Winky, Blinky, and Noddy

Winky, Blinky, and Noddy are three comic relief, supporting characters for the Jay Garrick Flash. Their names are derived from the poem Wynken, Blynken, and Nod. They are also based on the Three Stooges.
Winky Moylan, Blinky Boylan, and Noddy Toylan were three henchmen that worked for an evil stable owner. However, they became good guys after Flash captured their boss. They would often get in trouble while trying to get jobs and Flash would have to save them. As such, they were nicknamed the "Three Numbskulls", the "Three Dopes", the "Three Idiots" and the "Three Dimwits". After several appearances in the Silver Age, they got to a job at the Flash Museum. However, in  Justice League: Cry for Justice, they were pointlessly killed off-panel by someone (it's unknown who did it) stealing the Cosmic Treadmill.
