My young son was first introduced to the Three Stooges during the film Short Circuit, where they make a brief appearance. We then spent the next half an hour watching numerous u-tube clips that left me in tears and him in mild amusement and incredulity.
I bought this DVD for him as an introduction into their comedy genius. While it is very funny, he was a little disappointed that his 'favourite' character Curly only appears in one of the four episodes (despite the front sleeve image, though the product description does mention it - I now find). Shemp is in the others instead.
I hadn't heard of him before and guess Curly replaced him early on for the bulk of their films. I don't regret the purchase but will be looking for something more Curly in the future.
