I'm no fan of the Little Rascals, but this was pretty good
21 May 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I grew up with the sound incarnations of the Little Rascals and I had never seen a silent one in its entirety until this short. While it has not converted me to a fan of their work, I must admit I liked it far more than the Alfalfa and Spanky-era Rascals. Most of the reason I liked it was because it offered a backstage look at Hal Roach Studios, though in the film the name of the studio was fictionalized. You were given glimpses of the film making process and there was a cute little cameo with Harold Lloyd (who at the time was also working for Roach). According to the DVD case, Harold was working on SAFETY LAST when the Rascals interrupt, but this is clearly wrong. The set is that of his film WHY WORRY?. I think kids might like this movie a little more, but there was enough for adults that I think anyone willing to give a silent short a chance would probably like this film.
