(Heritage Productions/Cambria Studios/Normandy III 1965)

The Three Stooges, who began their career in vaudeville and moved on to enjoy success in films, were the featured players in this series of five-minute cartoons from producer Dick Brown and his Cambria Studios. The unique aspect of this series was that the actual Stooges themselves voiced the cartoons and appeared in 2 ½ minute live action wraparounds before and after each cartoon.

The cartoons showcased the Stooges' trademarked slapstick style of humor, but the violence was toned down for the younger audience. There were 156 cartoons produced, but only 40 live-action segments that were rotated throughout the package.

The live segments were a real treat to Stooge fans, but they proved to be the undoing for the series itself. Because the number of live scenes filmed was considerably fewer than the number of animated shorts, when viewers tuned in and saw a repeated live-action scene, they assumed the cartoon was a repeat as well, and subsequently changed the channel.
