One of the most bizarre Our Gang comedies ever made
15 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a really strange, but thought provoking film. Here, beloved Mary literally lets Harry Spear kick her behind, spend her money on him, and forces her to push his kiddie car, all so that she could get the occasional joy of watching Harry "Wiggle His Ears." Armchair Freudians and double-entendre fans will quickly get the "joke" here. He quickly dumps Mary for pintsized blonde bombshell Jean Darling. What happens? You'll see.

This is all quite strange and unsettling on a number of counts. It's difficult to accept as comedy a scene where a little girl like Mary is being kicked in the buttocks and abused in other ways by Harry. Farina gives Mary advice on how to "Win your man and be a flapper." The sight of Mary in tight clothes and heavy makeup is REALLY creepy, not to mention the very idea of kids being used to satirize adult sexual relationships. However, the film works as a conversation piece and would especially play well if shown to a college classroom to discuss gender issues. That aside, it leaves a pretty foul aftertaste and fortunately, the Gang producers stuck to the kid's stuff in the future.
