LOOK OUT AVATAR! HERE COME THE STOOGES!
Blog
Posted on Feb 20 2010 by Greg
James Cameron may have pushed motion capture to the next level in Avatar, but take a look at 1962's The Three Stooges in Orbit -- Moe, Larry and Curly Joe are painted white and wear special suits so an inventor can feed their images into a machine to create a "new kind of cartoon." Ultimately the result the threesome are animated with the then-decades-old rotoscope process, but the parallel is still pretty neat.



When the Stooges get into the sky for the big finale, they keep a explosive weapon from destroying Disneyland as they fly over it. Whew -- what a relief!
