Old TV with Very Physical Comedy

WHO-TV will "soon" be adding a new channel, "Antenna TV on 13.3".  Looks like they will air OLD TV shows.  Like my friend's favorite "The Three Stooges".  We discussed the classic moments that appear in many of the episodes: 
Curly (the bald one) lies on the floor and runs around in a circle while crying woo woo woo woo woo.  Curly leaps up and down in an 'I'm a horsey' manner and slaps his face from forehead to chin crying woo woo woo woo woo. (Curly's a little high on the bonkers meter.) There is always an argument and often Moe (bowl cut) will grab a Stooge's nose and slap it in a downward motion.  Apparently this hurts.
Curly also says 'Soitenly' in a loud but cheerful voice. (My friend had to research the spelling). And I almost forgot nyuck nyuck nyuck nyuuck nyuck!  And "Oh!  Wise Guy!"  As you can see Curly is a lexiconical force to reckon with.  Ah, Stooges.  They ain't pretty, but they're willing to fall down a lot.

Our collection of Three Stooges productions.  An embarrassment of riches.
