Glove Taps marked the debut of the bully Butch and his henchman, The Woim, in the Our Gang series
15 December 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, Glove Taps, is the one hundred fifty-second entry in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series and the sixty-fourth talkie. New kids Butch and his buddy, The Woim, see students at the school leave after the bell rings and challenges the roughest kid to a fight after declaring himself the new Big Shot. Reluctantly, Alfalfa finds himself picked so Spanky trains him. Porky and Buckwheat assist but the way they shake their heads, they don't think things will go well for them...This marked the return of Tommy Bond to the gang after a couple of years or so of absence following Washee Ironee. He's quite a rough presence to the gang in contrast to weak-willed Alf. But what follows is some of the funniest stuff in these latter-day one reelers. Sidney Kibrick had previously been in many of these shorts but I don't think I've recognized him in them even those with his brother Leonard. And Darwood Kaye appears for the first time here, as an audience member in glasses, but he's not Waldo yet. Like I said, Glove Taps was quite a funny short so on that note, I definitely recommend it. P.S. I noticed some of the Marvin Hatley score as that from the Laurel & Hardy film, Way Out West.
