All about not letting Mickey be the center of attention
9 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mickey "whine what's on the cue cards" Gubitosi is having problems with his parents, the same ones he had in "Dad for a Day." However, the marriage has seriously gone south, because Dad whines and complains about Mother serving hash from Sunday's roast beef. This is such an unbelievably minor irritation, you'd think. However, it's enough to get his parents arguing and for Mickey to cry out lines like "I got a headache down here" while pointing at his heart.

There's one mildly funny bit, handled all wrong, when Darla asks Alfalfa to remind her to remind Spanky to remind Alfalfa about dinner. However, the gang later uses a radio contest to dramatize Mickey's situation, whereupon... oh God... Mickey weeps and whines for a full minute while his ghostly image is superimposed onto a radio. For this kid they got rid of Porky?

And... oh boy, this one introduces the unbelievable Janet Burston to the Our Gang shorts. Here we go.
