An old Stooge, but still funny - VIDEO

three stoogesThe sketch I've placed below is from The Mike Douglas Show and features Douglas, Soupy Sales and Moe Howard. The sketch is amusing, though not laugh-out-loud funny, but you may like it more than I did. Really, my main reason for posting it is that I'm a Three Stooges fan and I've never seen any of the Stooges outside of their old movie shorts. Seeing Moe in thick glasses and gray hair is both kind of cool and kind of weird. It's "cweridool," if you will. Will you? Thank you.

In the sketch, which according to Mark Evanier is based on an old Stooges bit, Moe serves as a translator for the "Maharjah." Hilarity ensues.

Speaking of The Three Stooges, Spike TV airs episodes in the wee hours of the morning. They're always worth an occasional Tivoing if I do say so myself. I especially like the one where Moe gets upset and hits Larry and Curly.

Adam,

The way you write about the sketch gives me the impression you've never seen the old short done with Curley. I hope I'm wrong since it's hilarious and every true Stooges fan must see it, but if you haven't look for the short with the title, "Three Little Pirates". It's in there, it's great with Curley and I understand it's actually taken from the Stooges' old vaudeville act. Much better than the clip of Mike Douglas and Soupy Sales.

I'm not sure if I've seen the one where Moe gets angry and hits Larry and Curley though!

Someday the technology will finally be perfected so that it would be possible to insert Patrick Troughton of 'Doctor Who' into a Three Stooges short (or vice versa) and have Moe be mistaken for the Second Doctor....
