Hog Wild is a 1930 American Pre-Code Laurel and Hardy film, directed by James Parrott.
Ollie wants to join Stan for an afternoon of fun, but his wife has other ideas. She demands he install the radio antenna atop their roof, a job he has been neglecting for three months. Soon, Stan stops by to "help" his friend. After destroying Hardy's chimney and falling from the roof several times, they perch a ladder in the back seat of Stan's car. The car shifts into gear, and speeds uncontrollably through the city streets with Ollie still perched precariously atop the ladder.
Mrs. Hardy catches up to them on foot after the car is finally stopped, Hardy having been tossed into the street with the ladder. The three attempt to return home while Laurel tries all kinds of noisy things to get the car restarted, including blowing the horn twice. A trolley car approaches them at high speed, and a crowd of onlookers cover their eyes as a loud offscreen crash is heard. The result is the car is squashed like an accordion between two trolleys, and they have to drive home in the mangled car.
