Laurel and Hardy is an American animated television series and an updated version of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy's comedic acts by the animation studio Hanna-Barbera from Hal Roach. A total of 156 shorts were made, each having its own opening and closing wrap-arounds, to make them easy to air in syndication. In a majority of the cartoons, after Laurel and Hardy get into a mess of trouble, almost each one of them ends with Laurel whimpering in a high register. As both Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy had died by the time of this series (Laurel died a year before the series went to air), Larry Harmon (who also produced the cartoons) and Jim MacGeorge respectively provided the voices of Stan and Ollie. They would later reprise their roles in an episode of The New Scooby-Doo Movies.
Congress Video Group released two volumes containing episodes from this cartoon series. Volume 1 contained the following episodes: "Can't Keep a Secret Agent", "How Green Was My Lawn Mower", "Handle With Care", "Camera Bugged", "Plumber Pudding", and "Robust Robot". Volume 2 contained the following episodes: "Copper Bopper", "Feud For Thought", "Love Me, Love My Puppy", "Squawking Squatter", "Goofy Gopher Goof-Up", and "Sassy Sea Serpent".
On 6 November 2012, France released a four-disc DVD set of the complete series; it included 68 episodes in English with French subtitles.
