Saturday Retro Video – The Shemp Surprise

Shemp Howard appeared in over 70 Three Stooges short films in the 1930s and ’40s. His most memorable on-screen mannerism was the sound he made when surprised. Wikipedia describes it as “…a high-pitched “bee-bee-bee-bee-bee-bee!” sound, a sort of soft screech done by inhaling.”
