      Restored, preserved and now shared with the world. This collection of the 190 Columbia Shorts starring the boys now includes 28 shorts made by Shemp Howard, Joe Besser and Joe Derita. The credit for the restoration goes to Grover Crisp and his outstanding crew of film preservationists. All the shorts were preserved onto film stock and mastered onto digital formats. This allows for the films to be projected either from 35mm film sources and digitally from DCP or DVD. The reason these made it to home video is due to the tenacity of one individual; an executive at Sony who knows the importance of the "solo" shorts to the fans of the Stooges. He has been in the industry for over thirty years, making sure that many films were saved from extinction and, for the fans, pushing hard for their exhibition in revival houses and on home screens. With this box set of 218 two reel comedies (the largest complete collection of short subjects ever released by a major distributor), we all owe a deep debt of gratitude to Michael Schlesinger for staying true to his convictions and pursuing Sony to release these vaulted gems. Thank you Michael and Grover. You have given us all a great gift.

      Revisiting old friends for the first time!

      I am 62 years-old and remember when the boys first came to TV (Channel 11, WPIX in NYC) in the late 1950s. I watched them five days a week and loved them then. Hadn't seen much of them in about 50 years but on rare occasions, when I did catch a short, it was pretty well beaten up but I laughed out loud just the same. Watching these beautifully restored and presented DVDs in order, I cannot believe how well I remember so many, especially of the early ones. When viewed from the perspective of age, they resonate as a time capsule as well as being laugh-out-loud funny in their own right. Politically incorrect to the extreme, Columbia had done the Stooges right by letting the boys be themselves in a pristine presentation that sets the mark for compilations (are you hearing me Universal? Groucho, Chico, Harpo (and even Zeppo and Gummo) are probably all spinning in their graves for the way you've presented their classics!). This set shows the way it should be done!!!!

      I enjoyed this collection Very Much . To have one of the early movies and have the First Stooges movie (not on DVD) was good as the early cartoons with moe, larry and curly was great !! I also enjoyed the early (before shemp re - joined the Stooges and Joe Besser with Joe De Rita) was a hoot and just like watching early history of the Boys !! It really gives you an understanding of what their comedy was like. I would recommend it to any Stooge Fan and some one who you would like to introduce them to the Stooges ! WOO WOO (EH, MOE WOULD SAY WHATSA MATTER WITH YOU !!!!)

      This is simply the very best comprehensive collection of Three Stooges films on DVD. I've purchased many Three Stooge DVD collections over the years and have always been disappointed by either the quality of the video or the fact that the collection doesn't really include ALL of their films. Another thing I really like about this collection is that the films are presented in the order they were produced - a GREAT feature! If you are looking for THE comprehensive and quality DVD collection, THIS IS IT!!!

      All The Stooges You'll Ever Need!

      If you're a Three Stooges fan, this set is a must-have. 20 disks featuring over 190 shorts, cartoons, and two full-length feature films (Rockin' In The Rockies & Have Rocket Will Travel). This set combines previous individual disk releases, and saves you at least half of what you'd pay if you had to order each volume separately. Over 60 hours of Three Stooges mayhem in one box! Keep it away from the kids, or you'll be seeing lots of slapping, hitting, and eye-poking! Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk

      I started purchasing this series one volume at a time before I discovered that the entire series could be purchased as a set. What caught my eye was the great price of $29.99. Each individual volume cost $14.99 separately. No debate here. Buy the entire set for a great price. The films are presented in chronological order and are uncut. The shorts have great video and audio quality. If you are a fan of the Stooges, pick this set up. You won't regret it and have hours and hours of viewing enjoyment.

      I've always loved The Three Stooges, and this collection has them all! It is so much fun to watch them from the very beginning; in the very first episode, I hadn't realized that they were calling "Curly", "Jerry". Thats because his name is Jerry! I mean, it makes sense, I just always referred to him as Curly. I suggest picking this set up if you love the Stooges - it's a great price and great "fine"d (because Larry's name is Larry Fine - get it! Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk).

      Did you ever want to revisit those funny moments from your childhood? Well, this "Ultimate Collection of the Three Stooges" enabled me to once again see those stupid but hilarious slapstick routines that I remembered from my boyhood. Just about everything is remarkably re-mastered from the early 30's til the late 1950's and also included are what they call "Rare Treasures" from the Columbia Pictures vault. What a great price to bring back such funny shtick from the 3 Stooges!
