** SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Especially since that film's predecessor, ''You Natzy Spy!'', was one of the first films to openly mock Hitler.
** It was THE FIRST. (They beat Chaplin to it by 9 months)

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

* BrokenBase: The short ''[[Recap/TheThreeStoogesCuckooOnAChooChoo Cuckoo in a Choo-Choo]]'', hands down. This is the short in which Larry is playing a Marlon Brando-esque character who [[CrazyAwesome stole a passenger car off a moving train]], just so his girlfriend's sister can get her [[UpperClassTwit rich drunken boyfriend]] Shemp to propose, because then ''they'' can get married. Unfortunately Shemp is in love with [[InterspeciesRomance Carey the giant canary]] who exists only in his booze-sodden dreams, and who is played by some poor soul in an [[NightmareFuel utterly hideous]] suit. And Moe is a railroad detective in love with Larry's girlfriend's sister (the one they want to get hitched to Shemp) who finds them and tries to get rid of Shemp so he can marry the sister. There is no middle ground on this one, every Stooges fan either [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome thinks it's terrific]] or sees it as the worst thing they ever did.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The Three Stooges are fairly popular in Spanish speaking countries, where they are called "Los Tres Chiflados".

** A more straight example would be in the failed TV pilot ''Jerks of All Trades''. As the stooges are "painting" the room, their client asks them if they could touch up a painting of her daughter on the wall. Moe walks up to it and winds up peeling the picture off to reveal a picture of the same woman, only with less clothing. [[AllMenArePerverts The Stooges continue peeling pictures off the frame (as the woman gets gradually less clad each time they do)]] until it ends with a picture of a NightmareFace glaring at them, and inexplicably a boxing glove breaks through the painting and socks Moe. After this happens, no attention is brought to the painting (or where the boxing glove for that matter) again. (And the client does not notice that the painting of her daughter has been replaced with that of a monster.)

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: In ''Ants in the Pantry'', the short involved the Stooges trying to rid a house of pests (that they pre-infested to get business). Long story short, a mouse ends up crawling down the back of an unfortunate party guest, who promptly starts jumping and stomping in an attempt to get it out. The Stooges approach and, seeing a rhythm in the poor man's stomping, start clapping along and quickly start dancing, seemingly abandoning their search until the mouse reappears.
** Tended to be a RunningGag, as anyone doing this could distract the boys. It could also be from singing.

* RecycledScript: Several shorts had this, usually with StockFootage incorporated in. Once Shemp replaced Curly, several remakes of Curly's old shorts were done with the new stooge, and this was repeated with Joe Besser.
