Decades Multicast TV Network Pays Tribute To The Comic Legacy Of The Three Stooges


DECADES Network, the multicast TV network from Weigel Broadcasting Co. and CBS Television Stations, announces a special four-day tribute to the slapstick comic legacy of The Three Stooges. The event is scheduled to air Monday, August 29 through Thursday, September 1, in honor of the 33rd anniversary of The Three Stooges receiving their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. To celebrate, DECADES will present the broadcast television premiere of a nine-part Three Stooges documentary HEY MOE! HEY DAD!, as well as a collection of The Three Stooges movies.

For the first time on broadcast television, DECADES presents the premiere of HEY MOE! HEY DAD! from C3 Entertainment, Inc., The Three Stooges® brand owner, and produced by Frank Basile’s Fresh Produce Productions. The nine-part documentary goes behind the comedic curtain and tells the backstory of all the members of The Three Stooges, covering a hundred years from the perspective of narrator Paul Howard, Moe Howard’s son. Besides the rare footage and photos, the docu-series also features interviews with family members, friends and Hollywood celebrities, including Leonard Maltin, Billy West, Pat Cooper, and Whoopi Goldberg.

Ani Khachoian, Executive Vice President of Licensing, Merchandising and Distribution for C3, shares her enthusiasm for the program; “Three Stooges fans everywhere will want to watch and enjoy this great nine-part miniseries that covers the complete history of the greatest comedy team of all time.”

Known as the “Masters of Mirth, Merriment and Mayhem,” The Three Stooges are beloved the world over, and no tribute to their comedy is complete without showcasing their slapstick talents from classic films and shorts. DECADES will present the feature length Stooge antics in The Three Stooges Meet Hercules (1962), The Three Stooges in Orbit (1962), The Three Stooges Go Around the World in a Daze (1963) and Stop! Look! And Laugh! (1960). From the first “Why I oughta”, to the next “Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk” to the final “What’s the idea?”, DECADES pays tribute to the comedy genius of The Three Stooges.
