After being invited to Darla's widowed father's wedding, Spanky, Froggy, Buckwheat and Mickey, believing Darla's new stepmother to be like the evil stepmothers in fairy tales, do everything they can to break up the ceremony. PS: Froggy's remarks of the 3 Little Pigs, shortly after being invited to Darla's father's second wedding is what the attempted preventions originated from. Written by

Wedding Worries (1941)'s date of release, Saturday, December 13th, 1941, was also Dick Van Dyke's 16th birthday and six days after Japan drew the United States of America into World War II, after its attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on Sunday, December 7th, 1941. See more »
As Wedding Worries (1941) concludes, the background organ music is Christmas song, Jingle Bells. At a certain musical note, (each time it repeats) Spanky, Froggy, Mickey & Buckwheat, are spanked (by his own father) for their numerous attempts of preventing the matrimonial ceremony. See more »
Apart from the unlikely setup of 13-year-old Spanky believing Froggy's story of an actual Big Bad Wolf, this is one of the funnier MGM shorts. Spanky, Mickey et al set to sabotage Darla's father's remarriage, because it will result in a stepmother and we all know what they're like from fairy tales. The final scene involving adults and "laughing gas" makes the short, in addition to the ultimate payoff. We can be glad that MGM forewent the usual preachy moral lesson this time.
As stated, this is Darla's last appearance in the Our Gang series. She'd outgrown the role about five shorts ago (but then again, so had Spanky) and towered over everyone else. Without Alfalfa, Butch or Waldo, no one knew what to do with her anyway, leading to her inexplicable presence in "Robot Wrecks". At least here she sets the plot in motion.
