Slowly I turned, step by step...

One of the greatest routines of all times! Moe Howard was a comic genius. I love the Stooges. My kids were taught young about the Stooges. Nyuck, Nyuck Nyuck was one of my youngest first phrases.

My daughter is leaving for college on Friday (see a few threads down) and I cannot wait to show her this before she goes. It will bring back laughter and tears.

Thank you Huronbob. Got my vote for best post contest.

I am amused by my own discomfort. Moe, as a real person? Return thyself, funny ghost, to my past, where you belong!

Oh, man. I remember watching Moe Howard on the Mike Douglas show. I used to watch that show after school.

Thanks for this. I'm always amazed by that period of time in the 60's and 70's when actors and comedians who started in vaudeville were still with us and appearing on shows like this. It's almost like time travel.

Wow. That pie bit is still hilarious. I can't quite figure out why. But I couldn't help but laugh out loud. Even though I KNOW WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.

"We had a 24 year contract with Columbia."

Damn, Moe.
