How can anyone be THAT desperate for a caddy?!
24 January 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of the dumber Our Gang comedies. However, if you just turn off your brain and enjoy, it's not bad. Plus, unlike most of the shorts made with the kids at this time, at least this one does NOT have singing and dancing! The kids are trying to play golf at the local course but naturally, they are making a mess of it. Soon, a really crazy guy comes and offers to pay the kids to be caddies for a group of golfers. Now considering how young the kids are AND one of the new caddies is a chimp, this is why I assume the guy hiring them is certifiably insane. The four golfers seem no better, as they take the age and non-human status of one of them in stride. But, it turns out that the chimp is a regular ham and he creates a huge mess--culminating with some very contrived scenes involving a riding mower and the kids going tobogganing.

This short relies on lots of broad humor--goofy sound effects for the chimp, chicken feathers and the like. This is NOT an intellectual or especially well thought-out short...but, oddly, it did make me smile from time to time. Not great, not terrible.
