Moe character jug produced in Korea by Hamilton Gifts of Newville, Pennsylvania, circa 1980. Moses Harry Horwitz (1897 - 1975), better known by his stage name Moe Howard, was an American comedian and actor. He is best known as the leader of The Three Stooges, the farce comedy team who starred in motion pictures and television for four decades. That group initially started out as Ted Healy and His Stooges, an act that toured the vaudeville circuit. Moe's distinctive hairstyle came about when he was a boy and cut off his curls with a pair of scissors, producing an irregular shape approximating a bowl cut.
