Better Watch Out!, 16 May 2014
Author: ( from United States

The Our Gang and friends go bear shooting but run into gorilla and criminals on the run. These short films were often showed before a film presentation. Jackie Cooper is adorable. As somebody who grew up watching the Little Rascals in syndication. The kid actors here and in others always seemed to have more fun and adventure. For the Our Gang, Hollywood came of age even during the Great Depression. The Little Rascals traveled a little bit before the overdevelopment of the soon to be metropolis of Los Angeles. Hollywood was still a small town during the Our Gang days. These short films with Little Rascals are always memorable. The kids in these shorts always try to act like adults.
