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 »

Who was the "adult rascal", that splashed the mud on them?!
13 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

As I typed in the title's Subject/Summary, I strongly wonder who the "adult rascal" was, that drove by them and splashed the mud on Spanky, Froggy, Buckwheat & Mickey, as they were about to go to school. Also, Froggy was practicing Patrick Henry's personal quote, (in the early 1770's decade, before Thursday, July 4th, 1776), and his personal quote, "Give me liberty, or give me death!" I strongly believe it was a crew member, as if he or she was about to go look for a breakfast meal. To me, "Mighty Lak a Goat" would have been much five to ten more popular, if Spanky MacFarland did not act in the next short, that was his final short, at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, "Unexpected Riches" was the very last "Our Gang" short of Spanky.
