Did You Know?


After the closing music ends, the "The End" title card (with a line drawing of MGM's Leo the Lion reclining in the background) remains onscreen for an additional 7 seconds - without any sound - and then fades out (rather than usually fading out as the music ends). See more »


[as the camera moves away from the crazy credit sign: "Here lie the clothes of Spanky, Mickey, Buckwheat and Froggy. Don't dig 'em up or you'll get groggy! We buried 'em well - We buried 'em deep - so let them rest in their smelly sleep!"]

Crazy Credits

As Mighty Lak a Goat (1942) concludes, four members appear to be stark naked behind a wooden sign with 5 lines of two rhymes. The four members are George 'Spanky' McFarland, Billy 'Froggy' Laughlin, Billie 'Buckwheat' Thomas and Robert Blake (known as Mickey Gubitosi, then). The Crazy Credit is the sign and the five line sentence. [Line 1] HERE LIE THE CLOTHES OF SPANKY, [Line 2] MICKEY, BUCKWHEAT and FROGGY. [Line 3] DON'T DIG 'EM UP OR YOU'LL GET GROGGY! [Line 4] WE BURIED 'EM WELL - WE BURiED 'EM DEEP - [Line 5] SO LET THEM REST IN THEIR SMELLY SLEEP! [From left to right: Spanky, Buckwheat, Mickey and Froggy, all four wave farewell, to the camera, as the closing music begins] See more »

What's that smell!
5 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

A really good our gang short! The gang Spanky, Froggy, Buckwheat and Mickey are on there way to school when a car splashes them with mud! So then Froggy has the idea of some stuff that will clean the mud all up! Well the stuff did work to get it off but it left a terrible smell that would make everybody run! The gang then tries to get on the bus to get to school and the bus driver wouldn't let them on cuz of the smell..so then the gang had to walk to school and ended up being dismissed for the day. The gang then decides to go to the movies to see a detective movie. Ava Gardner has a brief cameo is this as the lady who gives the gang the tickets. The gang then gets kicked outta the theater even the actors in the movie were smelling it! So after that they ended up burying there clothes! Overall a great our gang comedy! I give this 4 stars ****!!!!
