Song of the Flea
13 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

As we well know fleas are not solitary creatures and the kids of Hal Roach's Our Gang Comedy Troupe have amassed quite a collection of the bugs. They can't resist being part from them for any length of time so they even bring them to a wedding they're invited to. Do I have to describe what happens when they get loose?

This particular Hal Roach Our Gang short subject is noted for the presence of a pair of his adult comedy stars. Charley Chase is a wedding guest and Oliver Hardy plays a policeman. But these two are distinctly in support of the kids.

Trying to spot them is half the fun of watching this short subject.
