For decades upon decades, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy's brand of humour have been the inspiration behind many of today's (and yesterday's) comedians. Today, almost 100 years since they first graced our screens, their movies are still loved worldwide by audiences of all ages. So why aren't they shown on TV any more? It seems the executives who commission TV programmes for mainstream television think people have forgotten Laurel and Hardy and that they wouldn't attract enough viewers to justify showing them. Let's prove them wrong. We need at least 20,000 signatures on this petition to prove that the public want to see Laurel and Hardy films on mainstream television again. Don't let future generations miss out on the works of Laurel and Hardy.

I used to watch Laurel and Hardy in the 70s as a small child. Their wit, charm, camerardery, timing, perfect performance, and their provision of superb slapstick comedy and the way they both looked at the camera was and still is captivating and funny. My 6-yr-old daughter has just started to watch on Y-Tube and adores them. Bring them back to the TV and keep them alive.
i loved watching laurel and hardy on the telly growing especially during the holidays please bring them back
Time in Witness Protection goes real slow. Being able to watch: "Babes in Toyland" would make it go faster.
