This is one of three silent Our Gang comedies that were included on the huge Our Gang mega-set consisting of eight DVDs. It's a darn shame more silents aren't included, as Hal Roach Studios made a ton of them--both silent and sound.
The kids decide to put on a circus at the local hotel. Seeing various pets and other domestic animals dressed up like circus animals was very cute--particularly the dachshund dressed as a seal! However, the animals all get loose and terrorize the hotel guests--including a drunk played by Oliver Hardy. None of this is especially deep but it is quite funny, cute and engaging. Well worth seeing. The only negative is the girl who likes sticking people with pins--an odd and unfunny sort of bit. Also, while not listed in credits, it sure looks as if Chubby Chaney (later a regular in the films) appears to be in this one--sporting a huge wig and playing a girl. See the film and see if you agree.
