Laurel and Hardy were the popular American-based comedy team of thin, British-born Stan Laurel (1890-1965) and heavy, American-born Oliver Hardy (1892-1957). They became famous during the early half of the 20th century for their work in motion pictures, and also appeared on stage throughout America and Europe. The duo is considered one of the most iconic and finest double acts in motion picture history. The two comedians worked together briefly in 1917 on The Lucky Dog. After a period appearing separately in several short films for the Hal Roach studio during the 1920s, they began appearing in movie shorts together in 1926. Laurel and Hardy officially became a team the following year, and soon became Hal Roach's most famous and lucrative stars. Among their most popular and successful films were the features Sons of the Desert (1933), Way Out West (1937), and Block-Heads (1938)[1] and the shorts Big Business (1929), Liberty (1929), and their Academy Award-winning short, The Music Box (1932).[2] The pair left the Roach studio in 1940, then appeared in eight "B" comedies for 20th Century Fox and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer from 1941 to 1944. From 1945 to 1950 they did not appear on film and concentrated on their stage show. They made their last film, Atoll K, in France in 1950 and 1951 before retiring from the screen. In total they appeared together in 106 films. They starred in 40 short sound films, 32 short silent films, 23 full length feature films and in the remaining 11 films made a guest or cameo appearance.

S00E08 Ladrones 04/01/1930 Bilingual and extended version of the film "Night Owls" (1930), filmed simultaneously with its predecessor for the Spanish market. Running time almost twice as long, this adaptation offers plenty of new gags and a different ending. Laurel & Hardy were coached by Spanish tutors and read some of their dialogue as written phonetically on blackboards off scene.
S00E09 La Vida Nocturna 19/04/1930 In this Spanish-language version of "Blotto" bachelor Oliver wants henpecked Stan to go out with him to a Prohibition-era nightclub, so they plan a ruse to get him out of the house. The fiery Mrs. Laurel overhears their plans and replaces the contents of Stan's hidden bottle of liquor with tea and spices. While the boys are at the club enjoying the dancers and the speakeasy-type atmosphere, they imbibe the concoction with seltzer water. The power of suggestion causes them to act like sloppy drunks, but the sight of a hot-tempered Mrs. Laurel with a shotgun quickly sobers them up.
S00E10 Tiembla y Titubea 26/04/1930 This film was simultaneously produced in English and Spanish language versions. The English language version was Below Zero (1930). To film this Spanish language version, Laurel and Hardy read their lines from cue cards on which Spanish was printed phonetically. At the time of early talkies, dubbing was not yet perfected.
S00E11 Noche De Duendes 06/09/1930 This is the Spanish rendition of The Laurel-Hardy Murder Case expanded to 49 minutes! The extra footage at the outset is comprised of overnight train travel to the eerie estate, as incorporated from Berth Marks. Even to audiences not fluent in Spanish, these fresh export versions are both a delight and a revelation. Incidentally, the interior of the old dark house set was never struck at the studio, and remained in use for TV production through the 1950s.
S00E12 Politiquerias 21/02/1931 A remake in Spanish of the Laurel and Hardy short Chickens Come Home (1931) , expanded into a feature by adding scenes of a magician and a regurgitator performing.

S00E14 Los Calaveras 19/04/1931 This Spanish language film was produced simultaneously with the filming of the two English language Laurel and Hardy shorts Be Big! (1931) and Laughing Gravy (1931). The two shorts were edited together into one continuous film. Laurel and Hardy read their lines from cue cards on which Spanish was written phonetically. At the time of early talkies, dubbing was not yet perfected. The same was done for a French language version, Les carottiers (1931).
S00E15 Tiembla y Titubea 12/11/2015 Spanish version of Below Zero has the same storyline of the American version but this one here features a few additional scenes as well as an extended ending, which was cut from the American version. Like other Spanish L&H films, this here doesn't quite work because you can tell the two aren't really comfortable speaking Spanish. The added joke at the end however is the best gag and it's a shame it was cut from the American version.
