Laurel and Hardy

Laural and Hardy- (Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy)
Laurel- thin, wears a derby, not very bright
Hardy-Very needy, wears a derby, not much brighter, small mustache

Unlike the three stooges, they fight each other like little boys, not violently.

Unlike W.C. Fields and the Marx Brothers, they were always the victims. W.C. Fields and the Marx Brothers always dominated their surroundings.

They've done both silent shorts and 'talkie' shorts. "The Music Box" won the Oscar.

Some full length movies to see: "Sons of the Desert" and "Flying Deuces"

My opinion, these guys are right up there with the Marx Brothers. ^^
