The Fat and The Skinny - Dinodisneylover1

Can it be? The world's greatest comical duo have somehow arrived in Equestria? Still alive?

  • ...

A Royal Invitation

Carousel Boutique, the home of the beautiful Rarity, Mr. Laurel and Mr. Hardy went there for the afternoon. Not to work cause that will have to wait, but for a very special occasion. Mr. Hardy admired the lifestyle of the white unicorn. Mr. Laurel, however, thinks differently. He thought she could be a swell mine worker because of her diamond cutie mark.

"No. No. Oh, heavens no." Rarity said while trying various costumes on Stan and Ollie. She was searching for Stan first.

"Pardon me, Miss Rarity. But what is the occasion for wearing something fancy." Ollie asked.

"Haven't you heard? It's the Grand Galloping Gala tonight!" Rarity said excited.

Stan and Ollie looked at each other questionably.

"What is the Grand Galloping Gala?" Stan asked.

Rarity's eyes went wide by that.

"Don't you know what the Grand Galloping Gala is?" Rarity asked.

Ollie and Stan shook their heads.

"It's an annual royal ball held to celebrate the completion of Canterlot after Equestria was founded." Rarity explained.

"That sounds amazing." Ollie said.

"It is. If you're new here in Ponyville, then this must be your first Grand Galloping Gala ever." Rarity said.

"That's true." Ollie said.

"Oh, the excitement, the anticipation. Spike!" Rarity called to Spike.

The little dragon immediately came to his crush.

"Yes, Rarity?" He said.

"Could you give me some pins?" She asked.

"Coming right up." He said.

He walked away and came back with pins in his body, using himself as a pincushion. Rarity used her magic to take a few. Stan and Ollie saw that. Spike walked to Ollie.

"Doesn't that hurt?" Ollie asked.

"Thick scales. Can't feel a thing. And even if I could , there is no pain that would keep me from assisting the most beautiful creature in the world." He said looking at Rarity with loving eyes.

"You sure do love her." Ollie said.

"You have no idea." Spike said.

"Did you ever told her your secret?" Ollie asked.

"Almost. When I turned into a giant dragon because of greed, she made me remember who I really was. When I turned back to my normal self we fell down. I thought we wouldn't make it, so I told her my secret. But she putted her hoof to my mouth, gave a smile to me while tears came from her eyes. After what happened that day, she called me her hero. I'm not completely sure if she accepts it completely." Spike said looking down at the ground.

Ollie placed his hoof on his shoulder.

"It's going to be alright. You just need to believe in yourself. And if you like, me and Stan can help you with that." Ollie said.

"Thanks, Ollie." Spike said.

But suddenly, he made a face that says like he's going to vomit.

"Spike? Are you alright?" Ollie asked worriedly.

But luckily, he wasn't going to vomit. Instead, he burped some smoke. The smoke changed into some kind of scroll and it fell on the ground.

"What is that?" Ollie asked.

"It's a letter. From the princess." Spike said.

"Oh, those must be the golden tickets the princess sent." Rarity said.

Spike opened the letter and Rarity was right. Nine golden tickets were inside the letter. Wait a minute. Nine?

"Hey, there are two more tickets than usual. She must have miscalculated." Spike said.

"The princess would never miscalculate. What is the letter saying?" Rarity asked.

"My faithful student Twilight.

Here are the tickets for the Gala. You're probaly wondering why there are two more. Well, those are for your two new friends. I've heard about their bravery at stopping the teenage dragons who attacked Ponyville. I really like to meet them.

Yours sincerely, Princess Celestia." Spike reads.

"Did you hear that, Stan? The princess wants to meet us." Ollie said with a smile.

"You don't believe me." Stanley said.

"Yes, I don't beli... What do you mean 'I don't believe you'? Didn't you hear me say that the princess wants to meet us?" Ollie said.

"Really?" Stanley asked.

"Why, of course. Don't you know what an honor this is?" Ollie asked.

"Sure I do. It's like being knighted by the Queen of England." Stan said.

"We're going to Twilight about this after we got our suits for the Gala." Ollie said.

"I've got it!" Rarity said out loud, making the boys jump. She used her magic to take out a white smoking with a black necktie and a white bowler hat for Ollie and a white smoking with a black bowtie and a fancy men straw hat for Stanley. She summoned the wardrobe screen and dragged Stan and Ollie behind it. Loud noises were heard behind the screen. Ollie began to shout and scream in a hilarious way while Rarity tried her best to dress them. After a few seconds, the two finally had their clothes for the gala. They looked astounding.

"Oh, yes. You two look smashing." Rarity said while looking at them.

Stan and Ollie admired themselves in the mirror.

"My, my. Look at this. Thank you, Miss Rarity." Ollie said.

"It's nothing, darlings. I'm always here to help." Rarity said.

"Now, uh, what is the prize?" Ollie asked.

"For you? Nothing. It's on me." Rarity said.

"Ain't that sweet?" Stan said to Ollie.

"It certainly is. Thank you very much." Ollie said.

"Like I said, I'm always here to help." Rarity said. "Let me first pack those up for you."

When Rarity packed the suits for the boys up, they were ready to go to Twilight.

"Wait till Twilight sees us in these. I'll see you tonight, Miss Rarity and thanks for making use of your boudoir." Ollie said.

"You're very welcome." Rarity said.

"Goodbye. With the gems you put on some of those clothes, I bet you would be a swell miner." Stanley said stupidly.

When Ollie heard that, he pushed Stanley violently outside. He then waved to Rarity while she waved back.

While the boys left the boutique, they went back to Twilight's castle. They walked inside and called to Twilight.

