* FunnyAneurysmMoment: ''Bedlam in Paradise'', where Shemp has a nightmare that he dies and comes back as a ghost, was released just a few months before Shemp died in real life. Even more upsetting is that this was a re-release of their earlier film, ''Heavenly Daze'' with some new scenes added in; ''Daze'' starts out with Shemp already in Heaven, but ''Bedlam'' includes a scene that actually shows his character's death.

** Worse in that regard was ''For Crimin’ Out Loud'', which was hit with this before ''release''. Simply put, this was a posthumous Shemp film, and the last with original footage of Shemp, and the “Remind me to kill you later” gag variation, where the usual response is “I’ll make a note of it”, has Shemp say, “I won’t have time later.”

Added DiffLines:

* LifeImitatesArt: In the short ''False Alarms'' Moe, Larry, and Curly are firemen. Curly lays the hoses out in the street while cleaning them, causing them to be run over by a streetcar. In Maine, some firefighters ran a hose over a railway, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0O7DP3i0ao with predictable results]], which wasn't helped by the department calling the wrong railroad company.

* HollywoodHomely: The women who go after Curly and Shemp tend to be this.

* HollywoodHomely: The women who go after Curly and Shemp tend to be this. Curly's dance partner in "Hoi Polloi", to name one, wears a tightly-pinned hairstyle, coke-bottle glasses and a pursed, "I just sucked a lemon dry" face. Her actress briefly drops that look to check her makeup and reveals herself to actually be quite attractive.

Added DiffLines:

** Any of their episodes involving Native Americans (such as ''Back to the Woods'' and ''Woops, I'm an Indian!'') are clearly a product of their time, and might make modern audiences uncomfortable.

** Stooges fans are split over the merits, or lack thereof, of Joe Besser's tenure as a Stooge. Although a respected actor in his own right, Besser is felt by some fans to have been a poor fit for the group, especially given his character's reluctance to be the trio's ButtMonkey like Curly and Shemp. As such he is often seen as the CousinOliver of the Stooges. Others, however, see him as a refreshing change from the usual Stooge type.



* VindicatedByCable: The Stooges ended up becoming more popular than they ever had been before in the 1960s once their shorts were moved to television.

Indeed, the very decision to award the Stooges a contract to do full-length films in the 1960s was a direct result of the popularity of their shorts on TV.



** That will definitely make it an UnintentionalPeriodPiece, but then again, the original shorts count as that, too.

** The stipulation that Moe couldn't hit Besser was what did it; people would've tolerated Moe only so long as his stupidity was punished accordingly, which it never was. Fans, then and now, are bewildered at Moe's lack of violence towards Besser.

* TakeThatScrappy: Moe using slapstick and physical comedy on the ''Jersey Shore'' cast.

to:

* TakeThatScrappy: Moe using slapstick and physical comedy on the ''Jersey Shore'' cast. cast functions as a double insult. On one hand, it's fun to see the cast get pummeled; on the other hand, it's a clear illustration of how much more relevant the Stooges are than modern reality TV shows. Think about it: two or three years after the film came out, the ''Jersey Shore'' characters are already dated and forgotten. Meanwhile, Moe's character (which has existed for the better part of a century) is still very much remembered, [[{{Symbolism}} giving a lot of meaning to his physical abuse of the cast members.]] In short, for all the complaints that the ''Jersey Shore'' cast dates the movie, [[FridgeBrilliance maybe that was the point.]]

** The angry husband/drill sergeant from ''Boobs in Arms'' frequently laments his terrible luck with a frustrated "Everything happens to ''me!''" His actor, Richard Fiske, was later drafted into service and sadly killed in action during WorldWarII.

** When it comes to the US, the Three Stooges are immensely huge in New England due to the fact that several New Englanders grew up with the Three Stooges playing every Sunday morning. Billy West and the Farrelly Brothers are amongst those New Englanders who have grown up with the Stooges and were influenced heavily by their comedic stylings.
