All About Hash was one of the more intolerable of the Our Gang entries
20 January 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This M-G-M comedy short, All About Hash, is the one hundred ninetieth entry in the "Our Gang" series and the one hundred second talkie. The gang have no idea for what to do on the upcoming radio contest when Mickey arrives late and mentions his parents once again arguing over Monday leftovers, or hash, of the previous night's roast beef. So the gang resolves to eat all the roast beef the following weekend with Mickey's parents going to Alfalfa's parents' house the following night which is also the night of the radio contest. Now they know what they'll do there...If you're familiar with my review of the previous OG short Big Ears-in which Wheezer's parents did nothing but bicker-then you know how I hated that one especially the way that was resolved. Since by this point the entries were reduced in length to one reel-10 minutes-the quarreling is kept to a minimum making it a little more tolerable though seeing Mickey Gubitosi-the future Robert Blake-doing even more whining than usual makes him a little obnoxious here especially when his head is superimposed over the radio his parents are listening to. So on that note, All About Hash is only recommended to those Our Gang completists out there like me. P.S. Not only do Louis Jean Heydt and Peggy Shannon reprise their roles from Dad for a Day but William Newell and Barbara Bedford also do so as Alf's parents which they've portrayed since M-G-M took over production of the series. Oh, and Ms. Shannon would eventually die a year later of acute alcoholism. She was thirty-two. Also, this was Janet Burston's first appearance in the series, singing a brief not-very-good version of "Tippy Tippy Tin".
