Take A Laugh-Packed Camp Out With The Little Rascals
14 March 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short. When the older Rascals go on a camping trip, inspired by their Western heroes, they refuse to allow the little Kids to come along. Arriving footsore at their destination, Cherry Creek, they find they've brought no food. The big jar of jelly brought by the little Kids -who beat them there by hitchhiking - is the cause of a mad scramble. Strange noises, wild critters, glowing eyes, fleas & a terrific lightning storm ensure all the Rascals won't forget THE FIRST ROUND-UP.

A typically hilarious entry in the Hal Roach series. Spanky & Stymie, as always, are first rate. This was one of the early films in which Buckwheat was played by a little girl, although Billie Thomas does make an appearance as an unnamed toddler.
