All surviving negative and positive materials for “Hello Pop” — a Three Stooges short in early two-color Technicolor that MGM released in September, 1933 — were believed destroyed in a 1967 vault fire at the Culver City studio (that also claimed Todd Browning’s “London After Midnight” and most outtakes from “The Wizard of Oz.”) Fifty-five years later, the Vitaphone Project — a New Jersey-based group whose mission has expanded from reuniting long-missing soundtrack discs for early musical shorts with mute prints in archives to worldwide searches for missing features and shorts from the post-Vitaphone era — was contacted by an Australian film collector asking if “Hello Pop!” was a lost film.

Hopefully it is sans Ted Healy, but I suspect otherwise, if it’s from the MGM. Can’t stand Healy.

I don’t understand those who criticize the stooges for being silly and dumb. They worked very hard to be silly and dumb.

Mo: Stop moving, you dumbskull, I'm sleeping

Curly: I'm sorry Mo, I couldn't sleep. I had a bad dream, a foreign muslim became President and began destroying the economy, the middle class, our national standing in the world. Please tell me it's just a dream

Larry: Don't be ridiculous, not this century

Mo: Feel better, moron?

Curly: Yes.

Mo: Now let's go to sleep.

...

Mo: Now what's the matter?

Curly: Please tell me Hillary Clinton isn't real either?

Larry: I'm going to be sick

Mo: I can tell you anything you want, lame brain, but I think it'd be better if you slept in the closet for a while.

Having grown up watching the Three Stooges on Sally Starr’s ‘Popeye Theater’, I am psyched to see this.
This is definitely a cool discovery.
