Our Gang Follies of 1936 was a fine musical comedy Our Gang entry
30 November 2014 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This Hal Roach musical comedy short, Our Gang Follies of 1936, is the one hundred forty-first entry in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series and the fifty-third talkie. While Mike Fright and Beginner's Luck were comedies with music in them, this one is mostly a musical with some comedy involved. Alfalfa is still in his "drugstore cowboy" mode when he once again sings, "She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain" at the beginning but does the first of his crooner songs when he also warbles "The Object of My Affection" to Darla on stage, of which this is Ms. Hood's OG debut though she's addressed as Cookie here. She also has a number, "I'll Never Say 'Never Again' Again", looking very cute in the process and-judging by the looks of the boys in the audience-getting some swoons! So with Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, Porky, and now Darla, this nearly completes the Our Gang most of us are familiar with. We only have to wait for the arrival of Butch, The Woim, and Waldo to really round out the gang...So, yeah, I highly recommend Our Gang Follies of 1936. Oh, and also, this is Scotty Beckett's last regular appearance in the series though he'll return as another character in the later M-G-M-produced only entries.
