film with Healy, 1930's ''Soup to Nuts'', Shemp launched a solo career as a comic and character actor. Jerome (who had no prior acting experience) was recruited, dubbed Curly despite (or perhaps because) of his shaved head, and the trio continued to appear in films with Healy.

A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCdZje_sTF0 movie]] was released on April 13, 2012. It was directed by the [[DumbAndDumber Farrelly Brothers]], appropriately enough. Described on the DVD as a love letter to the Stooges, the film recreates many of the trio's tropes, and adds a few more.

* GrandeDame: A very common character in the shorts, the stuffy Society lady whose party (for example) is invaded by the Stooges and becomes the venue for a gigantic pie fight. Often played by Symona Boniface, sort of a budget studio [[MarxBrothers Margaret Dumont]].
