Martin Short hosts this ABC-TV tribute to the film legacy of The Three Stooges, featuring brief clips taken from more than half of the comedy team's Columbia short subjects and several of their feature films. Filmed at Glendale CA's Alex Theatre. Special guests include Barry Williams who performs The Stooges Bunch, a musical history of the Stooges sung to the tune of THE BRADY BUNCH theme, and Little Richard performing The Curly Shuffle.

The special also highlights Howard family home movies, with clips of Moe, Shemp, Jerry, Larry Fine, Helen Howard, Babe Howard, Elaine Ackerman Howard, Sol & Jennie Horwitz, Joan Howard and Mort Howard.

Little Richard performs The Curly Shuffle on a "Shemp & Sons" grand piano... actually, a Steinway with a "Shemp & Sons" prop plaque.

This is an excellent show that was 1st broadcast in 1997. Martin Short does a great job hosting, and is very funny (as usual) himself. It shows mostly very short clips of Stooge classics. They also show lots of home movies of the boys and their famlies. In between showing the Stooge clips there are two musical numbers, with Little Richard doing "The Curly Shuffle" being the better of the two. Lots of Stooge history and information also, very lovingly and respectfully presented. And for all of us wolves, pleanty of slick chicks. The grand finale is a huge pie fight. I'm glad I taped it when it was broadcast and I recently converted it to DVD. We need more shows like this one to tell the truth about the Stooges, that they are the greatest comedy team of all time and some of the best comics in the history of American film in general.