"Twilight, we're back." Ollie said.

"Oh, are you already back from Rarity?" Twilight asked.

"We are or we wouldn't be here." Stanley said.

Ollie glared at him once again.

"Wait till you see the outfits she picked out for us." Ollie said.

"I'll bet they look stunning on you. I hope you're ready for the gala tonight." Twilight said.

"Yeah, about that. Spike got a letter from your princess." Ollie said.

Spike gave the letter to Twilight.

"Ah, the tickets have arrived. And look you're invited too." Twilight said.

"I know. Amazing. Isn't it, Ollie?" Stan asked.

"But how does the princess know about us." Ollie asked Twilight.

"Oh, I, uh, kinda wrote to her about you." Twilight said with a sheepish smile.

"You wrote to the princess about us?" Ollie asked.

Twilight nodded.

"What did you tell about us?" Ollie asked.

"Oh, the usual things. Who you are, where you live. I've also told her you're funny guys and what you did for Ponyville by defeating those teenage dragons. She was impressed. She wants to meet both of you. And I think the Grand Galloping Gala would be the perfect place." Twilight said.

"Well, can you beat that, Stanley. Our deeds have been recognized." Ollie said.

"Aren't you excited?" Twilight asked.

"We sure are. Aren't we, Ollie?" Stanley said.

"Why certainly." Ollie said.

"Well, you better get prepared. I absolutely want to see the outfits Rarity made for you." Twilight said with a smile.

"Then we shall prepare ourselves." Ollie said and grabbed the bags with their suits. "Come, Stanley."

Stanley tried to grab the bags, but Ollie kept them out of his reach and pointed a hoof to himself which means he will carry the bags himself. They went to Twilight's bedroom to dress themselves because Twilight was probably in the bathroom. Ollie placed the bags on the bed. He brought the suits with his mouth and placed them properly on the bed. He grabbed his suit with his teeth and tried to think how to put it on. Since they came to this world, they weren't quite used to use their hooves. He tried to open the buttons with his hooves but it didn't help. Then he used his teeth, but it didn't help either. Stanley had grabbed his suit and, guess what, he already had it on. With the straw hat as the finishing touch, he looked like a real gentlecolt. But there was something odd about it. Something that Ollie didn't saw yet. While Ollie kept fooling with his suit, Stanley kept staring at him with a dumb look on his face.

Ollie became almost tired and looked at Stan. With a look of disbelief, he saw that Stan already had his suit on. He looked annoyed at the camera.

"Why don't you do something to help me?" Ollie asked.

"What can I do?" Stan asked.

"Help me open these buttons and wear this suit." Ollie said. "How did you do it?"


"Your suit. How did you put it on?" Ollie asked.

"Oh. I just opened the buttons, put my hooves in the sleeves and tied the buttons again." Stanley said.

"Oh." Ollie said in understanding. But then his eyes went wide again and looked angry at the camera. "Will you please give me a hoof?"

Stanley looked at his hoof and gave it to Ollie. Ollie quickly slapped it away.

"Help me get in this suit!" Ollie said while he began to lose his patience.

Stanley untied the buttons of Ollie's suit. Ollie looked shocked that Stanley could do it even if he had hooves instead of hands. But then came the tricky part, he must help Ollie get in his suit. Stanley used his teeth and hooves to help get Ollie's arm in one of the sleeves. He kept fooling with Ollie's arm and the suit and sometimes let the suit accidently drop to the floor and pick it up again. All of a sudden, he accidently bit Ollie in the arm while trying to grab the sleeve.

"OW! That hurts. Why don't you be careful?" Ollie said.

"I couldn't help it." Stanley said.

"Get that sleeve around my arm." Ollie said.

"I didn't know that magical ponies can wear clothes even though they got no hands." Stanley said.

Suddenly, Stanley finally got the sleeve around Ollie's arm. He also did the same with the other arm. Now with both sleeves around his arms, he made sure that the suit is worn properly. Until...


Ollie heard a ripping sound which Stan didn't pay any attention to. He placed a hoof behind his back and felt there was a big rip on the fancy suit. He also felt that the sleeves were a bit too tied around his arms. He looked at Stanley and saw the odd thing immediatly. The suit Stan wore was a bit wide for his slim figure. That's when Ollie realized it. He gave Stanley a glare. If looks could kill, Ollie would certainly win.

"Did you know that you're wearing my suit?" Ollie asked.

Stanley looked at the suit he wore and pulled it off. Now Ollie was trying to get the sleeves from his arms, but it didn't help. They were too tied. He gasped from exhaustion. He gave Stan an annoyed look.

"Will you please help me get these sleeves off my arms?" Ollie asked.

Stanley tried to get the sleeves from Ollie's arms, but they were still too tied. All of a sudden, Spike appeared in the room.

"What's all that noise? Is something wrong?" Spike asked.

Ollie and Stan saw Spike standing at the door.

"Oh. Nothing is wrong, Spike." Ollie said.

"Yes, there is. Ollie accidently wore my suit, now his arms are stuck in my sleeves." Stan said.

"Maybe I can help." Spike said and walked towards the duo. "Let's see."

Spike pulled at the sleeve a few times, but it's still stuck. Spike scratched his head.

"How did you even get in these?" Spike asked.

"Well, I helped him." Stan said.

"Will you two please help me get out of this?" Ollie said.

Spike began to think and suddenly got an idea. He began to whisper in Stanley's ear. Stanley nodded in understanding. Stan went to only and grabbed him tied around his belly. Spike grabbed one of the sleeves. He pulled as hard as he can and suddenly the sleeve was ripped from the suit. His arm was free but his suit is a little ruined.

