Storyline

While playing baseball, Mickey runs into the street to catch a fly ball and is struck by a car. When the gang visit him in the hospital they are appalled to find the ward populated by many other children injured in automobile accidents. The Our Gang resolve to do something about the problem, and thus the "1-2-3-Go Safety Society" is born. Written by Thomas McWilliams <tgm@netcom.com>

1-2-3 Stop for crying out loud.
21 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are maybe two "gags" in this short. And to spare you from having to watch it, the "best" one is when Froggy drinks a sedative meant for the laid-up Mickey.

But the important thing is that "the Our Gang" has created a safety society where horrid little children say "1 2 3 Go" before crossing the street. Soon the stuffy, unlikable adults are doing it too. At the end, there is even a "Nationwide Broadcast To Honor Our Gang Originators Of The "1-2-3 Go" Safety Society." I'm sure all of America tuned into to listen to THAT.

It's really sad to see Spanky, now far too old for this, speechifying and reciting dialogue that no one outside of MGM-land would ever say. It makes me want to run into the street WITHOUT counting to avoid it.
