Unidentified Rooftop Barnyard Comedy Clip

The long shots and style of thrill comedy suggest Larry Semon, but when we get a medium shot of the farmer it looks like William S. Hart’s slapstick twin. Any ideas?

It's Lee Moran, could be from a early-mid-20's Century/Fox/ or Educational Mermaid Comedy, he was all over the place then.

It's from Moran's Fox short UP ON THE FARM ('25).
