The Robonic Stooges is an animated comedy series that aired Saturday mornings on CBS. It was originally a segment of Hanna-Barbera's live action/cartoon hybrid show The Skatebirds on CBS in September 1977. Split off from that show, it was billed on-screen and in TV listings as The Three Robonic Stooges.

Norman Maurer, who owned the rights to the Three Stooges, developed this cartoon depicting Larry, Moe and Curly as inept robot superheroes. They run a junk shop and take their orders from long-suffering boss Agent 000, who appears via a miniature video projector. The patented Stooges humor of eye pokes and face slaps was eschewed for a broader, less violent type of physical comedy.

The middle feature of the series, another castoff from The Skatebirds, was Woofer & Wimper: Dog Detectives, which was edited editions of Hanna-Barbera's 1976 show Clue Club.

The Robonic Stooges was dropped in the fall of 1978 but returned to CBS Sunday mornings as repeats in 1979 and 1981. Animation was affected at Hanna-Barbera's Australia studio in Sydney.
