When released on video with Video Treasures, the following scene was removed: When Ollie accidentally get's his head stuck in the head of the bed Stan helps him pull it out. The video release showed the Before and After of the gag instead of the middle, so it cuts right to the broken bed head and Ollie rubbing his neck. See more »
"Going Bye-Bye !" shows the screen's greatest comic double-act in brilliant form. It is in fact their last short comedy film classic - another five more two-reelers followed followed (though only one of these - "Them Thar Hills" - approaches the standard of this one). Long is at his fearsome best, and the dialogue ("Excuse me, I have milk in my ear"), characterisations and slapstick are wonderful. This is up there with Stan and Ollie's best. A must.
