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>

Shame
6 September 1999 | by (Baton Rouge) – See all my reviews

This is one of the Rascals shorts that really puts me to shame. What's worse than parents trying to teach kids lessons, than kids trying to teach kids a lesson. Buckwheat is a pathological liar, that's why the gang doesn't believe him when he says he saw a monkey spook at the old haunted house. The gang tells him to leave because he lies so darn much. They decide to dress Froggy as a monkey spook and give Bucky a scare. When they tell to Froggy to hide in the house until Bucky shows up Froggy encounters the actual monkey and is hung up on a coat hook. The gang thinks it's still Froggy, but they get hung up too. A circus manager shows up and explains that thats a monkey that escaped from the circus, and a reward for somewhat finding they get free tickets to the circus. This puts me to shame. This has got to be one of the worse Our Gang shorts. It's odd why Spanky and Buckwheat stayed for so long. Spank stayed for 11 years and Buckwheat stayed til the series ended. Whatever puts money in their pocket the probably thought.
