Boat Racin' With The Little Rascals
17 May 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

When Darla's affections turn from Alfalfa to Waldo & his miniature yacht, it's time to fight back. Challenging the verbose twerp to a boat race, Alfalfa skippers a floating contraption of his own, crewed by Buckwheat & Porky. Are these THREE MEN IN A TUB really up to the contest?

Not a lot of laughs in this little film. Waldo's persiflage & Darla's histrionics become rather annoying. Highlight: the three-duck power engine.
