Storyline

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 <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Crazy Credits

The Opening Credits of three Hal Roach "Little Rascal" shorts, that are two-reel film shorts are verbally introduced, by identical twin sisters, Betty Mae Crane & Beverly Crane, instead of being printed on screen. The duo verbally introduced just three "Little Rascals" films. They are Teacher's Pet (1930), School's Out (1930) and Love Business (1931). During their rotating verbal introduction, one starts with the names of the director(s), then the other says the producer(s) and they keep rotating, (back and forth) until they verbally mention all other leading staff member names, then the title of the short that is/was about to be played. After their co-introductions are completed, they conclude with a quick and light bow and speaking in unison, to the theatre audience, saying "We thank you." Then in two to three seconds, the short, they very politely and verbally introduced, with the title's top staff of members' proper names are completed, the short begins. See more »

Cute...and a nice chance for Jackie to show he was quite the actor.
28 November 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The gang's beloved teacher is leaving because she's getting married. When they hear that their new teacher is named Miss Crabtree, they assume she's a nasty old prune--and the kids plan a series of horrible pranks to play on her to get her to leave. However, Jackie meets the new teacher and doesn't realize it's her--and he's infatuated with her! Won't he be surprised when he goes to school! But what about all those nasty pranks?!

Jackie Cooper has his best opportunity to shine as a member of Our Gang in this one. And, quite frankly, he's adorable and very good in the lead. Also, this film is important because it marks the first appearance by Stymie Beard's--who would eventually replace Farina and become one of the more beloved members of this ensemble cast. It also gives Wheezer a chance to upstage them all in his small appearance near the end. Overall, one of the more entertaining episodes of Our Gang--and one well worth seeing. It's sweet and fun from start to finish.
