The Stooges Classic

I couldn’t help myself when I saw this. Several interesting things such as cultural references that place the Stooges most popular episodes in the period immediately after WWII:

  1. References to “this guy must be from outer space”; i.e., an alien. America was preoccupied with science fiction at the time – Buck Rogers, etc. Moe says this about Joe, meaning that he is acting strange.
  2. References to Matzha – The Stooges were Jewish and Jewish writers and Jewish humor dominated Tin Pan Alley and the writing of film and early TV. Still does I am proud to say that the only real humor is Jewish humor even when written and performed by gentiles.
  3. Notice the shoes and such, many types of sneakers and work shoes still are with us.
