Storyline

The Our Gang kids are preparing for a fishing trip they are taking tomorrow morning, specifically by bus to the East River. They figure that they better arrive early, which means taking the first bus of the day, or else the fish will not be biting. With the help of a policeman, the kids are able to meet that first bus. But their fishing trip may not happen unless they, the bus operators and the bus passengers can all get together to get the bus going. Written by Huggo

Going' Fishin' is a funny study in frustration in the Our Gang series
21 January 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This M-G-M comedy short, Going' Fishin', is the one hundred ninety-second entry in the "Our Gang" series and the one hundred fourth talkie. The gang stay overnight at the window of a sporting goods store in order to catch the early bus to go fishing. The kind of bus they're going to ride is a double decker one where they can go to the top to see the view from above. But first they have to pay their fare and only Mickey has the money but he's confused which shoe it's in. I'll stop there and just say the frustration on the part of the conductor is believable but so are the kids' ignorance of how they're the cause of it which makes it all funny the way it's presented here. Paul Hurst-who's one of the few players receiving credit in these shorts-does quite well doing his slow-burn grimace throughout. In summary, Going' Fishin' is one of the better M-G-M Our Gang shorts.
