The beloved Miss McGillicuddy has left school and the gang is faced with a new teacher, one Miss Crabtree, whose name alone suggests a mean old lady to the gang. They plot several means of running off the new teacher, including ants, sneezing powder, and a mouse. On the way to school, one of the gang, Jackie, is picked up by a lovely lady who asks him about his school. Jackie reveals all the gang's plans to ruin things for Miss Crabtree. The only problem is that a sweet young woman Jackie has hitched a ride with is none other than... Miss Crabtree. Written by Jim Beaver <>

Teacher's Pet (1930)

*** (out of 4)

Miss Crabtree (June Marlowe) is the new teacher at the school where the gang goes and they plan on making her first day miserable but she has her own plan to get the group's affection. This here is certainly one of the better shorts in the Our Gang series up to this point. The majority of the charm has to go to Marlowe in her first appearance as Miss Crabtree. She has a few spots where her line reading isn't very good but she's attractive enough and charming enough to keep a smile on your face. Jackie Cooper is also very good in his role as the one who has a crush on her but is too embarrassed to say anything. Chubby and Dorothy get a very good sequence where she's constantly dubbing what he says and Wheezer is on hand for one of the highlights in the film. There's plenty of nice laughs throughout this short as well as some nice usage of the sound effects.
