Early Our Gang Short Featuring Wheezer
14 March 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short. When a new little arrival comes to Wheezer's home, he finds himself neglected & depressed. Unable to get any positive attention (making breakfast pancakes out of Plaster of Paris only makes matters worse) and wanting no more BOUNCING BABIES around the house, he decides to take his new brother back to the hospital and ask the nurse to return him to Heaven.

This is an adequate little comedy, but nowhere close to any of the Rascals' classics. Chubby is funny as a Halloween demon with a spooky voice. Wheezer has a very interesting way of getting himself & Pete across the very busy street near his home - but it makes you wonder why his mother would allow the tiny tyke so close to such dangerous traffic.
