Fightin' Fires With The Little Rascals
26 April 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

To help out their city during a shortage of fire fighters, the Rascals have developed their own HOOK AND LADDER company. Converting an old barn into a firehouse, and using a motley assortment of wagons & vehicles, they are vigilant and alert to respond instantly to an alarm - if `Cheef' Dickie can get the pants on little brother Spanky. But when a warehouse full of dynamite begins to burn, and the Gang are the first on the scene, things really begin to heat up...

A very funny little film. The Rascals' fire fighting amenities, in the best tradition of Rube Goldberg, are a delight - as is Spanky & his medicine oil tribulations.
