Rather enjoyable and a chance to see an old favorite.
24 January 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The gang decide to put on the play "Romeo and Juliet". But, the other kids are afraid to pay--so Alfalfa tells them they can pay AFTER they see it if they think it's any good. This is all the incentive the kids need and they pour into the theater. But what if they hate the show?! The show stars Darla, Alfalfa, Spanky and Buckwheat. But, it soon must go on without Darla as Juliet, as Alfalfa's onion breath is a BIG turn-off. So, Alfalfa runs to look for a replacement as Spanky tries to entertain the audience. Will the plan work or will they go bust? All in all, a cute and enjoyable outing. Not brilliant but very enjoyable.

I was excited to see this short because it featured Joe Cobb as the older and mouthy kid. Joe had been a regular in the Our Gang shorts in the silent and early sound era and it was nice to see him again. I also was happy to see that he was a lot thinner and looked healthy--as previously he was morbidly obese and was a bit depressing to look at because I always assumed the studio forced him to eat like a cow so he could be the 'funny fat kid'--a role they used quite a bit with Cobb and Chubby Chaney (whose weight gain was actually caused by a medical condition that eventually took his life!).
