Three Stooges Quiz

The Three Stooges Quiz.

Supplying enough chuckles and eye-gouges to raise the American spirit during some of the country’s darkest days, The Three Stooges became a household name which has stood the test of time. These three knuckleheads were comedians who helped lay the foundation for the film industry. Even before that, they were accomplished performers of different talents on the stage.

Talents such as theirs were in high demand during the early blossoming of Hollywood. Because of their willingness to go all the way for the sake of a joke, a large fanbase gravitated around The Stooges. By looking back through their legendary catalogue of shorts and films, one can see snapshots of the rapid evolution of the film industry. Over and over again, The Three Stooges were at the forefront of the world of cinematic comedy. Controversy may have brewed surrounding the slapstick nature of their comedy, but their group weathered storm after storm. Even when members of their party passed away, The Stooges adapted and continued putting smiles on the faces of people the world over.

Just as Chaplin before them, The Stooges proved that comedy was a valid art form in the new world of feature films. By putting a full effort into their craft like Chaplin did before them, the Stooges kept the spark of humor alive in people’s hearts during turbulent times in world history. Today, they are remembered as some of the most famous comic actors of all time. This quiz seeks to honor their legacy as historical figures whose art manages to inspire generations nearly a century since it was made.
