TCM Stars of the Month December 2020: Laurel and Hardy

Stan Laurel (r.) and Oliver Hardy in Sons of the Desert (Dec. 7, 9:30 PM)

We're into the first full week of a new month, so we're finally getting a new Star of the Month on TCM. Technically, we're getting two stars of the month, since the honoree is the comedy duo of Laurel and Hardy. Their films will be airing on three Mondays in prime time, with the 21st being given over to the Christmas movie marathon that's running all of the week leading up to Christmas.

Actually, we're not just getting prime time, as Laurel and Hardy made a whole bunch of shorts and many of those are running in the afternoons, starting this afternoon at 12:30 PM with Do Detectives Think?. The duo's first feature was Pardon Us, if you can call it a feature at just under an hour. In any case, it's running at 8:00 PM tonight.

One thing that I didn't see mentioned on the schedule, or in TCM's article on the programming salute, is Tree in a Test Tube, which I've actually posted in the past:
