Fightin' Fools (1941)

*** (out of 4)

Our Gang short has the boys swimming at a local pond when another gang of kids take their clothes and tie them in knots. The gang then rivals the other to a challenge in a junk yard. This isn't one of the group's best films but it was still pretty funny especially an early gag with the boys making Tubby dive into the pond only to have him do so and then drain it. Most of the violence comes from the two gangs shooting rotten fruit at one another but this too brings some nice laughs. I really enjoyed Tubby in this film but apparently this was his only appearance in the series. A young Robert Blake is here as well.
