    I would think that most baby boomers will remember that old vaudeville routine. I know I do. Classic is the understatement. very funny too

    Maybe some Boomers remember it from Saturday TV movies & variety shows; the first born in 1946 not alive for 1945 film version, earlier stage/radio, but they can hear the tapes and see the films. I wish we had such good radio now - Comedy, Mystery and whatnot. Political talk shows are getting old.

    I suddenly remember in the later 60s when Flippo the Clown played the movie clip on his cartoon and film show! That was fun.

    Was the routine really copyrighted and placed into the Baseball Hall of Fame? Anyone know?

    My cousins for some reason were discussing this 'skit' shortly after we came to Canada in '69. Not speaking English at the time it unfortunately went over my head and it did nothing when translated. Then in '83 my then 9 year old son and his buddy recreated the 'skit' for a school play (they were so funny that the audience couldn't stop laughing) In 2003 we all went up north for a 'Old friends reunion' and sure enough the two now adults had to re-enact it all again. In twenty years neither had forgotten even one little word. I wish I would have had the brain power to video it.

    That routine is probably one of the best written funny pieces in history. I just love it.

    Thanks Terry for bringing it up again.
    regards Zsuzsy

    God, that was awfully funny. And innocent.

    My room mate is 65 years old, he's gotten me into the Marx brothers and Lurel and Hardy. As a kid, from when I was about 11-13 I used to watch the three stooges almost nightly.

    You know, when people ask if you could go anywhere in the world, what would it be?

    I'd totally want to traverse time and see some world's fairs, early cinema (with a piaonist in the theater doing the score by the cuff!), burlesque shows, etc. Its rad stuff!

    It may be odd that a 24 year old such as I watch all these old things (I'm a silent film fan, too!) but people the world over are rediscovering old things and putting a modern spin on them.

    Check out this music vid by a band from Seattle called Abney Park. Its like watching a victorian era burlesque show with "steampunk" aesthetics!

    Thank you for sharing this with me, I'm going to do some sniffing around on torrent sites and Archive.org to see if I can't pull some of this stuff down.

    That sounds like great fun and perhaps you will do a Hub on it!

    That was funny, I had never seen the original, but knew the reference from more modern TV shows. It is cool to finally see the classic version. Hilarious.
