Trivia

Jackie Cooper and Donald Haines do not appear in the concluding scenes of this short. Anonymous stand-ins were used. Cooper and Haines were over at Paramount filming Skippy (1931). This was Jackie Cooper's final Our Gang comedy short, because Hal Roach sold his contract to Metro Goddwyn Mayer, after Jackie Cooper completed his acting on theatrical movie, Skippy (1931).

Bargain Day turned out to be Jackie Cooper's final Our Gang appearance
22 October 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, Bargain Day, is the one hundred sixth in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series and the eighteenth talkie. In this one, Chubby tries on every hat in the store but nothing seems right for him. It's during this time that we find out Wheezer sold many of the gang's items so they go out looking for him. Wheezer and Stymie end up at rich girl Shirley's house which has a monkey inside. I'll stop there and just say that I found most of this hilarious despite some lines that play on stereotypes of Stymie's race. I especially loved the "Watt Street" routine between Wheezer, Stymie, and Shirley which reminded me of Abbott & Costello's "Who's on First!". Of note: former Our Gang member Mickey Daniels was the laughing voice of the monkey and this turned out to be Jackie Cooper's final appearance in the series as he would shoot the feature Skippy during retakes and after that film's success, Hal Roach would sell Cooper's contract to Roach's distributor M-G-M to work on features full-time. When continuing to review these shorts in chronological order, I may stop once in while to also review films outside the series featuring many of these Our Gangers in movies that come between many of these entries. So on that note, I very much recommend Bargain Day.
