Sneakin' Around With The Little Rascals, 16 June 2000
Author: Ron Oliver ( from Forest Ranch, CA

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

It's SPOOKY HOOKY time for all concerned when Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat & Porky break into the schoolhouse one dark & stormy night to retrieve a faked doctor's note left on teacher's desk...

A few laughs here, but the Short is too short to really develop the chills. Highlight: Buckwheat meets the skeleton.
