Olsen and Johnson's followup to their zany, iconoclastic Hellzapoppin' was the more conventional Crazy House. The premise: Having nearly laid waste to Universal while filming Hellzapoppin', O & J are thrown out of the studio when they arrive with plans for a new picture.

Olsen and Johnson were zany American comedians of vaudeville, radio, the Broadway stage, motion pictures, and television. Their shows were noted for their crazy blackout gags and orchestrated mayhem ("anything can happen, and it probably will"). Their most famous concept, Hellzapoppin', has become show-business shorthand for free-wheeling, anything-goes comedy; it enjoyed a lengthy run on Broadway and spawned a movie version.
