What Might've Been: Three Stooges Scrapbook (1960)

The Three Stooges----in a sitcom? Soitenly!

Well, it almost happened. Norm Maurer, son-in-law of Moe Howard, had tried to sell the following pilot, which was produced in 1960. However, no one bit on Three Stooges Scrapbook, and the animated segments would later be used for the cartoon shorts that did make it to air.

This was actually the 2nd pilot for the Stooges. 11 years earlier, Moe, Larry Fine, & Shemp Howard made a pilot that also went unsold......

Both pilots merit an A.
