One of the most successful comedy trios from the 1930s-1970s. The original line-up was Moses Horwitz, Louis Feinberg, and Sam Horwitz, better known as Moe Howard, Larry Fine, and Shemp Howard. After performing in Vaudeville for awhile, Shemp went into the movie business, and was replaced by Moe and Shemp's brother Jerome 'Babe' Horwitz, who would become better known as Curly Howard. The Three Stooges made many short films together, most of them with Curly, untill 1947, when he suffered a stroke and was replaced by Shemp.

The stooges are considered one of the great masters of comedy and are still much loved to this day.
