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:
- 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.
- 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.
- Notice the shoes and such, many types of sneakers and work shoes still are with us.
