Muggs has to clear himself of murder in one of he better films in the long running East Side Kid series
15 September 2006 | by dbborroughsSee all my reviews

This is one of the best in the long running East Side Kids series.

Here Muggs is tricked into thinking that he killed someone and the only way out of it is to help a criminal with his crooked plans.

What can I say this is a fun romp that sports the regular band of "kids" as well as a young Noah Beery Jr as one of their friends. Of course we know that Muggs didn't do it, and he knows he didn't do it, so the fun is watching to see how he manages to work out who actually did the deed and makes sure they get blamed. The way Muggs finds out is unique and only adds to the enjoyment.

Worth a look for anyone fan or no, who wants a good movie for a moldy oldie movie night.
