Sentimental, Sweet Stooges On This Classic Children's LP
Anthony G Pizza | FL | 08/26/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)
"The Three Stooges must have been gratified by the late 1950s to have won over a new audience, via TV, to their then 25-year-old classic short films. It brought their classic comedy to new fans even to this day, explaining why this LP, sub-titled, "The Nonsense Songbook," has remained in print 40 years after its original Coral Records release. Alhtough most of the Stooges' fun came from seeing, not hearing, them slap and crash their way through every situation, this LP is more for the kids who saw their second set of delightful, full-length childrens' films ("Snow White and The Three Stooges," "The Outlaws Is Coming.") It's wonderful hearing "The Alphabet Song" again, hearing Larry substitute "darn" in "Three Little Fishes," even their sweet versions of "Chickory Chick" and Fanny Brice's "Mairzy Dotes." Lew Douglas' orchestrations recall nothing so much as the classic cartoon scores of Winston Sharples and Carl Stalling.Only one regret...that, despite Curley Joe DeRita's fine performance here, the original and best Curly passed not only before being able to sing on this record, but before he could be recognized for the comic genius he was. Here's hoping MCA, Rhino, or some other heritage-minded music firm re-releases the Stooges' original "Swingin' The Alphabet," "She Was Brred In Old Kentucky," and the other delightful songs from more than 40 years of classic Stooge films. Recommended for kids and Stooge fans everywhere."
This is pure, innocent Stooges-fun that makes me smile.

"I've been a fan of the Three Stooges career for years. I have a copy of this album on vinyl and am glad to see it finally reissued on CD. I gave it five stars because I truly believe that fans of the Three Stooges, even Curly Howard purists, will enjoy these recordings that Moe Howard and Larry Fine made with 1960's-era third stooge, Joe DeRita. My favorite songs in the collection are "Mairzy Doats," and the reworking of "The Alphabet Song," originally performed with Curly in the Columbia Pictures two-reel comedy, "Violent is the Word For Curly." "The Madcap Musical Nonsense" CD speaks to the inner-stooge in all of us. It is innocent, child-like fun that will bring smiles to all the young-at-heart. I hope more of the Stooges LPs make the transition to compact disc. God bless the Stooges wherever they may be."
Fun CD For Kids and Adults Who Love Vintage Songs

"The Stooges sound pretty good together in this combination of fun songs. I was searching for the 20's song, "The Merry-go-round Broke Down" (which eventually became the theme song for Looney Tunes cartoons), and came across the Stooges album on the Net (which included this song -- and very well done, I might add). I never knew they put out an album!
This was orginially produced in 1960, well after high fidelity, so the CD sounds great. Since it was done in 1960, the third Stooge at the time was Curly Joe. But they do one of my favorite songs from a Stooges short (originally done with Curly in the late 30's), "The Alphabet Song" (you know, B E be, B I Bi, B I bicky bi B O Bo Bicky Bi Bo B U Bu Bicky Bi Bo Bu") Such fun. And, between the song and downloading the above lyrics from the net, I can FINALLY sing it!
Another favorite is "Mairzy Doats." Aba Daba Hooneymoon is fun, and so is the ragtime, "Play A Simple Melody." Some other songs are more for kids (the original target audience). But, all in all, a CD worth buying."
