Well-Done Compilation of The Boys' Work
22 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

In the late 80s, Hal Roach attempted to revitalize an interest in the brilliant work of the greatest comedy team of all time - Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. It was a success, and all he had to do was put their shorts and/or films into an hour block known as "The Laurel and Hardy Show". He gave them an opening credits montage, as well as ending every show with a dedication to someone who worked for The Hal Roach Stock Company. It aired in syndication throughout the late 80s, and in 1991 until 1993 Comedy Central broadcast it. They showed, however, Hal Roach's own colorized versions of their work (he experimented himself with these about 10 years prior, but they weren't well-accepted by classic film enthusiasts and therefore weren't aired until Comedy Central decided to do so). Since then this great show has been off the air. AMC aired The Boys' work Saturday afternoons for about a year in 1993, but they only aired a few shorts and showed the same ones over and over.

This is one show I really miss. I had all of them on tape from WWOR Ch. 9 from NYC (Sunday mornings at 8 am), and I have some on tape from Comedy Central's airings. This show definitely needs to be brought back, even if it's just to re-introduce Stan and Ollie to a newer generation.
