In When the Wind Blows (1930), released on 5 April 1930, Wheezer's older brother is Jack (Jackie Cooper) and sister is Mary (Mary Ann Jackson). In this story, released just a few weeks later on 17 May 1930 and also released on that same date in Spanish as Los cazadores de osos (1930), Mary is still Wheezer's sister, but his older brother is now Spud (Leon Janney, in his only Gang appearance). Jack is now a neighbor of the Wheezer/Mary family. Another month later, in A Tough Winter (1930), released 14 June 1930, Jack is calling Mary 'Sis' again. See more »
In a wide shot, Farina rushes up with his bow and arrow to help Chubby attack the gorilla, and lets his first arrow go. When the camera cuts to close-up, however, he still has not made his first shot. See more »
Bear Shooters was one of the lesser of the talkie Our Gang shorts
This Hal Roach comedy short, Bear Shooters, is the ninety-eighth in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series and the tenth talkie. In this one, Spud can't go on a hunting trip with Jackie, Farina, and Chubby because he has to watch little brother Wheezer who has coughing jags. He tries to palm him off to sister Mary Ann who only agrees if she's allowed to go on the trip. So off they all go into the woods...I liked the gag of Wheezer accidentally getting Limburger cheese spread on him by Chubby and some of the reaction shots that entailed but otherwise, I thought this was one of the more underwhelming shorts in the series. The climax involving what happens at the end wasn't as hilarious as I had hoped so on that note, Bear Shooters is worth a look at least once.
