Our Gang meets a screwy guy in a haunted house.
31 August 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

There isn't a lot of depth to this Our Gang short and it's a very simple plot. Still, it is enjoyable and a rare chance to see a Max Davidson film, as most of them no longer exist.

The kids are told by Officer Kennedy (Edgar Kennedy) to stay out of a house reputed to being haunted. However, when he also tells them about the fun he had as a kid looking for buried treasure, the kids can't resist going to the spooky old place. There, a crazed but apparently harmless guy (Max Davidson) messes with their minds as well as Officer Kennedy.

The film is silly and enjoyable...no more, no less. Plus, I did enjoy seeing Petey eating the invisible turkey! If you want to see it, I found it on YouTube....as neither the Our Gang nor the Max Davidson DVD sets contain this short.
