Trickin' A Bully With The Little Rascals
17 April 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

Bully Butch has threatened great bodily harm to Alfalfa. Now it's up to Spanky's FISHY TALES to convince Butch that Alfalfa is in bed with a dislocated leg & is unable to fight...

A humorous little film. Highlights include the `William Tell' episode -with Buckwheat as the target - and the cats ‘n' crabs.
