Trivia

Jackie Cooper and Donald Haines do not appear in the final scenes of this short; anonymous stand-ins are used. Cooper and Haines were over at Paramount filming Skippy (1931). This would be Cooper's final Our Gang comedy, as Hal Roach sold his contract to MGM after Cooper completed work on "Skippy". See more »

Bargain Day (1931)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Our Gang short has Stymie and Wheezer playing door-to-door salesmen who aren't very good at selling anything. They eventually end up at the house of a rich but lonely girl and sure enough trouble follows when the rest of the gang shows up. This here is a pretty weak short in the series as the screenplay doesn't contain any funny moments and for the most part you can't help but feel this thing is rather desperate. For starters, the desperation really comes through because there are countless scenes that feature nothing but Stymie or Wheezer smiling at the camera. This is certainly cute the first time but I lost count of how many times they tried this and it eventually got old since they didn't add any laughs with it. The stuff with Stymie and the monkey is rather unfunny as is Wheezer's attempts to sell stuff. The only funny bit happens at the very start of the film when Chubby keeps trying on different hats.
