Harlow Hickenlooper aka The Three Stooges Show

"The Three Stooges Show" is better known by its informal title, "Harlow Hickenlooper". Hal Fryar (who played Harlow) was the host of this Indiana children's show, which played Three Stooges shorts.

Can we make "Harlow Hickenlooper" the default title? This would not only reflect how the old people in Indiana remember the show, it would also save a great deal of confusion by the contributors, who seem to think this title represents the Three Stooges short film series, and not the children's show.

Two of the cast members (Larry Fine and Moe Howard) are wrong.

The episodes are wrong.

The photos are wrong.

The videos are wrong.

The plot summary is wrong.

The user review is wrong.

The movie connections are all wrong (except one that I submitted, which is still pending).

And 99% of the user ratings were probably intended for the short film series.

P.S. I hope this post reignites the conversation about creating a way to link movies to a movie series, in a way similar to how TV episodes are linked, EXCEPT that the movies would still appear in the searches as individual movies, and still have their own pages, rather than pages that are subordinate to the series title.

IMDb has had endless trouble over the years (see this thread for an excellent example) from users and contributors who expect to find The Three Stooges, Tom and Jerry, Looney Tunes and other such series listed AS series, but don't.

Hi J.

Thanks for the above information and reports of incorrect data on the title.

I have submitted deletions and transferred videos on your behalf now, if no problems are encountered this should update online within 24 hours on all platforms.

Unfortunately due to the title Harlow Hickenlooper being an informal one, we store it as an AKA but we cannot change the main display as this is not how it was originally named.

Please don't hesitate to let us know via should you have any additional queries or reports of incorrect information.
Also, if you have additional data to add to the title that would be greatly appreciated.

Have a great day.
