I absolutely love Stanley and Oliver and enjoyed this collection very much. My only complaint is there are repeat episodes in this collection in a Spanish version. Whereas I don't speak spanish I would have rather seen other episodes.

One of the best and definitely my favorite comedy teams of all time including the Three Stooges. You have Stan Laurel (the skinny one) who plays the innocent, smart, but stupid person, and Oliver Hardy (the fat one) who always think he is smart, but he is more stupid than his skinny counterpart. Digitally remastered for better sound quality and picture. If you are fan of Laurel and Hardy, then this the definitive collection. To those of you who don't know who they were, i highly recommend you see this duo of brilliant.
