To my surprise i am enjoying the Joe Besser shorts much more than the Shemp shorts. Shemp's solo character is just too obnoxious and annoying for me to enjoy most of the time. Shemp is enjoyable when he is toned down. The story lines of the Shemp shorts are also very repetitious, they feel like remakes of each other when they are not. Joe Besser shows that he could have been a good third stooge! It was just the poor scripts used at the tail run of their contract with Columbia that makes them bad. The Joe De Rita shorts are a mixed bag, i enjoy the musical one the best yet Joe as little to do in it. Joe is also not bad clowning around in the kitchen, but oh that "Dennis The Menace" kid (I had to fast forward through that one)! I wonder if Hank Ketcham saw this kid when creating his Dennis the Menace character.

Me too. Besser carries the shorts all by himself and he is hilarious. Shemp is Shemp, and still funny, but much better as part of the Stooges.

I got my ultimate collection for the 190 shorts. I could probably sell my Rare Treasures disc to someone here for a fair price if anyone wants it. I don't see myself really watching it more than once anyway. Send me a PM. Thanks, Steve

Sent you a PM

Someone is once again selling the Rare Treasures DVD on Amazon, but the asking price is $32.99. For $12 more you can buy the entire Ultimate Collection, so it really makes no sense to pay that much of a premium for the Rare Treasures. Buy the Ultimate Collection and sell the rest (or give them away as gifts).

Insane.


Me, I'm perfectly happy with the $48.20 I got from Amazon for the eight sealed volumes.  Took all the pain of indecision away, and now I've got my complete mint set.  Posted Image

Absoultely ridiculous to pay that kind of money for the Rare Treasures DVD when for 12 bucks more, you get the whole set as long as it stays at the 45 dollar price range and last I checked, both Best Buy and Amazon have it at that pricetag. Unless that separate volume is 10-13 bucks, fine but anything above it, I'll pass and wait.

It looks like those listings for the Rare Treasures discs are all from 3rd party sellers who likely separated them from the box set and are looking for a profit.

I'll sell my rare treasures for $20 shipped with gift paypal if you don't mind me watching it once before I mail it. It's currently unopened.

Just in case anyone was wondering I took him up on this and offered an extra $5 for the box and I received them from Mr. Satch today. I figured I'd save him from a barrage of PMs by letting everyone know.
