Brats

Brats ★★★★

The Brats of the title are Laurel and Hardy's kids, played by Laurel and Hardy themselves, stood next to some giant props to give a wonderful illusion of small, child-like stature. Mini-Hardy, sans moustache, is a comic highpoint of this 20 minute short film. I loved the use of the oversized set, the increasingly violent silliness, Oliver Hardy's yodeling and economy of the runtime.
