Here's a commercial for Arby's featuring Wolfman Jack and some Laurel & Hardy impersonators.
"The names of the two Laurel & Hardy impressionists who appear are Jim MacGeorge (Who plays Stan Laurel) and Chuck McCann (who Plays Oliver Hardy). MacGeorge is also known for doing voice overs for many tv cartoon series: EG "Capt. Huffenpuff" for "The Beany & Cecil Show" and "Whimper" For "Clue Club" and "Woofer & Whimper:Dog Detecives". McCann has also done voice overs for many tv cartoon series and for radio and tv commercials. He has also acted in many tv commercials, in the movies and on many tv series. McCann was also the host/performer of many former NYC based kids tv shows EG's "Laurel & Hardy & Chuck!", "Let's Have Fun!", "The Chuck McCann Shows", "The Great Bombo's Magic Cartoon Circus Lunchtime Show" and "Chuck McCann's L&H Hardy Show". (On "L&H&C" he didn't play Oliver Hardy in the flesh - he voiced and manipulated an Oliver Hardy Hand puppet. He played Oliver Hardy as a real person and oftimes as a hand puppet on "Chuck McCann's L&H Show")" - 143AC
