Money Mess With The Little Rascals
16 May 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

Spanky's Pop has ANNIVERSARY TROUBLE. Having first forgotten that important date, he now thinks Spanky has taken the money left for his wife. Spanky has problems of his own: the Gang wants the money back he was to guard as treasurer of their Ancient and Honery Order of Wood Chucks Club, Inc. Only Spanky's quick thinking is going to solve these problems...

Some funny moments in this little film. Highlight: Spanky disguised as Buckwheat. That's marvelous Hattie McDaniel as Mandy the Maid; Johnny Arthur appears as Spanky's Dad.
