Ok, so after a bit of googling, here is what I found:

No, Bud and Lou didn't originate the Niagara Falls (a.k.a. Slooowly I Turned) routine; it is an old burlesque bit. As AC screenwriter Harry Crane explained in the book, Abbott and Costello in Hollywood, That routine is a burlesque classic; all the comics knew it, and there were even several different versions of it. That's why the Stooges were able to do the Niagara Falls version of the routine in their short, Gents Without Cents, while Bud and Lou did the Pokomoko version in their film, Lost in a Harem. Both films were playing in movie theaters late in 1944! Years later, Bud and Lou did the Niagara Falls version with Sid Fields in the Jail episode of the team's TV series. That's on Vol. 7 of of The Abbott and Costello Show.
