Newcomer, Darla Hood made her series debut in this 2-reeler, as "Cookie". She would appear in a total of 50 Our Gang shorts over the next 6 years. All that follow, she goes by her real name of Darla. See more »
I never particularly liked variety shows...and this is no exception.
Instead of a typical sort of Our Gang comedy, this one is a musical variety show...which probably explains why I didn't like it very much. Quite simply, seeing very young kids singing and dancing is something I can do without (it was bad enough having to watch my own kids in pageants when they were young!!). Lots of singing (most of it not very good--and you know it's bad when Alfalfa is NOT the worst of these acts) and dancing was occasionally punctuated by a bit of comedy--mostly provided by cute little Porky--who was the best part of this film. Also enjoyable was the drag act near the end. Seeing Spanky, Scotty and the rest in gay 90s outfits was something! What, I am not sure...but it was something.
By the way, this film was the debut of series regular, Darla Hood--a girl that was so incredibly cute that you wonder if she was the product of some unholy scientific experiment.
