And one tough mouse he was, especially when standing up to the bumps and buffets he received as one of the Ted Healy Stooges (some of whom would go on to become the famous Three Stooges). Later, he applied his finely honed pie-in-the-face talents to club work (including a stint with Spike Jones), radio, television, and film. His career has stretched over seven decades and continues today, as Mousie still enjoys pounding out old piano tunes and cracking jokes at yearly Stooge conventions."@en ;
