December 3, 2018 (Spring Valley) - Saps at Sea, the San Diego chapter of the Sons of the Desert, the official Laurel & Hardy fan organization, invites you to their last meeting of the year on December 29 at 7:00 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) at Williams Hall at Trinity Presbytarian Church in Spring Valley.

A late Christmas gift or early New Years fun! Starting out with a Mickey Mouse cartoon, the Saps will celebrate Mickey’s 90th birthday.

The special short is “Big Business” (1929) with another lively music score by the Saps' own Russ Peck at the keyboard. Homeowner James Finlayson does not want a Christmas tree in July from salesmen Stan and Ollie.
The Saps will celebrate the time of year with one of Laurel and Hardy fans' favorite films “Babes in Toyland” (1934), also known as “March of the Wooden Soldiers.” Stannie Dum and Ollie Dee work in Santa's Toyshop. Surrounded by most of the memorable fairy tale characters like Little Bo-Peep, The Cat and The Fiddle, the Three Little Pigs and a special appearance by Mickey Mouse! What happens when the Evil Barnaby (the Great Henry Brandon) wants his Mortgage paid?
This month's guest film comedians are Jackie Gleason & The Honeymooners.  

Donation is $6 per person.  For more information, visit the Saps at Sea Facebook page.
