The Gang starts a newspaper! The Greenspoint Flash!
27 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

A very good rascal short.....Spanky, Froggy, Mickey, Buckwheat and the bunch start a newspaper. They are trying to find out who is the leader to the gas house gang society...So the gang sets out to find out who he is...Darryl Hickman plays Frank the leader of the gas house gang. The scene where Froggy is bumped off the bike and into the lake and froggy says the Pen is mightier than the sowrd PHOOY! This is a really good our gang short! I give this short 4 stars ****!!!!
