Mrs. Hardy insists that Oliver mount the radio aerial on the roof before he goes off gallivanting with his friend Stanley. But with Stanley's assistance, Oliver spends more time falling off the roof than atop it. Making one last attempt, Oliver climbs to the top of a ladder he's mounted on his Model T Ford, but just then Stanley accidentally starts the car. A wild ride through the streets of Culver City culminates in an unscheduled streetcar stop. Written by

This is one of many Laurel & Hardy short features that show how much mileage the great comedy duo were able to get out of a single situation. After a somewhat slow opening sequence, Stan and Ollie have to install a radio antenna on Ollie's roof, and things quickly get "Hog Wild", as everything that can happen does happen. You can see a lot of the gags coming in this one, but they are still very funny, done cleverly and with expert timing. It gets even better as it goes along. This one is worth making a point to see if you are a fan of Laurel and Hardy.
