Gay Treacy, Spanky's mother: Sure.
Emerson Treacy, Spanky's father: [to Spanky] Now look, now don't you move.
Emerson Treacy, Spanky's father: [he joins his wife on the sidelines] Hey, wha' you doin'?

It has a cameo with Laurel and Hardy--so for that reason alone it's worth seeing.
2 January 2012 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The film starts off with a guy trying to get folks to sign up to get their children photographed. In a VERY brief scene, you see a clip of Laurel and Hardy from "Brats"--but don't blink--it's very short. Then, you see Spanky's parents from the prior Our Gang film ("Bedtime Worries") taking him to the photographer (Franklin Pangborn) for a portrait. Oddly, the rest of the Gang all come along--and naturally chaos ensues after the boys sabotage the photographer's equipment. Spanky is also on his worst behavior and socks the photographer in the face repeatedly--at which point, the mother laughs says how cute this is (I really wanted to sock her at this point!). Then, whenever the guy tries to get a picture, Spanky covers his head and refuses to cooperate.

Like "Bedtime Worries", this isn't really an Our Gang film. Sure, it has one scene where the kids come and cause some mishaps and another appearance later, but it's all very brief and the film is much more like a Spanky film and the Gang are but guest stars making brief appearances. Still, it has many cute scenes and is a pretty good film overall. Plus, considering the short cameo by Laurel and Hardy, it's well worth seeing--even if Spanky is a total brat.
