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

With today being both Stan Laurel's birthday and Father's Day, I thought I'd watch his and Hardy's Brats for the occasion
With today being both Stan Laurel's birthday (he would have been 123 on this day!) and Father's Day, I thought I'd rewatch this short he made with Oliver Hardy since it's the only time they play dads. Specifically, both the parental units and their spitting image offspring (sans mustache on the Hardy son) with giant props to emphasize the Laurel & Hardy children being "actual" kids. There's not much split-screen images in having the two play both roles which is just as well as that might have been too distracting. Not completely hilarious but there are many moments of genuine humor that kept me amused throughout. Oh, and it was nice to hear Mr. Hardy sing another song for the occasion, this time being "Go to Sleep, My Baby". In summary, Brats is well worth it for any Laurel & Hardy fan.
