Goodbye, Spanky!
8 December 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is George "Spanky" McFarland's last short as a member of Our Gang. He is much too old to be part of the gang and is bursting out of his costume. Why MGM still insisted on using him in the kid comedies at age 13 is a mystery. In this short comedy, the gang dreams about what it would be like to be rich. We see Buckwheat's dream, Mickey's dream, and Froggy's dream. But we do not see Spanky's dream. I guess Spanky was just too old and too fat to dream! Like Matthew "Stymie" Beard's final appearance in "Teacher's Beau" where he does not have one line of dialogue, MGM is saying to Spanky, "You're out, and you do not matter anymore." Sad, isn't it.
