Norman Maurer Productions awards a license to Western Printing & Lithography, beginning a fifteen-year comic book publishing run for The Three Stooges. Western premieres the Stooges on an irregular schedule of two or three issues per year, as a rotating title in Four Color Comics, cover price $0.10.

The first issue was printed with two alternate back covers. The earlier printing featured a list of pun definitions titled Stooginary. Western went back to press, and a second edition back cover features a 2-part advertisement for the Columbia feature HAVE ROCKET WILL TRAVEL (1959) and the first 3 Stooges Fan Club, managed by Norman Maurer Productions.
