Fear of a stepmother with no lines
23 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
