Tears & Laughter With The Little Rascals, 15 May 2000
Author: Ron Oliver ( from Forest Ranch, CA

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

Living with their wicked stepmother, Wheezer & Dorothy discover that DOGS IS DOGS when the evil woman threatens Pete, but protects nasty Sherwood's pedigreed Nero. Things start to move fast, however, when Sherwood falls down a well & Pete is accused of killing the neighbor's chickens.

A very good little film, with equal measures of comedy & tears. It's difficult to watch Wheezer being beaten. Standout performance from the inimitable Stymie. Highlight: Stymie's ham & eggs story. That's Billy Gilbert as the crazed neighbor with the gun.
