I've always liked the 3 Stooges.... but I mean, who doesn't?? To not like the Stooges is to not have a sense of humour! In 1982 I did my Grade 4 speech on the biography and life of Moe Howard!?? Who does that at age 9??
Those comedy teams of Abbott and Costello, the Marx Bros., The 3 Stooges, Chaplin, and Buster Keaton we're incredible. From an era long past, and duly missed, for our current generations don't really have any comedy teams that came close to these icons.
Anyways, here's a design I did of some of my childhood heroes....done in the style of UPA! I love that clean, crisp, and graphic look of those UPA toons so I thought I'd design them that way. I had so much fun I may do a series of vaudeville legends....next up? Abbott and Costello!
BETCHA DIDN'T KNOW: Moe's wife, Helen Schonberger, was a cousin of Harry Houdini.
