Oliver Hardy has amusing cameo in Our Gang's Baby Brother
21 August 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, Baby Brother, is the sixty-first in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series. Joe Cobb is a wealthy child who longs for a baby brother. His nursemaid takes him to the other side where he meets some kids his age (the rest of Our Gang) where Joe offers three dollars for a baby. Farina finds a fellow African-American neighbor woman who lets him mind her infant which he then paints white and sells to Joe. The rest of the gang has set an assembly-line system that washes, dries, rocks, and feeds male and female babies. As Joe puts his through, the paint comes off but since it calls him papa he is still overjoyed. Then the real mother arrives making Joe put the child in his mother's lap at home. To get him over losing his "kid", his parents announce in advance that he's getting a pony for Christmas! This short is pretty amusing from beginning to end although one may get slightly uncomfortable at how the infants are treated in the name of "fun". Historically, this was the first appearance of Bobby "Wheezer" Hutchins, so rebellious that he already does his first Bronx cheer here! Also, look for Oliver Hardy just before his fateful teaming with Stan Laurel. As Joe embarrasses his girlfriend Anita Garvin by asking if she can find him a baby brother, Ollie does his famous camera look, then smiles bashfully before falling down in hilarious fashion! I saw this in a Cabin Fever VHS with three talkie Little Rascals issued around 1994. Well worth seeking out if you're an Our Gang and/or a Laurel and Hardy fan!