"Oh no. Did Rarity made those for you?" Spike asked.

Ollie nodded.

"If this problem is solved, maybe we can ask Rarity if she still can fix them before the gala." Spike said.

"It's okay. I don't want her to work so much." Ollie said.

"If we explain what happened, she would totally understand it. Alright, now the other sleeve." Spike said.

Spike pulled hard at the sleeve, but this one's tighter than the other one. He pulled harder and harder, but it still didn't came loose. Spike kept pulling hard. This time he pulled so hard that Ollie fell to the ground. Spike kept pulling harder and each time he did, Ollie got dragged a little. But unknown to any of them, Ollie came closer and closer to a pin. Finally, Ollie's butt made contact with it and screamed till everypony's deaf.

"Oh! OOOOH! AAAAAAW!" Ollie screamed and pointed at the pin that got stuck on his butt. "Help me! OOOOOOH! OH! OH! OH! OH! AAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWW!"

Spike quickly got behind Ollie.

"Hold still, Ollie." Spike said and used his claws to pull the pin out of Ollie's butt.

With that, Ollie calmed down. Spike had to snicker a bit from that event, but he tried his best to hold his laughter. Ollie stood up and sat on the bed. His butt still hurt a bit.

"Sit down. Both of you." Ollie said.

Spike took a chair while Stanley sat on the bed.

"Let's get together. There's nothing to getting a sleeve off. You don't have to drag me around the room. It's most embarrassing. Let's concentrate and use our brains, Rome wasn't built in a day." Ollie said. Spike raised an eyebrow because he never heard of Rome before, but he kept listening. "Remember the old adage, a task slowly done is surely done."

Spike and Stanley both nodded.

"Do you understand?" Ollie asked.

"Sure, a cool head never won fair lady." Stanley said stupidly.

Spike couldn't help but laugh a bit. Ollie also began to nod, but suddenly gave Stan an annoyed look for his sentence.

"Now let's do it according to me. Then you'll see how easy, how simple, how free from care everything will be. Now, I'll stand straight up and put my arm forward and you two pull on the sleeve together with one hard pull." Ollie said.

Spike and Stanley grabbed the sleeve as tight as they can and pulled very hard on the sleeve. With one hard pull, the sleeve was finally ripped from Ollie. But the fat guy lost his balance and went straight to the window. He fell out of the window and yelled while he fell down.

"AAAAAAAAH!" Ollie yelled.

Suddenly, he grabbed the balcony before he could have fallen to the ground. He held his grip real tight.

"AAAAAH! AAH! STAN! SPIKE! OH! OH! HEY! HELP!" Ollie yelled.

Stan and Spike looked out the window and saw Ollie hanging on the balcony.

"HEY! HEY! OOOH! COME AND GET ME NOW!" Ollie yelled.

"Don't worry, Ollie! We're coming!" Spike said and turned to Stan. "Grab the mattress from Twilight's bed and go outside to place it under Ollie in case he falls. I'll get Twilight. Hang on!"

Spike quickly ran to find Twilight. Stan grabbed the mattress from Twilight's bed and tried to find his way out of the castle. Ollie kept yelling and screaming. Little by little, he began to loose his grip.

"OH! OH! COME AND GET ME NOW!" Ollie said.

During that time, Spike finally found Twilight in the bathroom.

"Twilight! Twilight! You must come outside!" Spike said.

"For what?" Twilight asked with an eye-brow.

"Ollie fell from the window and is hanging on the balcony." Spike said.

"What? I'm going immediately." Twilight said and quickly ran out of the bathroom.

Stanley finally got outside and placed the mattress under Ollie.


"Don't worry, Ollie! Spike is getting Twilight!" Stan said.


Meanwhile, Spike and Twilight kept running towards the entrance, but suddenly Twilight stopped.

"Why didn't I think of that earlier?" Twilight said.

"What?" Spike asked.

"I can teleport us outside. Hang on, Spike." Twilight said.

Spike grabbed Twilight, she summoned her wings and they both teleported outside. But when they got outside, Ollie lost his grip and fell to the ground.

"AAAAAAAAH! HYAH!" Ollie fell through the mattress creating a big hole in the ground. Guess the mattress wasn't hard enough.

Twilight covered her mouth with her hooves and quickly flew down.

"Sweet Celestia. Ollie!" Twilight said.

But Twilight got surprised, for Ollie came out of the hole. That fall could have caused some broken bones or worse killed him. And yet, here he is. Healthy as ever. Ollie cleared the dust from his coat. She was even more surprised how somepony like him could create a hole in the ground.

"Ollie. Are you alright?" Twilight asked.

"I'm fine." Ollie said.

"That fall could have killed you." Twilight said.

"Guess, I'm lucky." Ollie said.

"That was more than just luck." Twilight said.

Ollie gave Spike and Stanley a glare.

"What happened?" Stanley asked.

Ollie became more annoyed. He saw a stick on the ground and grabbed it with his hoof. He took Stanley's hat off and hit the stick on his head with one loud *TOCK*. Twilight closed her eyes and opened them again when she heard the *TOCK*. Stanley rubbed his head and began to wail in a comical way while Hardy threw the stick away.

After the accident, they went to Rarity to ask if she could repair Stanley's suit. She was happy to help, but a bit sad because she put so much work in those costumes. Luckily for her, it was just one that she can fix. They could also have asked Fluttershy and her freaky knowledge of sewing. When it got finished, everypony went towards Canterlot with a coach. Ollie and Stan were glad to pull the apple coach this time to thank them for everything their new friends have done for them. The girls gladly accepted it. Spike was on the coach pulling the reins just like the first time he went to the Gala.

