And it looks like the best overall price (at this point) is DDD - $19.83, unless you purchase over $25 at Amazon.

And regarding this quote:

The Three Stooges are one of the most significant screen comedy teams of the 20th century, on par with Laurel and Hardy, Abbott and Costello, and Martin and Lewis
I think the only above mentioned group that is on par with The Three Stooges is Laurel & Hardy. Their comedies were ground breaking for their times.

I'm sure that would be more entertaining than the Mike Nelson commentary on the Legend release of "Swing Parade".

As found on Amazon.com & ThreeStooges.net:

To Stooge or not to Stooge, that is the question. For almost a decade since Sony began issuing The Three Stooges shorts on DVD, fans have been asking when chronological ordered sets would be released. During the last nine years, previous compilations have been a mixed bag of quality prints; odd pairings of titles; ill fated "themed" discs, and a color/B&W series. Some shorts were duplicated several times, while other films never saw the light of day. The number of shorts appearing on each disc steadily decreased. If you've felt burned by previous DVD releases that had splices, missing dialogue or deleted scenes, worry not.

Sony got the message. The Three Stooges Collection 1934-1936 is the first in a series of DVD's that presents the shorts in their original release order. For ardent fans, it's a knucklehead's dream. For the beginner, it is the proper way to be introduced to the legendary trio. Each short has been restored to its original running time.

The first 19 of these episodes are featured in this collection. But they don't look like they did on TV. Sony has lovingly restored each short to its original brilliance and the results are nothing short of spectacular. The quality of the restoration is on par with that of Disney, the Looney Tunes series and classic films like "Wizard Of Oz", "Casablanca", and "Singin' In The Rain."

I've seen each of these Curly shorts more times than I should admit to, and watching these newly mastered films is like seeing them for the first time. Gone are the hairline scratches, dust, pops and other debris commonly found on TV and previous VHS and DVD prints. The black and white resolution is rich and some of the shorts look like they have a glossy finish to them. On "Three Little Pigskins", the picture is so clear at times, I can see the beauty parlor sign behind the boys and read that a polish and fingerwave cost 79 cents. The picture quality is that pristine! Those glorious sound effects jump from my speakers. The oldest film on the set is 73 years, and it looks beautiful on a widescreen HD TV.

So, if you're still asking yourself the question: to Stooge or not to Stooge, the answer should be as predictable as a slap from Moe. Why, Soitinly!

I forgot all about this release, and since Best Buy is listing a $19.99 price for it on their site, I might just pick it up on Tuesday.

It's only 16.99 at Amazon. Obviously only good if you have Prime or want other stuff to get it up to $25 for free shipping.

Anyone else having trouble finding this set? I went to a Best Buy, Circuit City, Target, and a Meijer and no one had the set or a even a shelf tag for it. I went to an FYE and finally found 1 copy for the ridiculous price of $26.99, which I bought thinking I wouldn't find it anywhere else. Then I went to Walmart and found it there as well for only $19.96, so now I have to take back the other set to FYE. Anyone else having trouble finding the new Stooge set?

I ordered mine from Amazon once I noticed they werent advertising this in any of the flyers. I figured it would be tough to find so I just decided to avoid the hassle.

I had to search high and low and finally found one copy at Barnes & Noble. With the 20% discount and 10% member discount, it came out to 17.99. Not bad, but I'm pretty PO'd that it's not getting the visibility it deserves.

As reported here not all the stores carry them.
No ads anywhere that this was being released in magazines.
No contests as giveaways.

I got one of these for Christmas but haven't opened it. I like the Stooges, just haven't gotten a chance to crack it open. I really liked the packaging: a tin with a built-in speaker. I assume that's thew new set, right?

That's an older set. The new ones go in order and looks like this:
Volume One (1934-1936) 19 shorts altogether!

Really a shame that this didn't sell better. We finally get a quality set in order and few stores carry it.
