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.

Very delightful entertainment
31 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
