The Three Stooges weren’t about to let time take its toll in 1965. Their bodies couldn’t handle the physical slapstick so they went the animated route with The New Three Stooges series. The plus for the show was that Moe, Larry and Curly Joe (from the movies) shot the live action the openings and closings in color. Finally people could see what color Larry’s hair was when Moe yanked it out. While the cartoons have come out in various DVD compilations over the years, The New Three Stooges Complete Cartoon Collection shall have all the live action and animated mayhem in one boxset when it arrives on October 15. Here’s the press release from Image/Mandacy Entertainment:
