The main focus is on the two disagreeing so often that it got them into trouble on more than one occasion. 'The Laurel and Hardy Show' is a syndicated version of The Boys, seen weekly throughout the late 80s. Showcased collections of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy's genius work, as well as featurettes ending each episode dediacted to the bit-players seen in many shorts. Distributed and made by Hal Roach.

The boys are part of an Army Reserve group, headed for a weekend camp. Sergeant Banner (Hardy) gets in trouble with Captain Bustle (James Finlayson) by flirting with Bustle's two female companions. Private Cuthbert Hope (Laurel) is also on the train, causing trouble. While going through their exercises at their destination, the men pause to bathe in a lake. Hope is supposed to watch their clothing, but instead he joins them. Banner tosses away his cigarette, which completely burns up everyone's outfits. Bustle's ladies happen by, and the naked platoon are forced to hide behind a billboard and have to somehow get back to camp. On the way, they knock over a hornet's nest, resulting in a title card reading, "All's well that ends swell," and a final shot showing the men from the back, their behinds swollen to preposterous proportions.
