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

[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
