Where's the laughs?
28 December 2004 | by jbacks3See all my reviews

It's inconceivable to imagine an unfunny Hal Roach Our Gang. After Hal sold off the series to his distributor MGM in May, 1938 it soon became harder to find anything to laugh about. Somewhere along the way MGM decided to supplant comedy with moral lessons and/or--- even worse--- education! No one ever went to see an Our Gang installment to do anything other than laugh and, unfortunately, comedy was the one true weakness in the MGM machine. In this dismal entry, Mickey Gubitosi (the now incarcerated Robert Blake) gets hit by a car and the gang goes off on a pedestrian safety crusade called the "1-2-3 Go Safety Society." Worthy cause or not, this is not what Our Gang is all about. It's also painfully apparent that Spanky had outgrown his role in the series at this point. This one's nearly as bad as the MGM shorts could get... unfortunately the series would fumble through 3 more years of garbage that would rival 1-2-3 Go!
