A serious case of emotional neglect brings door-to-door Christmas cards salesmen, Stan and Ollie, at the house of an inconsolable wife who is convinced that her artist husband doesn't love her anymore.
Chimney sweeps Stanley and Oliver go about their job, reducing Professor Noodle's living room to a shambles in the process, while the mad doctor works in his laboratory perfecting his "rejuvination formula." Cackling with glee, the Professor demonstrates his success for the boys, dropping a duckling into the vat and winding up with an egg. There's a somewhat different type of regression, however, when Stanley accidentally knocks Oliver into the formula.Written by

A different ending was planned but then discarded. Originally all three fell into the pool (Laurel, Hardy and the professor) and came out as chimpanzees. See more »

This Laurel & Hardy short comedy features two subplots that come together towards the end. Stan and Ollie are chimney sweeps, working at the home of a mad professor. As the professor is busy trying to perfect his latest wacky formula, the boys are raising havoc with their attempts to clean out his chimney. The subplot about the professor's secret formula is only mildly amusing at most, and is really there only to set up one gag at the end. But the chimney sweep scenes are another very funny instance of how many laughs that Laurel and Hardy could get out of one simple situation. They use the props and setting with their usual creativity. Overall, this is quite entertaining.
