Shows just how much so many kids love dogs!
8 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Dogs Is Dogs", despite the (appropriately selected title) says a lot about dogs, and how so many children love them. Pete the Pup, much a part of the Our Gang Comedy scene, was loved by Wheezer, but his step brother Spud did not appreciate such love between kid and dog. Spud loved his OWN pooch Nero more; when Nero devoured one of a neighbor's chickens, Spud blamed poor Pete, whom Mr. Brown tried to shoot dead! The cop stopped that but Pete had no license, so ended up in the dog pound. Dorothy and Wheezer's aunt, their father's sister, saw how upset Wheezer was, as their stepmother refused the $2 for Pete's license, but their aunt paid it. (Lyle Tayo, playing the aunt, was in numerous Our Gang shorts, sometimes as a nice lady, as in this episode, in others as a dasmal-dame mother, like "Readin' and Writin'", even as a disagreeable old crone, as the headmistress in "Mush and Milk".) This Our-Ganger did not start out well, as Wheezer was spanked unjustly by the stepmother, as if she regarded spanking as the best punishment in the world (which it is NOT)! Yet it had a happy ending, when Wheezer and Dorothy were taken under care of their aunt, who would look after them until Daddy got well, and moved out of the home of the stepmother and stepbrother. Indeed, I had just two years ago an experience reminiscent of this episode, when I moved from cramped apartment to much roomier and more convenient one; I said good-by to neighbors at former apartment building, and felt slight twinge; by same token, Wheezer was a bit sad at moving away from Stymie, a pal living nearby, but he tagged along. So, it ended well, and is eloquent of what dogs mean to kids
