The New Pupil (1940)

** (out of 4)

At one point in this Our Gang short, Alfalfa says that girls get the funniest ideas. It's too bad that the writers of this film didn't come up with some funnier ideas. A new girl arrives at school and draws the attention of Alfalfa and Spanky. Soon the two of them are willing to do whatever it takes to get her attention even if it means dressing up as girls and playing with dolls. What the boys don't know is that the girl and Darla are playing a trick on them. THE NEW PUPIL is considered by many to be one of the worst films of the series and I really can't argue with that. What kept me from really hating this film is the fact that it's just so bizarre that it kept me entertained from start to finish. I'm really not sure what the writers were trying to do here but the entire story just really adds up to nothing. I'm not certain what the point of embarrassing the boys was and I'm really not sure why the new girl would go along with something like this. Yes, the two boys kept pestering her but the screenplay needed more. The scene with Alfalfa and Spanky all dressed up really didn't get a single laugh but the site was weird enough to help make it somewhat of a cult item.
