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

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

Darla's dad is celebrating his 32nd birthday & wants nothing more than a quiet evening at home with his family, enjoying his mock turtle soup, roast chicken & cake. Serenity is shattered, however, by the arrival of Alfalfa, Percy & Porky. To his infinite disgust, all Mr. Hood can do is FEED 'EM AND WEEP...

This little film has a few good moments, mostly dealing with the Rascals. Johnny Arthur, as Papa (a champion whiner), actually turned 55 the year this was filmed. Wilma Cox is levelheaded Mama. Alfalfa warbles `Many Happy Returns Of The Day'.
