Storyline

The story begins with Spanky, who is the president of the "He-Man Woman Haters Club" with many school-aged boys from around the neighborhood as members. His best friend, Alfalfa, has been chosen as the driver for the club's prize-winning go-kart, called "The Blur", in the annual Soap Box Derby style race. However, when the announcement is made, Alfalfa is nowhere to be found. The boys catch Alfalfa in the company of Darla -- "a girl!" Alfalfa isn't like his friends because he's in love with Darla, and unfortunately threatens the very existence of their "boys only" club. The club's members try their hardest to break the two apart, eventually causing their beloved clubhouse to burn down. Darla is mistakenly led to believe Alfalfa feels ashamed of her, so she turns her attentions to Waldo, the new rich kid whose father is an oil tycoon. Further trouble ensures when their prized go-cart "The Blur" is stolen by local neighborhood bullies Butch and Woim. How can they win the big race and ...

Trivia

This film liberally borrows gags, situations, set-ups, costumes, and plots from many of the shorts that made up the original Our Gang (Little Rascals) movie series. Some examples: - Hook and Ladder (1932): The gang as firefighters - Hi'-Neighbor! (1934): Building the go-cart (a fire engine in the original), knocking over the pedestrian on the sidewalk. - Anniversary Trouble (1935): The "hi/high-sign" (the only short in which it is prominently featured) - Hearts Are Thumps (1937): The He-Man Woman Haters Club, the gang spiking Alfalfa and Darla's lunch, Alfalfa's "bubble song." - Rushin' Ballet (1937): Alfalfa and Spanky in drag at a ballet recital. The costumes are exact duplicates of the originals. - Mail and Female (1937): (once again) The He-Man Woman Haters Club, the love note, "1st Messenger" Buckwheat, and "2nd Messenger" Porky. - Auto Antics (1939): The go-cart race - Three Smart Guys (1943): Buckwheat and Porky catching one another's fishing hook and trying to (unknowingly) reel each other in.

Excellent!
20 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

I can not believe some of the peoples comments about this movie being stupid. What did you expect from a kids movie, to come out of it feeling inspired? No, it's just a happy-go-lucky kids movie which i can proudly say i have watched over and over again to this day! And one user commented 'How do the kids expect to marry women in the future, with a Woman Haters club' ? Oh my god, get over yourself! Although i haven't seen the original to this, i can praise this version as a feel good film.

The basic plot is about Spanky and Alfalfa, childhood friends, who have a group called the 'He-man Women Haters club' with their other pals Porky, Buckwheat, Froggy and so on. Though Secretly, Alfalfa loves girls and has a girlfriend,Darla, who he one day has lunch with in the Boys club! When the boys find out Alfalfa lied, they ruin his lunch with Darla (Kitty Litter sandwiches and so-called grape juice!). Unfortunately and accidentally, the clubhouse burns on fire, and the boys must enter a go kart race to win money to fund repairs for their clubhouse! An excellent movie whatever other people say! 9/10 and im sticking to it!
