Storyline

Tired of doing chores, such as baby-sitting, at home, Spanky and Alfalfa, with Porky and Buckwheat tagging along, run away from home, arrive at Jenksville tired and hungry. Besides hunger pangs, they have encountered a pugnacious hound-dog, a swarm of bees, and a frisky pig. A kindhearted storekeeper, who is also the town constable, helps them get back home which, they have concluded,is not a bad place to get back to. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Thwarted Quest for Independence
18 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

This meandering, easygoing film feels like they might have made it up as they went along...and it's funny. Buckwheat and Porky are especially cute, even for them, and Spanky and Alfalfa are their usual skillful selves. The shopkeeper has some pretty harebrained ideas about educating children, but in spite of it he and his wife both manage to be warmly likeable.
