Saturday Morning Cartoon: The New Three Stooges
I have to admit I don't get the Three Stooges. I have an idea of where in their routines I am meant to laugh, but the giggles never come. Instead, I always watch them wearing my confused face. That said, I do admire how well they translate to cartoons. I suppose it makes sense, as their whole act seemed to be about being living cartoons--no? This 'toon--called Noisy Silent Movie (1965)--is from The New Three Stooges, which was a syndicated television series from 1965-1966. It's actually a mix of animation and live action, including bookend scenes with the the Stooges themselves in the flesh.
