The Three Stooges were an American vaudeville and comedy act of the mid–20th century best known for their numerous short subject films, still syndicated to television. In films, the Stooges were commonly known by their first names: "Moe, Larry, and Curly" or "Moe, Larry, and Shemp", among other lineups depending on the films; there were six active stooges, five of whom performed in the shorts. Moe and Larry were always present until the very last years of the ensemble's forty-plus-year run.
