Trivia

According to The Official Dick Van Dyke Show Book by Vince Waldron, Laurel told him that the derby hat that Van Dyke used did not match the one he used to use. He said that had Van Dyke called him, he would have lent it to him! Van Dyke was a huge Laurel and Hardy so an audience with the legendary comedian was a special privilege. See more »

Quotes

Buddy Sorrell: [on his wife being the worst cook] One night she says to me "How do you fix frankfurters?" I says "I don't know. I guess the same way you fix fish." She says "I tried it. Once you clean out those weenies, there's nothing left."
