Storyline

While the world watches the Olympic Games in Stockholm, the Rascals gather at the flats for their own games. Whether it's the shot put, the hurdles, the pole vault, or the high jump, not much goes right. There's a deep mud hole that catches several of the kids, and someone out there keeps giving them the razzberry. It's young Wheezer hiding out of sight with his dog Punch, but the kids think it's another boy, so every time they hear the Bronx cheer, they chase the innocent lad and give him a thumping.

Olympic Games (1927)

** (out of 4)

While the real Olympic games are going on the Our Gang kids decide to make their own games and perform them. This includes all the major sports including track, fighting and of course hurdles. Considering this film tries to get comedy from the kids not being able to do the games right I guess it goes without saying that Joe gets the majority of the jokes pulled on him. He takes quite a beating here from not only a fighter but as well as getting pushed around by just about every sport. There's an ongoing joke dealing with the gang, all seven of them, teaming up and beating up on boy. Seven on one just isn't all that funny to me and it really makes the kids come off as jerks. The final gag about the kids running the track was pretty funny as the tape at the finish line is actually a tire tube or something to that nature and when the kids try to run through it it just throws them back. This Our Gang short really doesn't have too many good things going for it but it at least has a fast pace and isn't too bad. No one is going to mistake it for a classic but if you're new to the series then you might want to start with a better entry.
