Going' Golfing With The Little Rascals
9 May 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

Spanky, Alfalfa & the Gang have taken jobs as caddies at the local golf course. But once these little DIVOT DIGGERS are let loose on the fairway, all chaos breaks loose.

A very funny little film, with lots of slapstick. The storyline is very simple - a more convoluted plot would have only gotten in way of the fun. Highlight: the chimpanzee on the mowing machine. That's longtime comedian Billy Bletcher as the diminutive golfer; Russ Powell provides the hilarious voice of the chimp, who almost steals the show from the kids.
