* WritersCannotDoMath: In "Three Pests in a Mess", Curly calculates that, charging a penny for each fly caught, they would have to catch 100,000 flies with their flycatching machine to make 100 bucks. They would actually have to catch 10,000.

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 ''Film/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.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Three actually -- Joe, then Curly-Joe, and finally Emil. Joe and Curly Joe were Curly subs and Emil replaced Larry. Curly-replacing-Shemp-replacing-Curly was an aversion since Shemp and Curly were fundamentally different characters. The two Joes were subversions as well, as they had their own style and never tried to parody Curly, despite looking like him.

* InkSuitActor: In the 30s up to the 40s, the Stooges cameoed in animated cartoon form, usually from other studios. Warners used them in ''Porky's Hero Agency'' and ''Hollywood Steps Out''.

* 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.
