Storyline

After Alfalfa's father wrongly accuses him of bad behavior, Alfalfa decides to go into a life of crime. He gets the rest of the Gang to join him, all except for Spanky. But Spanky sees a chance to keep Alfalfa and the Gang out of trouble and at the same time help him with a chore. He tells the Gang he knows a house that is perfectly set up for robbery. In reality, Spanky has promised the house's owner to help her by carrying off some junk items. But after "robbing" the house, the Gang gets tangled up with a real burglar and ends up in front of a judge. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Good Bad Boys (1940)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Alfalfa gets a spanking over a crime he didn't commit and after reading about Jesse James he decides to start his own gang. Spanky is against it but he decides to "protect" the gang by telling them they're going to rob a house. What's really going on is an old lady has paid Spanky to remove some items from the house. GOOD BAD BOYS is another really bad episode in the long running series. It seems most people and fans hate the MGM Our Gang shorts and it's easy to see why if they stumble across something like this. There's really not a single funny moment here and the entire film just seems rushed to the point where no one even bothered trying to come up with anything new or fresh. The scenes involving Alfalfa giving the speech about turning to a life of crime just isn't funny. Even less funny is when the boys think the cops are after them when in fact they're chasing a real crook. Again, there's really not a single laugh to be had here and it's such a shame that the young cast is so wasted.
