none taken, i always prefer to have the originals but i'm not rich enough to buy this boxset so tbh it wouldn't of made any difference, but now i have been lucky enough to get it for christmas. i would find it worse if someone whom had a copied dvd boxset were easily able to afford it, but i have it properly now. but how many laws do we break watching uploaded youtube vids, internet tv, even downloading music including illegal bootlegs that isn't even on commercial sale anyway and uploading to our mp3 players?

back to laurel & hardy. the boxset also includes colourised versions of most of the episodes and all of the films, they were colourised back in the 1980's and look pretty impressive. however i still prefer the timeless B&W versions. one of my favourite episode has to be where they rent a room for the night and sneak in their pet pooch whom they named "Laughing Gravy" which is the title of the episode. here's a clip of them washing the dog :lol:

Next time you see an old "Honeymooners", watch Jackie Gleason and Art Carney as Ralph Cramden and Ed Norton. Seem famliar? This odd couple pairing was expanded to include the beautiful wife/slob combo that's become a staple of sitcoms ever since. The mismatch idea has been around since the radio days, but Stan and Ollie gave them distinctive faces.

Ewwww. They need to leave these alone.

Laurel & Hardy as well as the Stooges are classic. Love them both.

I have not seen an official Laurel & Hardy DVD ever. I've met some Dutch editions though. I have some old VHS tapes with several episodes and I will watch those until there will be a quality re-release.

It may be that not all of their movies are extant any longer, or they may be in very bad condition with scenes missing.

But I don't know, maybe I should look for some literature.

Maybe I didn't look hard enough. But I hate to use violence.

this is my recently discontinued 21 DVD collection, all the Hal Roach shorts & movies in their original B&W formats, plus many colourised, and even a few of them where they are speaking spanish, even german for european audiences. no subs on those ones though which is a shame :(

That box looks something I would buy for 30 bucks.

But since I live here where I quite want to be I'm hardly going to see that box, especially if it is discontinued.
