The New Three Stooges
In 1965, Larry, Moe and Curly Joe, the infamous slapstick trio from the 1930’s and 40’s, with help from Cambria Studios decided to air an animated version of their live action show “The Three Stooges”. The show consisted of and was voiced by the three main characters Larry, Moe and Curly Joe, taking on different forms of employment and always screwing up and getting fired. The animated series followed very closely to the live action show and was considered a way to help the aging actors keep portraying their iconic roles as they grew older. Granted, Curly Joe replaced the original Curly, as Curly Howard passed away some 13 years before the animated show began. The show was a huge success and aired new episodes until 1973.
