Pretty good....but poor old Pete!!
4 January 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Marianne is sick and the gang want to make her feel better. When a jerky kid destroys her doll, they decide to work to earn money to get her another. A lazy boob pays the kids to do his chores--with expected results. Ultimately, they trade the shopkeeper their dog, Pete, for the doll--but the guy turns out to be a real jerk--and Pete gets his revenge--on both him and his bratty kid.

This is a decent Our Gang short. It's fun watching the kids make a mess of the guy's lawn as well as Pete destroying the other guy's store. I just couldn't get over the plot which had the kids trading their dog!! Poor Pete!! Still, it's fun and entertaining--and dull of lots of action.