"There it is, guys. Canterlot." Spike said.

Ollie and Stan's eyes went wide with excitement because of what they saw. A city with a castle that was stuck on a mountain.

"Isn't it beautiful, Ollie?" Stan asked.

"It certainly is." Ollie said.

"You guys will like the princess. She's the nicest ruler you'll ever meet." Spike said.

"We can't wait to meet her. Aren't we, Stanley?" Ollie asked.

"We sure do. You know I've been thinking." Stan said.

"What?" Ollie asked.

"What if the princess doesn't like us even if we're from somewhere else?" Stan asked.

"Didn't you just hear what Spike said? She's very nice. Of course, she would like us. Besides, she wants to meet us." Ollie said.

"She does?" Stan asked.

"Of course. Didn't you pay any attention to what Twilight said?"

Stan was about to nod, but suddenly stopped and started to think. Then he nodded for sure. Ollie gave him a look of annoyance.

"Let's keep moving." Ollie turned his attention to Spike. "How far is it to the castle?"

"Once we're in the city, it's just a few minutes to the castle." Spike said.

"I wonder how the princess even looks." Stanley said.

"Oh, she's a gem. Wait till you see her." Spike said.

Suddenly, Stanley tripped over a rock causing the coach to move a bit. Ollie saw and felt that.

"And pick your hooves up." Ollie said.

Twilight stuck her head out of the carriage.

"What happened?" Twilight asked.

"Stanley tripped over a rock." Ollie said.

"Be careful." Twilight said.

"We will." Ollie said while giving Stanley another glare.

After minutes of walking with the coach, they finally reached the castle. They weren't the only ones with a coach. There were more ponies who did the same thing. All were excited for their possible new best night ever. Ollie and Stan's coach stopped. Ollie motioned for Stanley to wait. He took the reins and all that stuff off and went to the coach door. He opened it and offered his hoof to help the girls step out one by one. All six of them were as beautiful as ever. They wore their original gala dresses.

"Thank you." Twilight said.

"You're a true gentlecolt, Mr. Hardy. I'm still surprised that it didn't went well with your wife." Rarity said.

"Maybe she wasn't the one for me." Ollie said.

"Come on, guys. Let's go. The Gala is not waiting for anypony." Rainbow said.

"You girls go ahead. Me and Stanley will bring the coach to a proper place." Ollie said.

"Okay." Twilight said.

"Come on! Let's paaartay!" Pinkie said.

The girls went inside the castle while the boys were looking for a place for the coach.

A few minutes later, the boys entered the castle.

"I can't believe you did that." Ollie said to Stan.

"I couldn't help it. And I was so hungry." Stanley said.

"Couldn't you have waited until we were in the castle?" Ollie asked.

While they walked they saw Twilight standing next to a white pony that was bigger than her, Stan and Ollie's eyes went wide. She was exhilaratingly beautiful. She had wings and a horn. And her mane was a mix of light cerulean, light turquouise, very light cobalt blue and pale heliotrope. She also had beautiful magenta eyes and her cutie mark is the sun. Twilight saw that the two were arguing a little.

"What's the matter?" Twilight asked.

"He took a bite out of the coach because it was an apple." Ollie said.

"Oh. Well, please don't eat it, Stanley. We need that coach to get back to Ponyville." Twilight said.

The white alicorn looked at the two stallions and suddenly a smile appeared on her face. She approached them and the two looked up at her.

"Is that the princess?" Ollie asked Twilight.

"Yes. Princess Celestia, these are the new friends I told you about." Twilight said.

"So you are the stallions that stopped the teenage dragons from attacking Ponyville. It's an honor to meet you." The princess said with a voice like silk and bowed before them.

"The honor is ours, Your Majesty." Ollie said and he and Stanley bowed before her.

The princess couldn't help but smile at the two stallions.

"I'm Mr. Hardy. Oliver Norvell Hardy." Ollie said and kissed her hoof. The princess also bowed her head. "This is my friend Mr. Stan Laurel."

Stanley was about to kiss her hoof and the princess was about to bow her head. But both accidentally knocked their heads against each other with one loud *TOCK*. They both rubbed their heads. Twilight saw that and placed a hoof to her mouth.

"My goodness, princess. Are you okay?" Twilight asked.

The princess shook her dizziness off and gave a smile. "I'm fine, Twilight. I just didn't expect that."

Stan did the same and Ollie gave him an annoyed look. "Couldn't you be more careful?"

"Well, I didn't know she would bow. I was about to kiss her hoof." Stan said.

Ollie rolled his eyes. The princess brought her attention back to the two.

"Like I was about to say, I'm happy to meet the stallions that saved Ponyville." She said.

"Well, it's mostly Spike you have to thank. He fought against the leader." Ollie said.

"If I heard Spike correctly, it was you who gave him the courage. There were some who said that you fought two of the dragons. Am I right?" The princess asked.

"That's right. Didn't we, Stanley?" Ollie asked.

"We sure did. Those wagons sure were out of fire." Stanley said.

"Not wagons. Dragons." Ollie corrected.

"Well, I'm very grateful for what you did that day. Welcome to Canterlot." The princess said with a smile.

"Why, thank you, Your Majesty." Ollie said.

Suddenly, the conversation is interrupted by the sound of trumpets. An announcer pony began to speak.

"Ladies and gentlecolts, announcing the arrival of... Do I really have to say all that?"

A creature began to whisper something in the pony's ear. The pony began to sigh.

"Fine. The much anticipated arrival of the spirit of chaos and disharmony, the purveyor of pandemonium, lord of lawlesness, earl of turmoil, bringer of bedlam. Discord! And his guest, the Smooze." The announcer said.

