Gettin' Mushy With The Little Rascals
11 June 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

Jackie & Chubby have LOVE BUSINESS on their mind: they both are infatuated with their teacher, Miss Crabtree. When they each try to declare their passion on the same evening, things get a bit complicated...

A very funny little film. Highlights: Chubby & Dorothy's dialogue; eating the moth ball soup. The inimitable Stymie also has some choice moments. That's June Marlowe as pretty Miss Crabtree.

This is the film that provides the famous shot of Chubby kissing `Garbo'. Sharp-eyed movie mavens will recognize Charley Chase & Thelma Todd in the large movie poster behind Chubby.
