1986 brought a real oddity to Caesar's filmography. STOOGEMANIA was about a man (Josh Mostel) who was obsessed with The Three Stooges, and saw them everywhere he went. Mostel, Caesar, and Melanie Chartoff basically appeared in short film segments that connected clips from some public domain Three Stooges shorts. (The film was not sanctioned by Columbia, the Stooges' home studio).
In 1987, Caesar starred as the title character in a live action version of the fairy tale THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES. This was one of nine films in the "Cannon Movie-Tales" series produced by Yoram Globus and Menahem Golan in 1987 and 1988.
