This was one of the shorts that was removed from the Little Rascals television syndication temporarily, package due to its racial content. This and other racial shorts were re-added, back to the list, after being banned, for fifty years, more or less. See more »
During the ice box scene Spanky gives Bumbo the sardines, wieners, bologna, then a whole bowl of raw eggs that Bumbo eats shell and all. Then Spanky gives him Tabasco, vinegar, mustard and a gallon of port wine which Bumbo drinks without stopping. The camera cuts back to the amazed Spanky which shows the bowl of eggs full again.

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Especially the kitchen-refrigerator scene where the "Wildman" eats the eggs & everything else. Spanky is in high form. Hal Roach was a real genius. The ending could have been a little better, though. Would have liked to seen it run a little longer, as well. Although a little short thats what these were designed at. Personally do not see anything "Politically incorrect" about it. Folks are just too sensitive now days. See something wrong where nothing is. Movie is an accurate depiction of those times. Totally innocent & very entertaining fare. Especially interesting is the historical perspective
carnival sideshows & living conditions during that time.
