Cradle Robbers was another amusing Our Gang short
24 September 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, Cradle Robbers, is the twenty-eighth in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series. The gang are being left in charge of keeping on eye on their infant and toddler ones except for Joe who doesn't have any younger siblings and wants to go fishing. Mary arrives and tells the gang about a baby contest. The rest of the gang rush to the event but find out the only one still in progress is the one for "fattest baby". Joe reluctantly poses as that one but is soon found out by a cop who gives chase. There's some amusing gags here and a nice pace. The beginning gag concerning fishing poles and carriages will eventually be repeated in the talkie short Forgotten Babies. So on that note, I say give Cradle Robbers a watch. P.S. This was Ernie "Sunshine Sammy" Morrison's final Our Gang appearance.
