A New School Year Begins With The Little Rascals
19 April 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

It's the first day at school for young members of the Gang - and it will be Brisbane's last day there, if he can do anything about it. Wanting to begin the exciting life of a streetcar conductor, he has lots of tricks up his sleeve to get Miss Crabtree to expel him. There won't be much READIN' AND WRITIN' going on when she finds out what's in store for her...

Some good moments in this film, especially from young Stymie & Wheezer. Little Marmalade, played by Stymie's real kid sister Carlena, is cute. This was to be pretty June Marlowe's exit from the movie business. She had appeared as Miss Crabtree in 5 LITTLE RASCALS films.
