The film was kept back (and almost hidden) in the can for a full year after it was completed. By the time of its Saturday, March 14th, 1936, release, Scotty Beckett had successfully made the transition to feature films and had become a major child star. See more »

There is a lot packed into this short (12 minutes) little Our Gang comedy from 1936.
You get a bunch of slapstick bits and a short musical show featuring some good tap dancing and the singing talents (so to speak) of "Alfalfa." The gang is minding their own business, selling lemonade on a street corner. The bully and his crabby dad are nearby and don't like the fact that Spanky and the gang are taking away a lot of their business.
The rest of the story is the back-and-forth between the two rivals, even after our "good guys" are forced to move.
This is a very fast-moving and entertaining Our Gang short. I think all these kids were in their prime in the last years: the mid '30s.
