Did You Know?


"Santa Claus" was said twelve times, altogether, by "Spanky", "Spanky's Dad", the burglar and "Stymie", as "Stymie" took "Pete the Pup" there, to hide and keep "The Gang's" dog, hidden from the dog catcher. See more »


Spanky: Hey, Santa Claus, where ya goin'?
The burglar: I guess I'm going to jail, son.
Spanky: I'll come up and see you some time.
[the short's last line is a reminder of Mae West's most popular quote of "Come up and see me, sometime!"]
Spanky: [the closing quote said by 'Spanky', 'I'll come up and see you, sometime.' was one of his most popular and repeated quotes]

Bedtime Worries was quite a fine showcase for the leading Our Gang star, Spanky
7 November 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, Bedtime Worries, is the one hundred twenty-fourth in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series and the thirty-sixth talkie. As his father gets a promotion as a shipping clerk (which results in a funny exchange between Spanky and both his parents as to what that is), he insists his son sleeps alone for the first time in his life. But Spank keeps calling them out-either for water or for something that's bothering him. I'll stop there and just say this was quite a good showcase for the scene-stealing toddler. While the other kids in the gang are also around, they don't get as much screen time. As his parents, Emerson Treacy and Gay Seabrook are quite the team in their dialogue exchanges with the wife quite the ditzy character in the Gracie Allen mode. They would appear in the follow-up short, Wild Poses, as well. So on that note, I highly recommend Bedtime Worries.
