I agree, it's all harmless fun.
15 January 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is not one of the deeper Our Gang comedies--and that's not necessarily that a bad thing. So, despite having a rather simple plot, it's full of the sorts of shenanigans you'd expect from such a film.

Tommy (Tommy Bond--who later played the villainous 'Butch' in the Our Gang comedies) is going to the local radio station to participate in a talent contest. He tells the gang and they decide to participate as well--even though they don't seem to have any discernible talent. At the studio, the kids pretty much make a mess of things and end up destroying the show AND the sound man's ears! None of it is especially plot-driven--just lots of gags thrown in rather randomly. Enjoyable and undemanding--while it's not one of the best films (I think many of the early ones are better), it's worth seeing.
