The Best Little Rascals Short! Ever!
5 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this short you can see how talented Spanky was as a young child. It shows Spanky in the humor role as opposed to the straight man he played later to Alfalfa and the rest. I you have a child, you can relate to the concerns of a young boy sleeping in his own bed for the first time. When he thinks there's a burglar in the house and his "Daddy and Momma" don't believe him, then a burglar shows up, he's cool as a cucumber. As he asks the burglar "are you Santy Clause? A battle ensues between the father and Spankys friends that is anarchy. A movie thats good to watch with children of all ages. Much better than the later Alfalfa centered shorts.
