Storyline

Rich 'Old Man' Morton is a hypochondriac. The doctor suggests to Morton's wife that adopting a child might help cure Mr. Morton of his delusions. Overhearing the conversation, Morton invites the "Our Gang" members.(that were at the front come to the door, offering to work & pay for a broken window pane, they had just occurred), to a lunch, in order to sour his wife on children and adoption. But the unexpected occurs, when Alfalfa's two twin little brothers get into Mister Morton's medications, eating swallowing a majority of them, leading Mr. Morton to call his physician back to his house. Then the doctor tells him they are nothing, just imaginary sugar pills. Written by Thomas McWilliams <tgm@netcom.com>

Great our gang short!
14 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is Carl Alfalfa Switzer's last our gang short... The gang..Spanky, Alfalfa, Froggy, Darla are out playing baseball when they break a window in a house that belongs to a old rich man. The old man is sick and his wife thinks its a good idea to adopt a couple of kids to perk him up anyways so the old man invites the kids in the house and things go haywire as the old man tries to scare the children. So as they are being chased by the old man...alfalfa's twin brothers get a hold of the old man's pills and they end up calling the doctor over and the pills the doctor gave the old man turned out to be imaginary pills...At the end the doctor hears Froggy say something and then goes over to him and asked him if his voice always does that and Froggy says no sir only when i talk :)

Overall a great short i give this 4 stars ****!!!
