The First Round-Up is another amusing Our Gang comedy
14 November 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, The First Round-Up, is the one hundred twenty-eighth in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series and the fortieth talkie. The gang wants to go camping. Wally gets permission from his father who assures the mother that they'll be back in about an hour. Spanky and Scotty are excluded but they arrive first since they hitchhiked. They're also the only ones to bring food which the rest of the gang grabs when they're finally allowed some. Then night comes...This was one of the more subtly humorous of the Our Gang shorts with not much exciting happening till the end. Buckwheat is here for the second time in the series but she's played by Willie Mae Taylor in this one while the eventual one, Billie Thomas, is also making his second appearance. Unlike most of these early talkies, the score is used sparingly here to good effect. Oh, and there's some amusing animation by Roy Seawright. So on that note, The First Round-Up is recommended.
