In my latest episode, the last one before Christmas, I discuss games based on The Three Stooges.  The PC game from 1987 is one of my all-time favorite games, period.  What were your favorite mini-games from that?  What are some Stooges memories you have?  Did you ever get banned from watching The Stooges as a kid?  I'd love to hear about it.  On behalf of my family, the gang here, and myself:  have a Merry Christmas and let's hope for a better 2021.

I played this on the NES and it was an absolute favorite of mine. The pie throwing was ok but I really enjoyed it when the soup and crackers stage showed up! In Rhode Island/southern Mass we had WSBK-38 run marathons every year of the Stooges and I never missed it. :)

Loved it on the Amiga...  Not sure how much of that was because I loved the Three Stooges in general tho.. ;-)

I remember playing this on my friend's IBM and enjoying it.  Then when I finally found it for my C64, it moved ridiculously fast and was much harder and I barely touched it.  Fun game though.

Loved the great Amiga version, I had a friend in college who really loved it and kept playing it until he saw all of the endings..  getting the stooges married was the best! haha..

I don’t recall if I ever got a successful ending with this or not. I know it got real tricky trying to avoid the mouse trap.

I spent a lot of time with my friend on this game and I can tell you, one of the biggest secrets is always and I mean always go out of your way to play the beat up the other stooges game.  This game makes no money that day but will allow you to slow down the hand which is crucial.  The big secret here  is that most players skip it a few times but the mousetraps get tough and you need the hand to select slower.
