''The Robonic Stooges'' is a half-hour SaturdayMorningCartoon from 1978. The show is -- well, ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Film/TheThreeStooges receive ''TheSixMillionDollarMan'' treatment in one of the strangest {{animated adaptation}}s ever. It originally aired as an extra segment on ''TheSkatebirds'', but got its own half-hour timeslot, with edited reruns of ''ClueClub'', that lasted 16 episodes. Junk dealers Larry, Curly, and Moe bumble around as crime-fighters with special bionic powers, who get instructions from their exasperated boss, Agent 000.

!!Tropes:
* AnimatedAdaptation
* BrainInAJar: Dr. Brainly's brain.
* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: L for Larry Fine, M for Moe Howard and C for Curly Howard. And that included the [[SceneTransition transition sequence]] (the LMC wipe where each crest opened up and the C shattered to introduce the next scene).
* CatchPhrase: In unison: "Robonic Stooges... awaaaaaayyy!!!"
** Or when Triple 0 appears, any one of them will pipe up, "Oh-oh, it's 0-0-0!"
* EitherOrTitle: The final episode was "Stooges, You're Fired." Reference sources have the episode with the Either Or title "The Day The Mirth Stood Still."
* {{Leitmotif}}: The Stooges' most used theme song, "Three Blind Mice," is used in the opening titles and sporadically in the episodes when they appear.
* NoFourthWall: Zig-zagged in "Jerk and the Beanstalk": The Stooges are faced with dealing with a giant moth, so out at sea, Moe calls for the animators to turn the moth into a giant fish. They turn it into a shark.
* NotQuiteStarring: Sadly [[EnforcedTrope enforced]] by that time -- none of the original Stooges were alive in 1978.
* OnlySaneMan: Agent 000, though it's very sorely tested.
* ProjectedMan: Agent 000
* ShoutOut: In "Dr. Jekyll and Hide Curly", Dr. Jekyll turns the backs of the Stooges' heads into evil Hydes. Using a chemistry set, they try to make an antidote. On the first try, they turn the backs of their heads into the MarxBrothers.
** In another episode, WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo appears in a page of a paint-by-numbers coloring book. In yet another, Woofer and Wimper from ''WesternAnimation/ClueClub'' are seen on wallpaper.
* TakeOverTheWorld: Stock villain motivation, in particular, Professor Cluck.
* TitleByNumber: When the segment broke off from ''Skatebirds'' to become a separate show, it was renamed ''The Three Robonic Stooges.''
