The Short

Plot: The king of a kingdom (Stan Laurel) disappears. A body double (also Stan Laurel) fakes his reappearance.
The Rascals briefly appear approximately fifteen minutes into the film. Ernie, Jackie, Mary, Mickey, and Joe (introduced as "great throngs") cheer the fake king ("Rudolph Razz") as he walks by. Mary bashfully goes up to Rudolph to talk to him. A jealous Mickey kicks Rudolph in his rear end, causing the Rascals to all laugh.


  • "He ain't no king. I know 'em all personally." - Mickey
