Pretty cute.
6 March 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The first portion of "Back Stage" shows the Gang with a taxi service consisting of a seemingly home-made car and it's powered by a donkey! You really have to see it--it's a great sight gag.

Eventually, the kids are brought in to help a guy who has just lost most of his actors in his vaudeville house. He obviously had to be pretty desperate to do this and not surprisingly, they make a huge mess of everything. The worst of the mess was when one of the kids' bug collection is unleashed. I also liked when the strongman, Bicepto, has his act ruined. None of it is brilliant but it is consistently funny and cute. Worth seeing even after almost 90 years.
