I liked Gas House Kids Go West which is the only entry in the three-picture series I found online
25 July 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Well, this Gas House Kids entry (the only ep of the three-picture series I managed to find online) has quite a reunion of the Our Gang cast and crew-besides both Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer and Tommy "Butch" Bond appearing, among the writers are Sam Baerwitz (who also produced) and Robert A. McGowan-the nephew of regular OG director Robert F. McGowan. He not only co-wrote many entries for M-G-M, he also directed many late silent and early talkie entries as Anthony Mack. Anyway, this was quite a funny one starting with a funny basketball game with one of the opponents being a ballet dancer and some hilarious horse riding lessons before the plot involving a stolen car takes hold. Oh, and Alfalfa sings a couple of songs of which the first one has Tommy insulting his singing and the second is too long to be completely funny! Still, this was a mostly enjoyable entry in the series especially when I recognized the lone American Indian as Jay Silverheels a few years before he became Tonto on "The Lone Ranger" TV series.
