Do you remember the Three Stooges? Of course you do — because good luck finding a soul on the planet that doesn’t know who they are. They’re iconic!

The Three Stooges were an American entertainers and comedy team active from 1922 until 1970.

They are best known for their 190 short subject films by Columbia Pictures that have been regularly airing on television since 1958.

Six stooges appeared over the act’s run (with only three active at any given time): Moe Howard and Larry Fine were mainstays throughout the ensemble’s nearly fifty-year run and the pivotal “third stooge” was played by  Shemp Howard, Curly Howard, Shemp Howard again, Joe Besser and “Curly” Joe DeRita.

You can go read the rest of their story on Wikipedia or you can just laugh at the video of Larry, Moe and Curly sing “Swingin’ The Alphabet.”
