For more than 50 years—in 200 comedy shorts, 25 feature films, and thousands of television, onstage, and personal appearances—The Three Stooges dished out their classic comedy mayhem to the delight of audiences of all ages around the world. And for the last 30 years, one book, indicative of the trio’s enduring popularity and lasting legacy, has given fans the details they crave: The Three Stooges Scrapbook.

This lovingly assembled tribute to those cinematic clowns is a meticulously researched and written account of every aspect of the Stooges’ lives and careers, copiously illustrated with more than 400 photographs and illustrations throughout. It is without doubt the most accurate and complete account of the Stooges’ career and history ever written.

The only book to feature exclusive interviews with Stooges Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Joe Besser, and Joe DeRita and family members and friends, this authorized history is jam-packed with things Stooge fans want to know: intimate biographies; an in-depth, complete team history; information on Three Stooges merchandise, comic books, record albums, television appearances, and impersonators; and a filmography with details on every one of their films.

Now updated, The Three Stooges Scrapbook provides the most comprehensive coverage of the trio to date with a stunning wealth of material, including personal memories and reminisces, findings and revelations, historical facts and tidbits, and other addenda that will delight fans of all ages.
