''Big Business'' is a 1929 short film starring Creator/LaurelAndHardy. Here, Stan and Ollie are going door-to-door, trying to sell Christmas trees in suburban Los Angeles. They bumble their way around until they wind up greatly irritating one particular homeowner (played by frequent L&H antagonist Jimmy Finlayson); Stan keeps getting his tree stuck in said homeowner's door, and they have to keep ringing the bell to get it out. When Stan rings the bell again and tries to get an advance order on a Christmas tree for next year, the homeowner snaps and wrecks their tree. Stan, in retaliation, vandalizes the homeowner's front door. The homeowner starts slicing up their clothes. This starts a rapidly escalating war of destruction in which Stan and Ollie set about wrecking the man's little bungalow and garden while the homeowner dedicates himself to annihilating Stan and Ollie's trees and their Model T Ford.

* BadAss: Stan and Ollie are strong enough to rip down the homeowner's door, but the homeowner takes the cake-he completely demolishes their car without any difficulty, and even rips off the fuel tank!

* TrashTheSet: Laurel and Hardy wrecked a real Los Angeles house for this short. An [[UrbanLegends urban legend]] maintains that it was actually the wrong house, but this is most likely too good to be true.
