Barely adequate--the series is treading water.
3 February 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The very nerdy and ridiculously adult Waldo is wooing Darla in his mini-boat in this episode. The gang naturally hate Waldo since he's a bookish rich kid and challenge him to a boat race--him and his fancy boat and them with their piece of trash homemade boat.

There's a lot to dislike in this episode of Our Gang. Like most of their later shorts, this one looks rushed and lacked the comedic touch of the earlier films. A few examples of the shoddy quality of this one includes the use of rather poor rear projection, the flag blowing the wrong direction on the boat (simple details like this should have been caught) and, inexplicably, bad overacting by Darla Hood. While she'd made quite a few shorts before this one, here she really hams it up later in the film. In addition, there just isn't that much comedy in this one.