A very strange creature appeared at the entrance. A bizarre looking one with a deer antler, a goat horn, a lion paw, an eagle talon, a lizard leg, a goat leg and a snake tail. At his side appeared a green slime-like creature with only his mouth visible. They both had their same outfits from 'Make New Friends But Keep Discord'. The creature named Discord disappeared in a flash and reappeared next to the princess. He bowed for the princess.

"Good evening, Your Majesty. And may I say how happy I am for being invited again to the biggest night of the year. Me and Smoozy sure are honored." Discord said.

"I'm happy you could be here, Discord. We sure could use somepony to livin' up some things." Celestia said.

"The pleasure's all mine and with the help of Twilight and her good friends it'll be just fine." Discord said.

Stan and Ollie were staring at Discord and then looked at each other. Ollie leaned closer to Twilight.

"Who's that?" Ollie asked silently.

"That's Discord. He's the spirit of chaos and disharmony." Twilight said.

"Spirit of chaos?" Ollie asked.

"Yes. He was a bad guy, but don't worry, me and my friends stopped him twice and now he's on our side. He may be a bit bizarre at some moments, but he's sweet once you get to know him." Twilight said.

Discord turned his attention to Twilight. "And good evening to you, Twilight." And bowed before her.

"Nice to see you too, Discord...and your friend as well." Twilight said.

The creature known as the Smooze was smiling. Suddenly, Discord saw the fat and skinny stallions.

"Ooooh. Who have we here?" He asked with a look of interest.

"These are two of my new friends. Why don't you inroduce yourselves to him, boys?" Twilight asked.

Stan and Ollie nodded at each other.

"Good evening, Mr. Discord. I'm..." Ollie said but before he could finish his sentence, Discord interrupted.

"Oliver Norvell Hardy. And you must be Stan Laurel." Discord shook their hooves.

Ollie and Stan's eyes went wide when they heard him say their names.

"How do you know our names?" Stan asked.

"Hello. Spirit of Chaos. I know lots of things. For example, I know Twilight has an irrational fear for quesadillas." Suddenly Discord leaned closer to the two stallions and whispered. "Actually, I know that because Fluttershy told me."

Twilight heard the quesadilla part and spoke in defense. "I'm not afraid of quesadillas. They're just so...brrrrrr...cheesy." She shivered.

"Right." said Discord. "Anyway, I can't believe I'm meeting you two in person. What an honor."

"Wait. Do you know them?" Twilight asked.

"Not personally, but let me tell you. These are the greatest, funniest ponies you'll ever meet. The way they act, the way they speak. Hilarious! Hahahahahah." Discord laughed.

"What do you mean?" Princess Celestia asked.

"Oh, where should I start? There was the time when they had to clean up the house before Ollie's wife came home and in the end the house went on fire. Hahaha! Oh, and there was the time when they joined the Foreign Legion. Twice, just because he fell in love and tries to forget it because that girl was with somepony else. The first time they stopped an army of Riffians and the second time they got arrested for desertion and later took a plane. Oh, but that's not all. There was also the time when they tried to bring a piano to a house on top of a pair of stairs. Of all the silly stuff these two did, that one was my favorite. HAHAHAHAHA!" Discord laughed louder and uncontrollably making everypony look at him.

Ollie and Stan looked at each other and Ollie whispered to him. "He knows what we've all been through."

"A house on fire? That's terrible. And what is the Foreign Legion?" Twilight asked.

"Oh, that's..."

Discord was about to speak until he got grabbed by the two stallions.

"Pardon us. We just want a little chat with Discord here. Hm, hm, hm." Ollie said nervously and dragged Discord a little bit away from the princess and the new princess.

Twilight and Celestia looked quizzically at each other. Meanwhile, Stan, Ollie and Discord were just a few metres away from them.

"What else do you know about us?" Ollie asked with a serious look.

"Oh, well you once fought against a mean man with an army of bogeymen in a magical place called 'Toyland' and you once worked for one of the meanest bandits in Italy, Fra Diavolo." Discord said.

"Well, can you beat that. This fellow knows everything about us." Stanley said.

"So you know we're not from here." Ollie said.

"Yes. I do have to ask. How did you get in Equestria?" Discord asked with interest.

"How do we know if we can trust you?" Ollie asked.

"Oh, please. You think I'm going to tell a secret that could ruin your friendship with Twilight and her friends? That's something the old me would do. " Discord said and conjured an evil version of himself dressed with a cape and a top hat. Then he snapped his fingers and the evil version disappeared. "I just want to know how the greatest comedy duo of Earth came in a magical land filled with ponies. Is that so bad?"

"Well, you see it's like this. We came through a portal created by the professor. Didn't we, Ollie?" Stanley said.

Ollie gave him a stern look.

"Oh, Ollie. You don't have to be so hard on your friend. I knew that he was going to stupidly tell the answer. After all, isn't that what he always does?" Discord said.

Stan was about to say something, but Ollie spoke instead.

"Well, I guess there's no other way but to tell you it. Stanley is right. We became assistents of Professor Noodle to help him with his world travelling machine."

"Professor Noodle? The guy who created a juvenation potion?" Discord asked.

"Yes, the same guy. You know him?"

"Not personally. I know that you once worked as chimney cleaners to clean his chimney and when his invention was ready, you two were gonna try it on a fish. But Stanley accidentally pushed you in the tub and you changed into a chimpanzee. Hoho. Those were the days." Discord said with amusement.

"The most embarrassing day of my life." Ollie said.

"I bet Twilight doesn't know who you really are and where you come from." Discord said.

