When I was a kid, the Three Stooges were the best thing on TV. (Well, to me anyway).

They were on every weekday after school on Channel 11 in St. Louis on a show called Captain 11.

I asked my mom how old I was when we got our first TV. She said I was probably about 10 or so. There were four stations at that time and Channel 11 catered to kids, so that was my brother's and my favorite channel.

They used to worry that we would run around poking each others eyes out. That never happened! I wish Curley was in this video but I'm pretty sure he was dead by this time.

Here are the Three Stooges on the Danny Thomas show.
