Reg'lar Fellers was Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer's first post-Our Gang film
23 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

Just watched this on YouTube. It was based on a comic strip by Gene Byrnes that I knew about but have never read though I knew it was about a kid gang having fun like the Our Gang kids in the movies. Speaking of them, among the members here is a former member of OG in Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer. In fact, he sings badly here as he did there to hilarious effect! Also in this gang are Billy Lee who was in the OG short, Mike Fright, as a tap dancer as well as Henry "Spike" Lee-here credited as Jerry Wilson-who was an extra in various of those shorts and the guy who plays Puddin'Head (Malcolm Hutton) here who was previously in Peck's Bad Boy at the Circus which also featured Spanky McFarland who was in between stints in OG at the time. There are some funny gags though the majority of the film concerns a missing man and the wife, baby, and mother he left behind. No great shakes but Reg'lar Fellas is pretty enjoyable for what it was.
