I remember the Laurel and Hardy cartoons when their aired on WNEW-TV (now WNYW-TV) in New York in the early 70s. The cartoons tried to recapture the zaniness of Stan and Ollie but the plots were pretty much the same as they tried to get out of "another fine mess", a line that was frequently used in their movies but never heard in the cartoons.
The one positive thing about the Laurel and hardy cartoons was the voicework of Jim MacGeorge as Ollie and Larry Harmon (who co-produced the series with Hanna-Barbera and Wolper Productions) as Stan. Harmon's portrayal of Stan Laurel was outstanding, especially when he talked normally and when he used a whiny voice to say "I'm sorry, Ollie!"
