[[WMG: Curly is bald because Moe yanked out all his hair.]]
We see Moe yank wads of Larry's hair out from time to time, but because he doesn't abuse Larry as much, Larry is still only semi-bald. This is also supported by the occasions where Moe tries to pull Curly's hair, as if it were a reflex, but finds nothing to grab ahold of. And his nickname "Curly" may have been given to him because he used to have curly hair. [[note]] (This WMG applies only to the shorts of course, not RealLife.)[[/note]]

[[WMG: The Three Stooges are Toons in disguise.]]
This goes with a WMG on the ''WMG/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' page. They're wearing human-like costumes, kind of like Judge Doom was.
** This might explain a very, very bizarre audio play {{Crossover}} in which the Stooges and WesternAnimation/YogiBear meet [[Film/DrNo Doctor No-No]]. Yes, it exists.

[[WMG: The Three Stooges are Toons trapped in the real world.]]
That explains why they can't be seriously injured by stuff that would give them a trip to the hospital (I.E. Getting hit in the head with a bottle) Or getting '''''killed''''' with stuff that would normally render them dead. (I.E. Falling from a 20 story hotel)

[[WMG: The insane man from the short "[[Recap/TheThreeStoogesMenInBlack Men in Black]]" is Professor Theodore von Scharzenhoffen from the Creator/LaurelAndHardy short "Film/TheMusicBox"]]

They're both played by the same actor, Billy Gilbert. "Men in Black" takes place shortly after Professor Schwarzenhoffen has been driven insane by the antics of Creator/LaurelAndHardy.

[[WMG: The stooges have been reincarnated all through history.]]
Hence we get episodes where they're cavemen, or in ancient Rome, or in UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar.

[[WMG: Alternatively, the Stooges are Immortals a la Highlander]]
[[Series/{{Highlander}} Duncan MacLeod]] probably knew them back in the day.
* More like [[Film/XMenOriginsWolverine Sabertooth and Wolverine.]] TheMovie throws in a PlotMandatedFriendshipFailure that may have replayed once a century for them.

[[WMG: Alternatively, their [[IdenticalGrandson identical ancestors]].]]

[[WMG: Curly is a JustForFun/TimeLord.]]
Every wonder why The Stooges are in different time eras? This might be how they are able to be in the Roman era, then suddenly to Caveman times. Also, Curly is able to regenerate into Shemp, Joe, and Curly Joe.

[[WMG: Shemp will appear in {{the movie}} as a cameo.]]
The Three Stooges was always Moe, Larry, Curly, and Shemp.
* Jossed. They do have a guy called Teddy, though.

[[WMG: The Three Stooges takes place in a SharedUniverse with every other old slapstick comedy series.]]
A spinoff of the Creator/LaurelAndHardy-related WMG above. The shorts of Creator/CharlieChaplin, the Creator/MarxBrothers, Creator/LaurelAndHardy, Creator/BusterKeaton and the stooges are all interconnected, and many times secondary characters played by the same actors are actually the same character.

[[WMG: Whenever Larry, Curly or Shemp hurt Moe, it's never an accident.]]
All of the {{Plank Gag}}s, the mis-aimed pies, and other accidents that would seem to be caused by their stupidity, are actually a passive-aggressive way to get back at Moe for his violence toward them. They just play dumb afterwards to try and get away with it. This is evidenced by the occasional times that they laugh when Moe gets hurt.
