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 Rascals" shorts were verbally spoken, by identical twin sisters, instead of being printed on screen. The duo verbally introduced Teacher's Pet (1930), School's Out (1930) and Love Business (1931). Then, they verbally mentioned the names of the director(s), producer(s) & other leading staff member names, then the title of the short that is about to play. After their introductions were completed, they concluded with a light bow and spoke in unison, to the audience, saying "We thank you". See more »

It's A New Teacher For The Little Rascals
23 April 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

It's pretty Miss Crabtree's first day as teacher at the Gang's school. Jackie, Chubby & Farina have plans to make her day miserable (red ants & sneezing powder), but she has plans of her own that just might turn the tables on the Rascals - especially her new TEACHER'S PET, Jackie.

A funny little film. Wheezer, Dorothy & Stymie (called `Hercules' here, this was his first OUR GANG appearance) are especially good. Highlight: Chubby & Dorothy's echo dialogue. This was June Marlowe's first appearance as Miss Crabtree.
