Storyline

A big monkey has escaped from the circus, and Buckwheat sees it enter the neighborhood "haunted house." Buckwheat tries to tell his friends, but they don't believe him because he has been fibbing lately. To teach him a lesson, the gang dress Froggy up in a monkey suit and have him posted inside the "haunted house." They take Buckwheat inside, but the joke backfires when the Our Gang are pursued by the real monkey . . . Written by Thomas McWilliams <tgm@netcom.com>

Scarin' A Liar With The Little Rascals
6 May 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

The Gang is trying to teach Buckwheat to `DON'T LIE.' Well & good, but how is he going to convince them he's just seen a large chimpanzee sitting at the haunted house?

Billy Laughlin as gravelly-voiced Froggy steals the show. Made after MGM got direct control of the Gang, and with the kids themselves noticeably growing up, it bears scant resemblance to the Rascals' classics of yesteryear.
