Top Ten Three Stooges Episodes

The Three Stooges are the greatest comedy team of all time but it is really, really hard to pick out their best.
The Top Ten
1 Disorder In The Court

Curley "vernacular?... That's a derby! "
Balliff to curley "Do you swear to tell the truth and nothing but the truth!... Curley" No, but I know all the woids"
Larry, while playing jacks on floor while crown stands around watching outside the court room "He was for onesies I was for twosies ".. Moe, Oh yeah, well heres fivesies " and punches them both in there eye.

This is their most famous episode including their most famous "Take of your hat" scene.

Curly on the stand is hilarious. Also great scene with the lady dancing in the court..

Brilliant. Raise your right hand.. Take off your hat..

2 A Plumbing We Will Go

This is by far the funiest episode of the Three Stooges! No matter how many times I see this, I crack up histerically. Moe's line - 'Well we had to forget something or we wouldn't be plumbers! And Larry trying to shut off the water by digging a huge hole out on the lawn... "I;ll find this or else". The classic of all is curly in the bathtub surrounding himself with pipes! This episode will live on forever!

I think this was the funniest episode because most laughs and the famous scene "This house has sure gone crazy".

Good lord. When Larry's head pokes up out of the middle of the yard, I almost died laughing.

Funniest episode in my opinion, why was this episode never colorized?

3 Brideless Groom

Love Shemp trying to teach a horrible singer and the scene where Moe and Shemp get tangled up in the phone booth.

"'Moe where's your hat." and "Get your hand out of my face. That's not my hand that's your hand. Alright you asked for it." Shemp then bites his own hand.

4 No Census, No Feeling

Stooges on football field with ice cream vendor.

Moe: Now listen here. You take the right, I'll take the left.
Larry: Okay.
Moe: What do you take?
Curly: I'll take vanilla.
Moe: Ok...(double take) What? You don't like chocolate?
Curly: I still like vanilla.
Moe: Then have some. (puts ice cream in curly's face.

The back and forth with Moe and Larry that results in Moe shrieking and beating on the random man gets me every time!

"How many in the family? "
"I was one of a litter of three."
"Don't tell me you were the one they kept! "
"Nah, I'm the one they threw away."

Gets me literally every time haha

This one is really lesser known, but it is really funny besides having a LOT of great stunts in it.

5 Goof on the Roof

Truly classic goofiness that made the stooges so great. Definitely my favorite.

6 Loco Boy Makes Good

Best pie fight ever

7 They Stooge to Conga

The most violent episode with curly howard! I like this episode as well! I made a YouTube video with a scene!

8 Yes, We Have No Bonanza

I think I wet myself laughing to this episode.

9 An Ache In Every Stake

One of Curly's best, if not the best. Relaying the ice up the stairs. Stuffing the turkey, dancing with the spring attached to his pants. Shaving some ice. It goes on and on.

Best episode ever! I took my kids to the actual stairs from this episode and we recreated the whole scene. It was classic!

10 Ants in the Pantry

Top Shelf Stoogery, the boys bring the pests, then destroy the place
Exterminating them. Almost as good as the Plumbers!

The Contenders
11 Violent is the Word for Curly

Moe, Larry,... CHEESE!
It took a variety of cheeses to calm Curly after he was sparked off
By seeing a mouse. The boys put this to use as pro wrestlers!

12 Hoi Polloi (1935)

Classic short pitting the guys vs high society... Of note, Curly's comment during the dancing lesson: "It ain't the dippin', it's the countin' that's got me..

The dance class segment 6 minutes in is truly hysterical.

Best ever! These guys were in a class by themselves.

13 Sing a Song of Six Pants

If you don, t think punching each other is not funny, then why did you watch tis episode, and why are you on here? Of course there stupid, that whats the word stooge means. Do you suffer under the idea what is on film is real? That's why it's funny, theny never get bruised, and what don't you understand about pressing a guys pants? The stooges did it while he was still in them, that's why there stooges, and that's why it's funny. pure escape, and no one dies, and woman and children are never hurt.

I think that hitting and punching each other is NOT funny! It these things happen in real life, there would be lawsuits and more violence. We have enough. Take off the stooges. They are terrible. And this episode is STUPID. Pressing a guy's pants is ignorant and dumb! Who wrote this crap?

The glue in Moe's eye and the ensuing removal are hilarious!

14 Oily to Bed, Oily to Rise
15 Dizzy Pilots

Moe pulling Curly from the plane: "Hey, you nitwit. Don't saw the wings. You saw the garage. "
Curly: "I SEE the garage but I don't SAW the garage. You are speaking incorrectly. You are mortering the King's engrisshh. Et Cetra. See? Saw? See? Saw? "

Moe getting covered in a rubber suit is just classic...

16 Grips, Grunts and Groans

Give me a drink!

17 Malice in the Palace

The cat and dog scene still has me in tears from laughing. Showed my 11 year old who never heard of the 3 Stooges and he absolutely loved it!

Needs to be in top 10, somehow!

18 Boobs in Arms

All time favourite episode, especially the greeting card gag early in the film.

19 Cash and Carry

When the motor is falling from the sky after attempting to crank it over, Moe says to Curley who fails to catch it.."If you had an ounce of initiative you would have caught it! "...
And. When there in the house looking for the wall (walla walla on the map! ) were captain kids kid hid his treasure, Curley yells "fore" and the sledge hammer he swings go through the wall and hits mo on the other side" perfect timing. this one has it all snappy lines and psychical mahem.

20 Higher Than A Kite

Their is actually nothing that makes me realize the mindless WORSHIP that Hitler recieved from the Nazis. And it is a comedy!

21 Booby Dupes
22 Slippery Silks
23 Oil's Well That Ends Well
24 Three Smart Saps

This is the greatest Three Stooges short if for nothing else than this immortal exchange:

Tall Female Dancer: Do you rumba?
Curly: Only when I drink a bicarbonate.. Nyuk nyuk nyuk

25 You Nazty Spy!

This one comes before "I'll Never Heil Again" and has the first American portrayal of Hitler ever done by Moe.
