Back to school with the gang.
19 March 1999 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

This charming Our Gang short follows Breezy as he attempts to get expelled from school. After he does get expelled, he has a change of heart and comes back to Miss Crabtree teary-eyed. This film features some great moments from Wheezer and Stymie, a hilarious poem recital by Sherman, and an ending that made me cry when I was kid. My only complaint is that the ending with the skunk is way too abrupt.
