Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Drinkin' Medicine With The Little Rascals
5 May 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

After drinking unmixed digestive powders, Alfalfa gets BUBBLING TROUBLES. When his abdomen swells tremendously, Spanky and the Gang are certain he's swallowed some of Butch's `liquid dynamite'. Now if they can only get Alfalfa home without his exploding...

Few real laughs in this otherwise innocuous little film. Made after MGM got direct control of the Gang, and with the kids themselves noticeably growing up, it bears scant resemblance to the Rascals' classics of yesteryear.
