In an effort to impress Darla, Alfalfa tells her that he's a famous bear trainer. Little does he know that Darla's father owns a circus - and a bear costume. It's time for everyone to uncover the "bear facts".

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 »
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 »
Alfalfa grows tired of Butch always impressing Darla. When Butch is mixing a special "potion," Alfalfa decides to call his bluff by drinking the potion, which soon has Alfalfa bloating up. Soon he and the gang fear that he's really got dynamite in his stomach. BUBBLING TROUBLES certainly has a lot of trouble but then again so was the entire MGM series by this point. It's easy to see why the series was starting to lose fans because it seems each new episode is just so poorly done that you can't help but wonder why the studio even bothered. You've also got to wonder why some people still enjoyed the shorts because it's clear the writers weren't trying to do anything other than get something on the screen no matter how little there was to it. This short here isn't horrible but at the same time there's just nothing all that interesting going on. The only highlight of the film is when the gang thinks that Alfalfa has exploded and they go to tell his parents that he won't be home for dinner. The rest of the film just contains bad gags (like Alfalfa's brothers) and scenes that just drag on (in Butch's laboratory). Only the die-hard fans of the series should try this one.
