Dancing Romeo is a nice showcase for Froggy in the Our Gang series
2 February 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This M-G-M comedy short, Dancing Romeo, is the two hundred twentieth entry in the "Our Gang" series and the one hundred thirty-second talkie. Froggy has a crush on Marilyn (Valerie Lee) who's too busy taking classical dancing lessons with Gerald (Bobby Browning) to spend time with him. After seeing her and her partner dancing at the party, Froggy can't get his mind off of them and resolves to dance himself. Compared to Mickey Daniels & Mary Kornman, Jackie Cooper & Miss Crabtree, and Alfalfa & Darla, Froggy & Marilyn aren't a great couple on the series but they're quite intriguing to watch nonetheless. So I liked the way the thing ended and I liked this short enough to forgive the usual less-than-polished acting of the kids. Cyril Endfield did much better in his second directorial effort in the OG series than in his first. So on that note, Dancing Romeo is recommended. Oh, and I always think of the "Sleeping Beauty Waltz" by Tchaikovsky-which was danced by Marilyn and Gerald-as "Once Upon a Dream" from Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty and when "Hungarian Rhapsody" by Franz Liszt was playing during Froggy's "dance", I immediately thought of Bugs Bunny's cartoon Rhapsody Rabbit when he was trying to perform that on the piano when a mouse keeps interrupting him...
