not very good
14 November 2009 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

After Froggy hears Red Skelton on the radio and finds out how much money he makes he decides to get into the business. He gathers the gang together and tries to find sponsors by taking different types of shows to different business.

Bland misfire entry in the Our Gang series doesn't really work. Part of the problem is the series cast was down it its weakest bunch, only Buckwheat is any good. Part of the problem is also that the material isn't any good. the faux radio shows the kids perform are neither good on their own terms or bad in the way that a kid would produce something. the result is a series of bits that kind of work if you are willing to look at them in the right way.

Not worth seeing except for the 2 minute audio cameo of Skelton.
