Slow moving but worth the wait
27 January 1999 | by SquonkSee all my reviews

This Our Gang short takes it's time. The film opens with Stymie and Spanky searching for some food and eventually leads into a plot involving the gang trying to save Pete from the dog catcher. A scene involving Stymie trying to peel an artichoke is a classic. Another highlight is a scene in which Spanky plays with Pete the pooch. No doubt this was just a case of letting the camera role while the little boy played with the dog, but it sure is funny. You'll laugh, just be patient with it.
