Quick Look: Three Stooges on Roku has 74 short films from from 1930s and 40s featuring the iconic slapstick trio The Three Stooges - Moe, Larry, and Shemp. Although the channel categorizes the films into "episodes" within four "seasons," this is misleading as the films were not released as TV series or in specific seasons.
The videos on this channel represent less than half of the 190 shorts produced by Columbia Pictures between 1934 and 1957. The channel lists 17 "Season 1" episodes, which are actually 17 of the 19 shorts released from 1934 through 1936. Season 2 has 22 of the 24 shorts released from 1937 through 1939. Season 3 picks up the last two 1939 films and continues through the first film of 1942, while Season 4 takes us through the remainder of 1942 through the first four films of 1944.
While not a complete Stooges filmography, this channel does offer a fairly good library of 1934 - 1944 productions. For those not familiar with the Shemp era (pre-Joe) one of the episodes available on this channel can be seen below.