"Well, she thinks we're from Las Pegasus, but most of the other things we told her are true. You're not gonna tell her anything, are you?" Ollie asked.

"Hm." Discord thought. "I don't know."

"Oh, please. We can't just tell her and her friends where we come from. We don't want to ruin our friendship." Ollie said.

"Very well. Because I like you two. But remember, you have to tell them some day." Discord said.

"You promise you won't tell them anything?" Ollie asked.


"Pinkie promise?" Stan asked.

"Do I have to do that?" Discord asked.

"Please?" Stan asked.

"Oh, alright." Discord groaned in annoyance and against his wish he did the Pinkie promise. "Cross my heart, hope to fly, stick a cupcake in my eye. There. You happy?"

Stan and Ollie nodded. But suddenly, somepony was screaming. It was Rarity and she seems to be covered in green slime.

"That thing took my jewels!" Rarity yelled.

"Oh dear. I guess I forgot to keep my eyes on Smooze. He can be a real party animal sometimes. I see you two later. There's so much I want to ask you." Discord said. He suddenly snapped his fingers and a vaccuum cleaner appeared in his paw and claw.

While he walked away, Stan and Ollie looked at each other.

"Come, Stanley. Let's enjoy the party." Ollie said.

And they both went to the ballroom.

Everypony had a heck of a time especially our two stallions. Even the girls had a good time. Discord was talking to the girls about, guess who, and the girls couldn't help but laugh about their sillyness.

"And that's not all, when they were on their way to Dixie with the girl, Ollie fell in the water for the THIRD TIME! Hahahah!" Discord laughed.

The girls couldn't help but laugh hysterically.

"Hahaha! Three times in a row! How can anypony be that stupid?! Haha!" Rainbow laughed but suddenly noticed Ollie standing next to her with a displeased look. "Um, no offense, Ollie." She smiled nervously.

"Don't take it hard on her, Ollie. We just didn't know you had so many adventures together, not to mention that they were funny." Applejack said while trying to keep her laughter under control.

"And don't forget for being heroes who save damsels in distress." Rarity swooned.

"I sure loved the part when they brought that little filly to her grandparents." Fluttershy said.

"I loved the part when Ollie tried to do Stanley's lighter trick and when he succeeded he got scared. Hihihahaha." Pinkie laughed.

The girls laughed once more.

"Haha. I must tell all of this to the princesses. They sure could use some amusement." Discord said.

"Hoo-wee. I sure could use some punch. Anypony want to join me?" Applejack asked.

"I do! I do!" Pinkie said.

"Count me in." Rainbow said.

"Me too." Rarity said.

"Me three." Stanley said.

The girls went to the table where the punch stood and Stanley followed. But suddenly, he got dragged by Ollie.

"Just a moment. You might spill it. You stay here, I'll do it." Ollie said and followed the girls.

Stanley stood there all alone, he watched Discord talk to Princess Celestia and another alicorn. This one had a dark blue coat and was a bit smaller than Celestia. Her cutie mark represent a moon and she was just as beautiful as Celestia. The princesses laughed at the things Discord told about Ollie and Stan. Suddenly, Twilight came next to Stan with some two cups of punch in her magic aura.

"Here you go, Stan." She said.

Stan jumped a little bit by her unexpected appearance.

"You don't have to be scared. Here, your punch." Twilight said.

Stanley grabbed the cup and began to drink and looked at Discord and the princesses. A smile formed on his face when he drank the punch.

"Say, this is delicious."

"You like it. Berry Punch made it." Twilight said.

Stan gave a confused look. He was about to say something, but thought first.

"Are there berries in the punch or does the punch makes itself?" Stan asked.

"Oh, no." Twilight laughed by his question. "You don't understand. Berry punch is a pony from Ponyville. She helped making the punch."

"Oh." Stan said.

He looked at Discord and the princesses again.

"Say, Twilight. Who's the alicorn with the princess?" Stan asked.

"That's Princess Luna. She's Princess Celestia's younger sister. Unlike Celestia who controls the sun, Luna controls the moon. That's how the two maintain balance in Equestria." Twilight explained.

"The princesses control the sun and the moon?" said a voice.

Stan and Twilight turned their attention to the voice and saw it was Ollie.

"Why, yes. I'm still surprised you two don't know about all of this. Most everypony knows that." Twilight said.

Suddenly, the two princesses began to approach Twilight and the two stallions.

"We meet again, Mr. Laurel and Mr. Hardy." Celestia said.

"So these are the funny stallions that Discord talked about. We're pleased to meet you." Princess Luna said.

"I didn't know you two had so many adventures. I'd like to hear more about your adventures in person some day." Celestia said.

"We like to hear them too." Princess Luna said and looked at Stan. "You're quite a looker, Mr. Laurel. We like stallions who are brave and true. And most of all funny."

"Thanks." Stan said.

Ollie suddenly looked at the camera in disbelief.

"Enjoy the rest of the evening. Me and my sister still have some guests to welcome. Come, sister." Princess Celestia said.

Celestia went back to the entrance of the castle with her sister following, but Luna looked once again at Stanley before leaving. Ollie was looking at Stan.

"Come on, girls. I'm in the mood for some dancing." Twilight said.

"Count me in." Pinkie said.

"You two wanna join?" Rarity asked to Stan and Ollie.

"Maybe a little later. We want to drink another cup of punch." Ollie said.

"Okay. Then we'll see you in a bit." Applejack said.

