Storyline

Wally, a little rich boy, is sent home with his chauffeur. But Wally has other ideas, and makes Barclay, the chauffeur, drive him through the poor section of town, where Wally spots the kids from Our Gang using a donkey to propel them on a ride. The gang lets Wally join in the fun, and when a mean old realtor sends them scurrying away, Wally brings all the gang, along with Algebra the donkey, home to his luxurious mansion. The kids have a great time playing, but Algebra gets loose inside the house, much to the dismay of Barclay and the household staff. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Playin' Rough With The Little Rascals
24 May 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

Pampered rich kid Wally is delighted to find Stymie, Spanky & the Gang playing in an alley with their donkey Algebra. Bringing them all back to his home, they engage in rambunctious play. But when Algebra gets into the mansion, everyone is soon involved in playing HONKY-DONKEY to get rid of the recalcitrant creature.

A funny little film, with some good moments watching the Rascals at play. Willie Mae Taylor portrays the part of `Buckwheat'.
