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.

Some amusing spot gags are provided in "Our Gang"s Olympic Games
6 February 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, Olympic Games, is the sixty-third in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series. This entry is basically a series of spot gags about the various members of the gang competing in Olympic Game-like activities: Farina doing shot put, Jay R. or "Spec" trying the broad jump, Jackie on hurdles, etc. Nearly all of them end in disaster. All this is tied to a running gag of Weezer and his dog Minnie (actually Pete the Pup) constantly sticking their tongue out with the "Bronx cheer" noise distracting the gang to the point of their beating anyone they think is doing it before finding out at the end...Many very funny moments concerning the various games played by members of the gang that meanders a bit toward the middle before the satisfying finish. H.M. "Beanie" Walker's inter-titles also provide some wit like this one on Farina: "(His) muscles bulged out like bird seed." Anthony Mack's direction is perhaps uneven here. Still, Olympic Games was another enjoyable "Our Gang" short.
