Storyline

Filled with stories of Aladdin's magic lamp, the gang starts rubbing every lamp in sight in hopes of finding the one with the magic. A series of coincidences leads the gang to think they've found the magic lamp, and a helpful vaudeville magician augments the illusion. After Spanky decides to wish that Stymie's little brother Cotton was a monkey, an escaped chimpanzee shows up and frightens Cotton away. The gang believes the wish has come true and mayhem ensues as they try to keep the police from shooting the runaway simian. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Magic Monkeyshines And The Little Rascals
17 June 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

All it takes is A LAD AN' A LAMP to cause trouble. Convinced he's found Aladdin's Magic Lamp, Spanky tries to turn little Cotton into a monkey. A runaway chimp completes the illusion, but the havoc it causes downtown is no make believe...

A funny little film, with good performances from Spanky & Stymie. Highlight: the chimp behind the diner counter.
