Swifty and Shorty are scheduled to go fishing, but Swifty won't wake up.
Between the stuff being turned out for Saturday morning TV, Famous Studios tried some experimenting in this cartoon, clearly aimed at the adults. The denuded budgets are maintained by reducing the characters to white figures who live in an impressionist water color world. The gags are clearly aimed at an older audience, since they involve such props as dentures; and the cartoon's title refers to references to Laurel & Hardy as "The Boys".
Although I find the visuals in this one appalling, clearly director Howard Post had not given up all hope of doing something and it turns out to be highly watchable.
