1992 & 1995 The Three Stooges Fright Night

This is a recreation of two Halloween TV specials that originally aired on TBS in 1992 and again in 1995. Starring The Three Stooges: Moe Howard, Larry Fine, and Curly Howard or Shemp Howard, a comedy act best known for their numerous short subject films that were made for Columbia Pictures between 1934 and 1959. The 1992 version of the Halloween special features the following four frightening Stooges shorts, "If a Body Meets a Body," "We Want Our Mummy," "Dopey Dicks," and "Three Pests in a Mess".

If a Body Meets a Body (1945) - look out for the funny Halloween related scene, the bird in the flying skull:

We Want Our Mummy (1939) - look out for the Curly dressed up as a mummy scene:

Dopey Dicks (1950) - look out for the mad scientist in need of human brains for his ghastly experiment:

Three Pests in a Mess (1945) - look out for the spooky cemetery scenes:

1995 The Three Stooges Fright Night

The 1995 version includes the first 2 shorts above: "If a Body Meets a Body," "We Want Our Mummy," plus the 3 following shorts: "Spooks!," "The Hot Scots" and "Malice in the Palace."

Spooks! (1953) This version is in Red Cyan 3D - look out for the mad scientist Dr. Jeckyl and his assistant, Mr. Hyde, who keep a gorilla for experimental purposes:

The Hot Scots (1948) - this short takes place in a spooky haunted castle:

Malice in the Palace (1949) - look out for Larry's cooking skills:

I love these guys so much. I don't remember seeing these specials air on Halloween but growing up in the 80's channel 38 in Boston would have a 6 hour Three Stooges marathon every New Years Eve.


  1. The Stooge shorts that aired on TBS for Halloween in 1992 along with "If a Body Meets a Body" and "We Want Our Mummy" were "Three Pests in a Mess" and "Dopey Dicks", not "Spook!", "The Hot Scots" and "Malice in the Palace".

    1. Thanks for the update! I updated the original post.

  2. what are some other 'halloween' types of 3 Stooges shorts? I remember loving those ones the most as a child.
