Choo-Choo! was a very hilarious Our Gang short
25 October 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, Choo-Choo!, is the one hundred fourteenth in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series and the twenty-sixth talkie. An almost-exact remake of the silent A Pleasant Journey, the gang once again switch places with some orphans at a train stop and constantly bother the man in charge of taking them to their new home. I'll stop there and just mention if you only saw these on TV during the '70s-'80s, you probably only saw the King World Productions prints which only had the opening credits with the company name, followed by the series title "The Little Rascals in" before the episode title then showed. Fortunately, a video cassette company named Cabin Fever issued the original M-G-M/Hal Roach prints with those original credits as seen in theatres during their time of release. As a result, not only do those credits-which during that time started to have more creative artwork in them-appear in their original form, they're in the clearest prints possible! And also-as also happened with the next ep, The Pooch-you get to see Spanky, in only his third short, have an insert before the production credits saying "Hello, folks!" before laughing! This is also on the DVD collection I bought a few years ago and it's where I just watched this short. Anyway, Choo-Choo! is hilarious so that's definitely a recommendation.
