Storyline

Stymie and his friends plot to play hooky from school in order to go fishing, unaware that their teacher, Miss Kornman, is closing the school for the day in order to take the kids to the amusement park. Mickey, the truant officer, gets wind of the hooky plans and, just for fun, chases the would-be hooky players all around the park. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Quotes

Mickey Daniels: Have you ever heard anything about a reform school?
Dickie: Yeah, I've heard about it. What's it like?
Mickey Daniels: Oh, it's terrible. A great big heavy iron bar around each ankle, and all stoop-shouldered from carrying a great big heavy sledgehammer.
Stymie: What's the sledgehammer for?
Mickey Daniels: They use it on the rockpile. They break great big rocks into little bitsy ones.
Dickie: Then why don't they run away?
Mickey Daniels: Oh, they can't. Too many guards. And there's a big river that runs all the way around it. And it's just chuck full of crocodiles.

Sweet and Tender
12 November 1999 | by (México) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite Our Gang´s comedies. The children from the past,Mickey and Mary became now the truant officer and the teacher, and they have to show the new children a lesson. Not to hooky. Dickie, Stymie, Wheezer and the others chose a bad day to play fish hooky. The rest of the class has gone to the beach for a pic-nic. And every thing is free !!
