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.

Spanky the Star!
20 April 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A somewhat atypical OUR GANG comedy. The focus is not on the interaction of the gang, but concerns itself with Franklin Pangborn's tribulations in taking a portrait photo of Spanky. Spanky gets to sock Pangborn frequently and hilariously. Look for a quick cameo by Laurel and Hardy.
