Brats is the 1930 comedy short directed by James Parrott. Starring Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy in dual roles the story sees the friends left in charge of their boys whilst the wives are out.

An early contender for my favourite Laurel and Hardy short, you can't go wrong with them playing the role of children. Amongst their childish disastrous and destructive behaviour you get the added bonus of the incredibale oversized set designs which brings an additional level of fun. Between the cartoon mouse, large furniture and boxing bouts there are continuous moments of comedy that I loved from start to finish.
