Spanky's Last Our Gang Short...
14 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

The Gang...Spanky, Froggy, Buckwheat and Mickey are wanting to weigh themselves and divide them in half when they get a fortune that says unexpected riches so then a rich kid decides to throw a map in the gang's clubhouse and the gang thinks that it's there fortune. The gang then takes the offer from the kid to dig the hole and then as the gang are digging they start to dream of what they would do with there fortune. We see Mickey, Froggy and Buckwheat's dream but not Spanky's but that is because it was his last our gang short. Overall a pretty good short i give this short 4 stars ****!!!
