Too Hot for Lemonade!, 16 May 2014
Author: (sylviastel@aol.com) from United States

Have you had a lemonade stand? I didn't. Well, lemonade stands have been a children's business ventures during the hot summer days. Waldo has a lemonade stand but its not making any money even for a penny. Spanky and the others help their friend out. They set up a restaurant or café style place. Again, the kids acting like adults in their own world. I grew up watching the Our Gang comedies in syndication. When they came out, they were shown on the big screen before a film presentation. The Our Gang comedies were and still fun to watch. I loved Spanky, Alfalfa, Darla, Buckwheat and the gang. The our Gang films and shorts displayed friendship among kids regardless of their background. The Great Depression was a dark time for their viewers. These short films probably were a welcome relief for viewers.
