Quotes

Gay Treacy, Spanky's mother: Well, our baby's teeth are a little uneven. Can you do anything about that?
Otto Phocus, the portrait photographer: Why, of course. Don't you worry about that. I can retouch those!
Spanky Treacy: What's "retouch" mean?
Stymie: He just touches 'em, and then touches 'em again. And that means retouch.

HAHA yes excellent!
30 December 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I've never seen any of 'Our Gang' before mainly due to the fact that they have never in my lifetime been shown on British TV. Well, at least not to my knowledge. Also 'The Little Rascals' haven't been shown since i was a little kid. I was very impressed by nearly everything in this little comedy gem. The kids are excellent and Spanky is just so amazing it's genius. The way he acts all goofy and at such a young age is quite an achievement and i'm glad they caught this fantastic child actor on camera while they had the chance. I really do sympathise with the photographer though and Stan Laurel's poke in the eye is a bit dodgy. I'm going to try and find some more 'Our Gang' episodes. Superb! 9/10
