Yoo-Hoo was not very funny but is worth a look for some of the cast
20 November 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

I stumbled onto this short film on YouTube. The info under the screen explained this was a Universal 2-reel short featuring many players and crew from Hal Roach Studios. It seems Warren Doane-who was an executive at H R-was let go after new general manager Henry Ginsberg-in order to save money-thought some talent was expendable. So Doane set up shop at the lot run by Carl Laemmle and brought some of the H R talent for some work there. Like director James Horne, cameraman Len Powers, and writer George Stevens. Also on board were players like Anita Garvin, Billy Gilbert, and Bobby "Wheezer" Hutchins, a member of Our Gang who missed some of the series' shorts during this period. The short's star is James Gleason. Now this is a comedy about Gleason getting orphan Bobby-who is called "Rooster" here-to live with him even though he's not his real parent. I didn't think much of this short was funny except for a couple of scenes involving faking small pox on a couple of characters. Still, it was interesting to watch so on that note, Yoo-Hoo is worth a look, if nothing else.
