Jitterbugs is a 1943 Laurel and Hardy feature film produced by Sol M. Wurtzel. The plot involves the team as a travelling two-man band selling "gas pills" in gas-short, wartime America. The film is notable for its dance sequences and the interaction between the duo with Vivian Blaine and Lee Patrick. Blaine, who later starred in the Broadway production of Guys and Dolls, was among those who honored Laurel and Hardy during their December 1954 appearance on NBC's This is Your Life.
There are currently two Chapters of the Sons of the Desert, The International Laurel and Hardy Appreciation Society named after the movie Jitterbugs. Stan Laurel wrote a mock constitution before he died and stated that each chapter must be name after one of the duos films. Two Jitterbugs Tents exist, one in Holland, where the Grand Sheik is Hans Lightenburg. The other is in Ireland and the Grand Sheik is Liam Muldowney..
