Storyline

When they overhear Miss Witherspoon, the school superintendent, say that nothing short of an epidemic will allow the school to be closed for a week, the Our Gang conspire to fake illness. They paint spots on their faces and go to the doctor. Unfortunately they don't realize the doctor they've chosen is a veterinarian. The doctor humors them by inviting Buckwheat into the examining room, but when a monkey emerges they assume the doctor's "monkey serum" has transformed their pal. Written by Thomas McWilliams <tgm@netcom.com>

Foolin' The Doctor With The Little Rascals
28 April 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

Spanky, Buckwheat & Alfalfa are THREE SMART BOYS. If they can get a doctor to agree they've caught an epidemic, the school will have to be closed. So, with bloated bellies & speckled faces they head for the nearest medical man - who happens to be a veterinarian with a wacky sense of humor...

A funny little film - short & to the point. Highlight: Buckwheat & the monkey. That's Rosina Lawrence as the teacher.
