This was part of a 3-DVD box-set, and this disc came with the Laurel and Hardy shorts Mud & Sand, Just Ramblin' Along, The Tree in a Test Tube and the Three Stooges ones Brideless Groom and Sing a Song of Six Pants; it also came with Malice in the Palace, and the features Atoll K(or Utopia) and Flying Deuces. While the full running time of my copy of this is 11 minutes, the first of the eleven was dedicated to a text intro explaining how much effort Stan(who is the only member of the duo to appear in this; I believe this was before they teamed up) put into his work, making up the gags to fit the situation, rather than the other way around. Maybe that is to try to class up this(it needed it; to be fair, it does mention that before Oliver joined him, the shorts did not get to be as popular), because, honestly, this is pretty uninspired. Nothing is particularly clever, the music doesn't seem to fit, and the whole thing feels like they're making it up as they go along, introducing characters and scenarios every time they run out of steam with what they're already doing. This takes place at a fruit packing plant. The pace is uneven. I recommend this purely to the biggest fans of the guy. 5/10
