Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy were one of the most popular and critically acclaimed comedy double acts of the early Classical Hollywood era of American cinema.

Although Laurel & Hardy never acted in any Disney movies, Walt Disney himself caricatured them in some animated shorts. Doofenshmirtz and his counterpart got dressed as them during their song in Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension. In the Mighty Ducks episode; "Mondo-Man", Chameleon was seen transforming into Oliver Hardy as well.
