Did You Know?


Bubbling Troubles (1940) was not only the final appearance of (imaginary rival) Tommy Bond, later nicknamed 'Butch'. Tommy Bond's acting career started shortly after George 'Spanky' McFarland. Both started in 1932. Spanky's debut was in Free Eats (1932) and Tommy Bond's debut was in the very next Our Gang short, Spanky (1932). See more »


Alfalfa's younger twin brothers, Tisket and Tasket, appear to be different people acting, the duo, in Alfalfa's final short, Kiddie Kure. They say nothing, in either short but appear to be larger in size and wear cowlick hair or wigs, in Bubbling Troubles. See more »

Crazy Credits

As Alfalfa looks at his vegetable soup, in the bowl, Darla Hood's face, with a smile appears on top of his soup, then Butch face's appears and growls (as if he wants to scare Alfalfa), leading Alfalfa to re-stir his soup bowl. See more »

One of the good MGM's
24 September 2009 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Alfalfa drinks one of Butch's concoctions and tings that he's going to blow up at the slightest touch.

Nicely put together film has a great build up and funny pay off. This is one of the better of the MGM films that I've run across and its also one of the even fewer ones that I would show to anyone. This is one of the few of the series where everything comes together, its the right amount of time to tell the story, it has good gags, reasonable performances and a funny premise.

I really liked this film.
