Angora Love

Remember this earlier post?

I recently watched a few Laurel&Hardy shorts and in one of them I recognized the shots that Dick used as reference for the animation of Zigzag stepping on the tack. The short is called "Angora Love".
As a kid I watched a lot of Laurel&Hardy films on German television. Comedian Hanns Dieter Hüsch did narration and also voice over for all the characters. When I think of Laurel&Hardy I always imagine hearing his voice. You might want to search for "Die nächtliche Ziegenwäsche". There is a clip that has the shots that Dick used around the 8:50 mark.
