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 <>

Another Neat Short!
12 February 2004 | by (Anderson, California, .U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This is another neat short, when Alfalfa is accused of stealing when he didn't do it, his father hears about it and punishes him, later, Alfalfa talks his friend Spanky and the rest of the gang into "burglarizing" Mrs. Wilson's house. However, they get mixed up with a real burglar(played by Al Hill), fortunately, the burglar gets arrested by the police. I wish "Our Gang" was back on television again.
