Catching Crooks With The Little Rascals
10 April 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short

A wealthy matron is giving FREE EATS to the poor kiddies of the town at her mansion. A `family' of crooks thinks this would be an excellent opportunity for the `babies' - actually two midgets

  • to steal pocketbooks & jewelry. Fortunately Stymie and


the Rascals are on hand...

A funny film, with good performances from all the little people. Film mavens will recognize Billy Gilbert & Paul Fix as `Papa' & "Mama" crook; that's Major Mite & Tiny Lawrence as the two `fidgets'. Incidentally, this was Spanky McFarland's film debut with the Gang. It was evident immediately that he had natural charm & enormous talent. Eventually he would be the most famous Rascal of them all.
