Feed 'em and Weep was another hilarious Our Gang comedy
3 January 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, Feed 'em and Weep, is the one hundred sixty-seventh entry in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series and the seventy-ninth talkie. Darla's dad just wants to have a quiet dinner on his birthday. It seems he's having just that with his daughter, son Junior, and his wife...until Darla's friends of Alfalfa, Porky, and Philip arrive! I'll stop there and just say this was funny from beginning to end and Johnny Arthur was a big reason for that. He reprised his role as Darla's father here which he previously played in Night 'n' Gales. He was also Spanky's dad in Anniversary Trouble. So on that note, I highly recommend Feed 'em and Weep. P.S. This was Johnny Arthur's final appearance in the series but he'd continue to appear in various comedies until 1947. He died on December 31, 1951. For some reason, Buckwheat wasn't in this one so he's replaced here by one Philip Hurlic who had appeared in some shorts in this series before and would appear in one after. He'd also appear with Oliver Hardy in one of his few solo projects in Zenobia the following year. He died on July 7, 2014. And this marked the first gang appearance of one Leonard Landy who plays Percy here.
