Well worth seeing....just for the props!
2 December 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an odd Our Gang comedy because instead of the kids, this particular one seems to star the people who made the wonderful props for this film. Seriously. This is one you just have to see to believe!

"Hook and Ladder" begins with a posting in the paper by the Fire Department. It seems they want assistance from the community. The kids take this to mean that they need to form their own volunteer fire house--and they do. It's filled with TONS of amazing props but the most interesting, by far, are the crazy fire engines they drive. Eventually, the boys actually happen upon a real fire--and they don't know it, but there is dynamite in the place! What's to happen next?

Overall, one of the better comedies for Our Gang. While the humor is okay, the props are just mega-cool and worth seeing.
