Laurel and Hardy: This Is Your Laff LP


One of the weirdest Peter Pan releases, I didn't even know it existed until I started researching the label for this blog.

Larry Harmon was a guy who, mid-1960s, bought the rights to produce cartoons and merchandise based on the legendary comedians(see
here for more info on the man)--there was even a DC comic book!

Never having been a L&H fan(Mark Evanier forgive me), this whole thing induces no more than an indifferent shrug from me, but I do wish they had done an Abbott & Costello one--now that's something I would've loved to have heard!

Technically, this isn't a "Power Record", which was Peter Pan's umbrella title for the comic book/action-oriented adventure stories, but it simply too odd an item to pass up. This was, in my mind, tied with The Gemini Man for hardest to find Peter Pan record, since for the longest time I could not find a copy of either one. Now I guess Gemini Man takes the title. Someday...

About a hundred years ago, my brother and I got his record for Christmas from our parents. I loved Laurel and Hardy when I was a litle kid and this gift was like magic. When we opened it up, it had somehow -- somewhere -- been broken.. in two. Never heard more than a few seconds of it.
Never thought in a million years I'd ever get to listen to it.

Very enjoyable comic, I wonder if you have the entire series of the three stooges.

Lots of familiar voices here. Not the usual Peter Pan / Power Records gang.
