Storyline

Stanley and Oliver are trying to spend a relaxing night at home playing checkers, but the antics of their mischievous sons keep interrupting their recreation. Exasperated, the fathers send their misbehaving offspring to bed and start in on a furniture-destroying game of billiards. Upstairs, the kids continue to cause a ruckus and leave the bathtub faucet running full force. Finally, Oliver asks if they'll go to sleep if he gives them each a drink of water, then heads for the bathroom door. Written by Paul Penna <tterrace@wco.com>

Kid Trouble With Mr. Laurel & Mr. Hardy
14 May 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

A LAUREL & HARDY Comedy Short.

Stan & Ollie each have a look-alike young son and they're both a couple of BRATS. While the men are trying to have a quiet evening of checkers & billiards, upstairs the two tots are into every sort of infantile mischief - destroying furniture & inflecting bodily injury upon each other...

A hilarious little film, with the Boys each playing a dual role. Good use of oversized props. Ollie (who looks odd without his mustache) sings ‘Go To Sleep, My Baby.'
