It's A New Teacher For The Little Rascals, 23 April 2000
Author: Ron Oliver ( from Forest Ranch, CA

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.
