Singing On The Radio With The Little Rascals
1 April 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

The Kids are interested in winning the $50 offered by a local radio station for the best amateur children’s performance. Holding an audition amongst themselves - which Alfalfa tries to rig - Darla is selected for her Baby Rose Marie-like rendition of “I’m In The Mood For Love.” When she doesn’t make it in time to the station, however, it gives Alfalfa the perfect opportunity to become celebrated as THE PINCH SINGER...

A funny little film. Spanky runs the audition like a pint-size Major Bowes. Buckwheat’s “whistling” is hilarious - as is Alfalfa’s attempts at vocalizing...
