Bedtime Worries was quite a fine showcase for the leading Our Gang star, Spanky
7 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, Bedtime Worries, is the one hundred twenty-fourth in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series and the thirty-sixth talkie. As his father gets a promotion as a shipping clerk (which results in a funny exchange between Spanky and both his parents as to what that is), he insists his son sleeps alone for the first time in his life. But Spank keeps calling them out-either for water or for something that's bothering him. I'll stop there and just say this was quite a good showcase for the scene-stealing toddler. While the other kids in the gang are also around, they don't get as much screen time. As his parents, Emerson Treacy and Gay Seabrook are quite the team in their dialogue exchanges with the wife quite the ditzy character in the Gracie Allen mode. They would appear in the follow-up short, Wild Poses, as well. So on that note, I highly recommend Bedtime Worries.