The girls were going to the dancefloor while Stan and Ollie went to the table with punch. Ollie drank two cups while Stan drank more than two. They watched the girls dance. Twilight was doing her silly dance like always. Suddenly, two mares approached the two stallions with cute smiles on their faces. One of them was a unicorn with a magic mint coat, brilliant cyan mane and tail with a white streak, sunglow eyes, and a cutie mark of a lyre. The other is an Earth pony with a beige coat, pigment blue mane with a rose pink streak, cerulean eyes, and a cutie mark of three wrapped sweets. They both had beautiful gala dresses.

"Hey, aren't you the two stallions who fought against each other in town a few days ago?" The unicorn asked.

Ollie tried to remember the day and knew exactly what the unicorn was talking about.

"Yes." Ollie said.

"You're also the same stallions who saved Ponyville from those dragons, aren't you." the Earth pony said.

"Yes, we are." Ollie said.

"You two are awesome. Do you sign autographs?" The unicorn asked while bringing out a small book.

"Well, I'd love too. But I don't have any pen." Ollie said.

Stanley heard that and brought out a pen from his suit and gave it to Ollie. Ollie saw it and jumped a bit. He slowly grabbed the pen with his mouth while giving Stanley a weird look.

"Thank you." Ollie said.

"You're welcome." Stanley said.

Ollie took the book from the mare's hoof and try to find out how he's going to write his autograph with hooves instead of hands. Then he tried to write with the pen in his mouth. He wrote very carefully to make sure it's not messed up. Finally, he did.

"What are your names?" Ollie asked.

"Name's Lyra. And this is my best friend Bon Bon." The unicorn said.

The autograph is written in Lyra's book. He gave it to Stan who became a little tipsy from the punch.

"Would you mind write your autograph in the lady's book?" Ollie asked Stan.

Stan grabbed the pen and the book and wrote his autograph in it. Ollie then paid his attention to Bon Bon.

"You want an autograph too, darling?"

"Yes, thank you." The Earth Pony said kindly and gave Ollie a small book too.

When Stanley was finished with his autograph, he gave it back to Lyra while Ollie wrote the other book. When he was ready, he gave it to Stan so he could write once more. And when Stan was ready, he gave it back to Bon Bon.

"Thank you very much, Mr...Hardy." Lyra said while reading the autograph.

"You're very welcome." Ollie said.

"You two are awesome." Lyra said.

"Why thank you, dear." Ollie said.

"Maybe we can hang out some day. Just the four of us." Stanley said in a tipsy way.

"That sounds fun." Bon Bon said.

"Sounds alright for me." Lyra said.

"Than it's settled. Enjoy your evening, ladies." Ollie said.

"Thank you. You too." Bon Bon said.

"We will." Ollie said and waved with his hat.

The two mares walked further and Lyra couldn't help but smile.

"Oh ho. I can't believe we got their autographs." Lyra said with excitement.

"They sure are fun guys." Bon Bon said.

While the mares were gone, a smile began to appear on Stanley's face while he looked at his cup. Suddenly he began to chuckle. Then the chuckles turned into laughs. Ollie heard him and gave him a weird look. Stanley kept laughing. Ollie smiled a bit too but then he regains his serious look. Stanley's laughs became louder making everypony look at him with weird looks on their faces.

"What are you laughing at?" asked Ollie.

But Stanley kept laughing and it became hysterical with the minute. Then he tried to tell Ollie by motioning him to come closer, laughing while he did. He leaned closer to Ollie's ear.

"Imagine if we got married to ponies." Stanley said and laughed further and louder.

Also Ollie began to laugh at that moment. Everypony was looking at them with confusion. The two kept on laughing. Twilight and her friends came back and saw the two laughing. All but Pinkie had a confused look.

"Those two must have a great time. Or maybe they had too much." Pinkie said.

The girls approached the two stallions who were still laughing.

"What's so funny?" Twilight asked.

The two kept laughing and tried to speak.

"You tell them." Stanley said to Ollie.

"No, you tell them." Ollie laughed.

They kept laughing until Stanley finally spoke. But then Ollie stopped laughing when realisation struck him.

"We were imagining if we would marry with..." Stanley said but was cut off by Ollie who wrapped his hoof around Stanley's mouth.

"Haha. Stanley drank too much punch that he doesn't know what he's saying." Ollie said.

"Wait. I wanna hear the funny part." Pinkie said whil taking Ollie's hoof from Stan's mouth.

Ollie began to bite his hoof and gave Stanley a pleading look.

"I was imagining what it would be if I married Princess Luna." Stanley said.

Ollie's eyes went wide and looked at the camera. The girls all were silent some of their eyes went big. But suddenly...

"HAHAHAHAHAH! That is really funny." Pinkie said.

"Whoa whoa whoa. Are you saying you fell for the princess?" Rainbow asked.

"I don't know. I just had that thought." Stanley said.

"Ooooh. I guess somepony has a crush on one of the princesses." Applejack said.

"Him? On the princess? I'm not so sure. He just drank too much punch." Ollie said.

"He does look a little tipsy." Twilight said while looking at Stanley.

"And besides, if it was true than there's no shame in hiding your feelings." Rarity said.

"Say, girls. How about we dance this time with you?" Ollie asked.

"We'd sure love that." Twilight said.

Then Pinkie got an idea and ran to the orchestra ponies. She whispered something in their ears and they started to play. While Stan, Ollie and the girls went on the dancefloor, Ollie and Stan heard the orchestra and heard something familiar in it. Stanley pointed at it with a smile and Ollie smiled too. Suddenly Ollie took off his hat and began to sing. While he sang, Stanley began to dance.

"Shine on, shine on, harvest moon
Up in the sky;
I ain't had no lovin'
Since January, April, June or July.
Snow time, ain't no time to stay
Outdoors and spoon;
Shine on, shine on, harvest moon,
For me and my gal."

