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>

A Neat Short!
11 February 2004 | by (Anderson, California, .U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This entertaining short will teach kids that telling lies will get them into alot of trouble, when Buckwheat witnesses a monkey in the haunted house and goes to tell the gang, Spanky, Froggy and Mickey do not believe him, so they dress Froggy, like a monkey to teach Buckwheat, a lesson. When the real monkey shows up, Buckwheat is scared and frightened and runs for his life, and at the end of the short, Buckwheat finally learns his lesson. Just then, a lion shows up and Buckwheat tells the gang, no one believes him, then the lion roars and the gang runs for their lives. This movie is a good educational Our Gang Short.
