So the continuous question that has bedeviled all mankind since 1958 once again escapes final resolution: Was Joe DeRita, even for one second, ever funny? You can go through his three pre-Stooges 1946-47 Joe DeRita short subjects and the sundry '60s Stooge theatrical features searching in vain for a truly humorous moment that he personally provides. That having been said, I love the Stooges, all six of them as well as near-Stooge Emil Sitka. But not Ted Healy.
He was funny enough. All he had to be was cute and sweet enough for children. He played a huge part in the Stooges' 60s revival.
