Trivia

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 of 1938 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).

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'.
