Funny, despite some lulls.
25 March 1999 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

In this Our Gang short, Spanky, Alfalfa and the Gang just can't stand the fact that their mothers are always trying to get them to wash their ears, and shine their shoes, and comb their hair, etc. That is, until a pretty young girl moves in across the street. She also happens to be daughter to the new truant officer. Several moderately funny moments lead up to the ultimate battle between Spanky and Alfalfa for the young girl's affection. The chin-up contest between them is very funny and is prime example of a great comic team at work. All in all, "Sprucin' Up" has it's share of lulls, but will still leave you smiling.
