    Oliver Hardy: 'Didn't you once tell me that you had an uncle?'

    Stan Laurel: 'Sure, I've got an uncle. Why?'

    Oliver: 'Now we're getting somewhere. Is he living?'

    Stanley: 'No. He fell through a trap door and broke his neck.'

    Oliver: 'Was he building a house?'

    Stanley: 'No, they were hanging him.'

    From The Laurel-Hardy Murder Case (1930). Stan Laurel (1890-1965), Oliver Hardy (1892-1957).

    Funny!

    I watched Babes in Toyland with Laurel and Hardy every Christmas when I was a kid and it was great every time. I bet it will be on this year too.

    my dad turned me on to Laurel & Hardy many years ago. It's a 'comedy' you don't see anymore. I would get up early Sunday morn. and they would usually show a Laurel & Hardy or The Bowery Boys film on tv.

    That was a local tradition here every Thanksgiving on WPIX Ch.11, first "The March of the Wooden Soldiers" and then "Mighty Joe Young" and then dinner.

    They were great. Stan continued to write L&H scripts long after Ollie had passed. I guess it was a labor of love

    I liked them when I was very young. I think I might find them too slow moving now. I haven't seen an episode in a long time.

    Used to love them. Haven't seen them for years and years. I should check out YouTube to see if I still find them as funny as I did when I was a kid.

    I used to watch them on TV before school. I was late for school every day.

    Oliver was remarkably graceful and light on his feet. It's a type of comedy that's slower but much warmer than slapstick. Chaplin both liked and respected them a lot.

    For some strange reason the only episode that comes to mind when I hear of Laurel and Hardy is a hospital visit scene involving 'hard-boiled eggs and nuts.'

    Watching it made me so thirsty back then, when I was a kid… makes me want to get a drink of water right now just thinking about it, haha!

    Love Laurel and Hardy, lot's of good memories of watching those old movies with my dad, the one where they moved the piano comes to mind, all are classics.
    Also love the Marx Brothers.

    I learned how to move pianos from those two.
