Three Stooges - "Spooks!" (in 3-D)

Interesting fact - the first 3-D comic book was created by Joe Kubert, Leonard Maurer and Norman Maurer. Norman Maurer was the son-in-law of none other than Moe Howard of the Three Stooges.

This has absolutely nothing to do with today's clip - the 1953 Stooges short Spooks!, which was shot and presented here in 3-D.

3-D was so hot when this film was made, that Columbia planned on making all future Stooges shorts in that format. They made two - this one and Pardon My Backfire - before realizing the error of their ways.

Spooks! has aired for years on television in 2-D. It's always been kind of disconcerting to see Larry take a run at the screen for no apparent reason.

Am told you can watch the clip in 3-D with the proper glasses.
