Melodies Old and New was a pretty enjoyable Our Gang musical in the M-G-M-only series
31 January 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This M-G-M musical short, Melodies Old and New, is the two hundred fourth entry in the "Our Gang" series and the one hundred sixteenth talkie. The gang are trying to raise money for football uniforms so once again, Froggy's Uncle Walter Wills decides to put on a show. Compared to Ye Olde Minstrels, the show itself is once again a makeshift operation with one of the numbers involving Spanky, Mickey, Froggy, and Buckwheat doing their own amusing renditions of old popular songs with each-except for Buckwheat-also doing a solo. Janet Burston also does a nice number at the beginning before also introing some professional kid dancers doing what's popular at the time of this short. I really liked this one so that's a recommendation of Melodies Old and New. P.S. Supposedly Dwayne Hickman-later to be known as Dobie Gillis on TV-was one of the kid dancers.
