Mary Ann Jackson tells Miss Crabtree June Marlowe in one scene, "We hope you don't get married until you're 80 years old." Coincidentally, that's how old June Marlowe was when she died in 1984.See more »

School's Out is a worthy follow-up to the previous Our Gang short, Teacher's Pet, 18 October 2014
Author: tavm from Baton Rouge, La.

This Hal Roach comedy short, School's Out, is the one hundred second in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series and the fourteenth talkie. After the printed title of "Our Gang Comedies-Hal Roach presents His Rascals in School's Out" and Beverly and Betty Mae Crane mention the production credits, we see Jackie passing a petition to the rest of the gang to continue school for the summer as he's afraid Miss Crabtree-who he has a massive crush on-will get married like the previous teacher and leave her job. I'll stop there and just say that while there might be some uncomfortable stereotypical humor-Farina mentions looking forward to some watermelon, his dad is in jail, and the cover of a Minstrel joke book is shown-this was a mostly harmless and very funny short and it's almost as good as its predecessor, Teacher's Pet. Once again, June Marlowe is very charming as Miss Crabtree. So on that note, School's Out is highly recommended.
