14. The Three Stooges

Network: Syndicated
Air Dates: June 7, 1934–April 6, 1959

Moe, Larry, Curlywhat a bunch of dumbasses. Poking each other in the eyes, falling over one another, beating each other up, and for what? Fame? Fortune? International recognition as being the founding fathers of physical comedy? Ugh, genius. Genius, idiots. Try to think of a slapstick act that the Three Stooges didn't do first, in one of the 190 shorts. Their shorts have never left TV since first airing in 1958that's staying power.—TA
