The Cobbler was another amusing "Our Gang" effort
1 February 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this short, The Cobbler, the eighth in a series of "Our Gang/Little Rascals" films that started in 1922, the gang hangs around Mr. Tuttle's shop. Among the customers: rich girl Mary who the boys instantly become smitten with. Mickey tries to get her attention by bending his thumb backwards, Jack wiggles his ear, and Jackie chews some nails! Earlier, Farina almost ate some tacks. Good thing both boys had the sharp objects removed! After Mary leaves and Mr. Tuttle receives his back pension, the boys go on a picnic as they encounter car trouble and a tramp who resides at the open park...Among the gags I didn't mention: Pete the Pup turns out to be scared of the store cat, Mr. Tuttle's car goes backward after Jackie ties the rope from a truck behind them going the opposite way, and Farina has a big stomach after hanging around some watermelons at the park then we find out he hid one under his shirt! This very amusing short was the first solo effort of Tom McNamara after collaborating with resident helmer Robert McGowan on 5 of the first six "Our Gang" entries. His next one, Boys to Board, was his last. Kudos to the YouTube poster for adding LeRoy Shield's music score from the "Little Rascals" talkies here. Also appearing here was Mickey Daniels' father, Richard, as Mr. Tuttle. Once again, I highly recommend The Cobbler for any fan of the gang and anyone who loves silent comedy.
