The best part is.......
18 April 2007 | by (Carteret, NJ) – See all my reviews

....the man working the sound room! How come nobody mentioned the man who's hat keeps flying off every time one of the Gang causes a blown circuit. I'm no technical expert, so I'm not sure what problems the Rascals actually cause, but damn it's great stuff! The look on his face and that head of hair! This episode probably gets more laughs out of me than most (and that's saying a lot). The Gang is at their best, and all the great character actors involved work so well together. Hal Roach was a magician who's comedy, no matter how slapstick it was, still attained a gentle touch. This stuff is good clean harmless fun that will always stand the test of time. How often can one say that?
