Matthew 'Stymie' Beard,
First of five Our Gang comedy shorts without top series' marquee star, George 'Spanky' McFarland. Spanky was away acting, in theatrical movie, Peck's Bad Boy with the Circus (1938) was occurring. Spanky was absent from the Our Gang series from April to until July of 1938, during the remaining five shorts for the 1937-1938 theatrical season were filmed and shot, and also during this time, producer Hal Roach sold the series to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. When Spanky returned to the series (by then, it was, at a new location at M-G-M. Aladdin's Lantern (1938), was his first entry of the 1938-1939 season. All 5 "Little Rascals" & "Our Gang" shorts filmed without "Spanky", this era were Feed 'em and Weep (1938), The Awful Tooth (1938), Hide and Shriek (1938) & (the last three with Little Rascals nickname). The Little Ranger (1938) and Party Fever (1938), were the first two after Hal Roach sold the group of children out to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. See more »
