Wheezer Learns A Big Lesson and Petey Helps Provide Laughs
16 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although Wheezer is the star of this story, I liked "Petey" the dog best. He was a talented canine. He even knew how to dress Wheezer, who would prefer having him mom do it. However, as she says, it's time for him to become a boy, not a baby. You see, he's jealous of the family's little baby because he isn't getting the attention he used to get. This is an age-old problem, as many families can attest.

Anyway, Petey has some funny scenes with Wheezer and even eats his pancakes, the poor dog - "poor" because the dumb kid uses plaster of Paris instead of flour! (Once again, Wheezer's mom told him to grow up and since she called him four times for breakfast and wouldn't get out of bed, he had to make his own which is like asking The Three Stooges to cook something!

Later Wheezer runs away from home with more funny comments and results, especially when (1) ghosts and goblins scare he and Farina; (2) he comes back and kidnaps the baby, hoping to bring it back to the hospital and trade it for a goat!

Overall, this turned out to be a good short with plenty of laughs. It also features a decent picture and cleaned-up audio, as it's part of the DVD set "The Little Rascals: The Complete Collection."
