Watchin' Grandma's Store With The Little Rascals
17 May 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

Jackie, Farina, Chubby & the rest of the Gang are HELPING GRANDMA run her little grocery store. After 55 years in business, there's a possibility that a chain store enterprise may buy her out at a good profit. But when a dishonest charlatan gets involved & attempts to cheat the old lady, it's time for serious action.

A good little film with both laughs & tears. Notice how the older Rascals vacate the whole midsection of the film, so as to showcase the younger generation. Highlight: Stymie's `smell test'. That's Margaret Mann playing Grandma.
