Lauren and Hardy are a mermaid and merman who live in the seas of Monster World. When Shion ventured into the seas, the marine people swam up to him and asked him who he was, his amulet allowing them to understand each other. Shion asked if Lauren and Hardy had seen any wagons, but they were rather reluctant to tell him that they'd gone to the dangerous Great Deep. Watching as Shion went that way anyway (without any thanks), the creatures worry that he's going to get into trouble.
- Lauren and Hardy are named after comedy double act Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy.
- Writer Mark Eyles made a common mistake by using the line "a fine mess", taken from the frequently misidentified quote "Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into!" Even so, letterer Steve Potter missed out the word "another" or "a" altogether, making the sentence "gonna get into fine mess" make no sense.
