Makin' Lemonade With The Little Rascals
15 April 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

Nasty Leonard & his equally repulsive dad, new owners of a neighborhood fruit stand, see to it that the lemonade cart belonging to little Scotty Beckett & his grandpa is thrown off THE LUCKY CORNER where it's stood for years. Moving into a less-frequented alley, business looks bleak. It's a good thing Spanky & The Gang are on hand to drum up some more customers.

A funny little film, with spunky Spanky, Buckwheat `on ice' and Alfalfa crooning `Little Brown Jug' the highlights. Leonard Kibrick was the quintessential tough redheaded kid in many films of the 1930's, often without credit. That's Gus Leonard playing Grandpa.
