The short aired on Talking Pictures TV, here in the UK, as part of its Laurel and Hardy season.
The film holds a very dear place in my heart as it was one of a few Laurel and Hardy titles that were on a VHS tape that my father recorded from TV back in the early 1980s.
It for sure was the first Laurel and Hardy film I watched. It could very well have been the first film I watched ever. That's how important it is to me.
I had never seen it transmit on TV before yesterday, so - when I knew that Talking Pictures had it on the schedule for 9:35AM - I made sure to do so.
The story, along with most of the visual gags, still hold up today.
If the saying about 'what goes around comes around' is true, I hope at least one child out there watched it and it will end up meaning something to them just as it did to me for all these years.
I wrote about the film when it celebrated its 85th anniversary. You can read about it IN THIS POST.
