one of the few films Froggy is good in
18 September 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Froggy has always been sort of a puzzle to me. I never could figure the guy out. I mean, once you got past his frog voice (which became all the more grating towards the end of the MGM series), there really wasn't much else recommendable about him (except maybe those cute philosophical quotes from his Aunt Minnie).

Then comes "Dancing Romeo," a film in which Froggy gets to show his stuff as a love-sick kid who has his heart set on a girl who's devoted to dancing. So what does he do? He learns to dance, which he does during the last half of the film. And I must say, the combination of the Hungarian Rhapsody and his wire-manipulated leaps and bounds is quite effective.

Froggy is by no means my favorite Our Gang character, but he seems to hold his own well in this particular film.