Then they both started to dance. The girls couldn't help but dance too. After the dance and song were over, they all went back to the table.

"That was amazing, Ollie." Twilight said.

"I didn't know you had such a beautiful singing voice." Rarity said.

"It sure was lovely." Fluttershy said.

Ollie blushed a little. "Well, there's more that you don't know about me."

"You should sing again sometime." Pinkie said.

Twilight began to yawn. "I guess we all better go back home. I'm tired."

"Yeah, I sure could use my nap." Rainbow said.

"I'm pretty tired too." Ollie said.

"Me too." Stanley said.

Suddenly, Discord appeared ot of nowhere startling the boys and the girls.

"Oh, do you have to leave already?" Discord asked. "The night is still young."

"We would love to, Discord. But I spend too much time reading books last night and I could use a good sleep." Twilight said.

"You really must stop with the late night reading, Twilight. It's not good for your health." Discord said and turned his attention to Fluttershy. "We still have tea time tomorrow, right?"

"Of course." Fluttershy said.

"Well, then I bid you all a good night. And to you two too. I hope we could spend more time with each other. I haven't even introduced you to Smooze. Smoozeface. The Smoozinator. That's what we call him at college." Discord said while introducing Smooze to Stan and Ollie.

Smooze seemed really happy to see the two. Stan and Ollie nervously smiled and waved at the green mass of blob.

"Maybe we can. Good night, Discord." Ollie said.

Now they were on their way to go home.

"Say, Ollie. You and Stan won't forget to come to Sugarcube Corner tomorrow to help me, do you?" Pinkie asked.

Ollie and Stan looked at each other and smiled.

"We'd be glad too." Ollie said.

"Than it's settled. Well, sleep tight, everypony." Pinkie said.

"Sleep tight." Everypony said.

Oh gosh, I remember watching those two when I was a kid. Now I wanna rewatch them again to see what I missed.

7119320 I've never heard of them. Any good movies you'd recommend?


I totally recommend Our Relations. That movie is a cracker of laughter! You can easily find it on Youtube!

PS: Don't you dare watch it in colors!

7703409 I've seen it. I even have that one in my collection. It's the movie where Stan and Ollie play a double role as their brothers Bert and Alf. I know, it's hilarious. Looks like someone knows good humor when he sees it.

7701583 That's a splendid idea.

7701974 Let's see. You've got Way Out West, Saps at Sea, A Chump at Oxford. Fra Diavolo and Babes in Toyland is also terrific. Just to name a few. But there are also hilarious shorts. There's a short that won the Academy Award for Live Action Short Film. It's called 'The Music Box'.


I can't wait to see Fluttershy and Stanley making that trademark cry of his after Oliver says "Here is another nice mess you've gotten me into."

I don't know why I said Fluttershy and Stanley. I just thought it up!

7707390 When you say it like that, it sure sounds funny. Maybe I will. Maybe I will. And Stan's trademark cry will surely happen more.


I think I have a glimpse on how you will make Laurel and Hardy mop the floor out of the villains:

Hardy has that "HORNS" problem.
Laurel has his "Lord Paddington" persona.

Only real Laurel and Hardy connaiseurs know what I am talking about.

7709761 Oh yeah. Well, I want to keep some things a suprise. So I won't tell anything yet.


Of course you won't! I'm just speculating out loud that's all!

7709899 Say, you also seem to know a lot about Laurel and Hardy. Are you a big fan like me?


I watch Laurel and Hardy in French channels since I was 5 so yes I am a big big fan of Laurel and Hardy!

7711275 I need to watch LAUREL and HARDY

Rowan Atkinson. Want to do that?

7902165 I can think about that. Could be a possibility in the future.

7902939 Mr. Bean. Who could forget him?

7902949 :pinkiesmile: No one, of course. He's one of my favorite funny characters. I love Atkinson.

7903005 The Barbarian? I'm thinking about it.

7903133 No, it's Conan O'Brien.

7903153 Oh, that Conan. Sorry, wrong guy. :twilightsheepish:

Apparently, dear readers of this story, there's gonna be a Laurel and Hardy movie in 2018 with Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly. It's gonna be called 'Stan and Ollie'.

My most favorite comedians in the world:)

When I saw the description and title I was like, "OH MY GOD; NO WAY!!!" I was so happy as I love those two so much, I've got all their films and shorts on a Box Set of mine.

Awesome! I have all of them too. Except Air Raid Wardens and Nothing But Trouble. Still need to watch Nothing But Trouble.

I loved this chapter, the song you had Ollie sing was great and have them imitate their dance in that scene was simply wonderful.

Is there a chance for a new chapter to come here?
(please let it come:pinkiesad2:)

I'm working on it. I already have a title.

This chapter, along with thinking about Stanley and Luna, made me want to see a shipping between the two.

Is there an AS in the story ?

No. This story is based on the greatest comedy duo that ever existed plus their movies.

I know you guys are also waiting for this story to continue, but don't worry. While I'm busy with Disney Chronicles, I'm also trying to get busy on the new chapter for this one. I already have a title and a few ideas.

Hello, dear readers. While I'm busy with The Disney Chronicles as well as some possible new ones, I'm also getting close on starting a new chapter of this story. I already have a title. But there's a question I need to ask if you're there. Recently, a new DeviantArt picture of a ponyfied Laurel and Hardy has appeared giving me more ideas for the story.


So I'm asking what you would like best as their cutie marks to see if I can put some changes in the previous chapters. What's best in your opinion? Film reels or bowler hats? Let me know.
