Storyline

Most of the "Our Gang" kids are reluctant to attend class on the first day of the school year. Spanky comes up with a plan to get himself and Alfalfa out of class; Alfalfa will feign a toothache (using a balloon in his mouth and a handkerchief around his head), and Spanky will help take him home. However, the new teacher, Miss Lawrence, overhears the boys' plan and orders ice cream for the class in an effort to dissuade Alfalfa and Spanky from skipping school. Written by Joshua Kreitzer

1937 Academy Award Winner
1 November 2002 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This is the only Academy Award winning Our Gang film for Best Short Subject Comedy. This should be prominently noted and displayed. It won, but there are other shows that were much better, like Love Business, Free Wheeling, and Mush and Milk. Enjoy.
