Very Entertaining Dozen Minutes
9 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
