Trivia

Multiple endings

There are multiple endings, depending on the amount of money earned. Less than $5000: the bank takes back the orphanage; $5000-$8995: the rent is paid, but the orphanage still requires repairs; $9000-$19995: the orphanage is fully repaired; $20000+: the Stooges marry the daughters.

References

At the beginning of the NES version, the Stooges stand in front of the Ghostbusters II logo, and make comments about how they are in the wrong game.

References to the game

This game is featured in the movie Lethal Weapon 3 on Lorna Cole's (Rene Russo) computer. Part of her background in the film is that she's a Three Stooges fan.

Sound

The digitized voices and pictures used in this game come from real Three Stooges shorts.

On the PC, The Three Stooges was much more enjoyable on the Tandy/PCjr series over the traditional PC and clones because the sound chip was utilized quite well. Not only was it used for 3-voice music and sound effects, but for the digitized speech as well. This enabled the sound of Larry, Moe, and Curly to come through much clearer than through the conventional PC speaker.

Timothy Skelly

One of the game's designers was Timothy "Tim" Skelly. Skelly worked with Cinematronics to design and program many early 80's arcade games including Star Hawk, Star Castle, Armor Attack and more.
