Cute MGM short
21 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Alfalfa and Butch, in order to win Darla's heart, decide to participate in a "Boy's Week Mayor for a Day" race. Butch has a gigantic marshmallow roast, and Alfalfa tries to do skywriting with a homemade balloon rig.

The second of MGM's shorts, it's just as fun and charming as a Hal Roach short. There's not much in the way of belly laughs, but some of the Roach shorts were also that way. It carries itself on a group of kids who still seem believable (with the exception of a pair of twins which MGM ill-advisedly added to the cast). Tommy Bond has some funny scenes as Butch, and is somehow extra funny being bashful in front of Darla, in contrast to his usual tough-guy persona.

The punchline is also funny and somehow telling about society. Definitely worthwhile and a fun way to spend ten minutes.
