Storyline

The Our Gang members want to raise money for the Red Cross. Of course they decide to put on a musical show. With the help of Froggy's uncle, an old minstrel show man, they hire the Greenpoint Auditorium for their event. The highlight is Walter Wills and the Our Gang doing a tribute to the great minstrel man George Primrose. It is reasonably faithful to the minstrel show art form with Spanky as interlocutor, and Mickey and Froggy as side or end-men. Darla Hood sang a song's line, solo just before Lazy Moon was sang by Walter Wills. Written by Thomas McWilliams <tgm@netcom.com>

Trivia

Walter Wills's role as a minstrel singing Lazy Moon & in black-face, is a reminder of Al Jolson's role in movie history, of 1927's The Jazz Singer (1927), the first theatrical film that was not completely silent & musical. See more »

Great Choreography!!
10 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really like this short!I'm sure glad that Warner Bros Released this short(as well as "A New Pupil","Helping Hands")on DVD.I really love Darla's singing especially 'Auld Lang Syne' as she and the others did in"Reunion In Rhythm".It merged in perfect sync with the latter part of"Lazy Moon".Well choreographed by the same one who did"38 Follies"which was Bud Murray.Unlike the previous comment,it is in the way you see things that reflect the type of person you are.If you see things as "Horrid",then perhaps there is something horrid about you if this is all you notice.It's like the glass is either half empty or half full dependent on your perspective which is reflective of your current true self.
