Trivia

This is one of the Our Gang shorts in which a solar eclipse is featured as part of the plot. THe local black community have gathered at a lake to conduct baptisms during the mid-day darkness. This may have been inspired by the relatively recent, near-total (90%) eclipse seen in Southern California on September 10, 1923. An eclipse is also featured in the earlier, silent Our Gang short Spook Spoofing (1928). See more »

Goofs

Stunt wire visible when Buckwheat is being pulled at high speed by the fishing pole. See more »

Alternate Versions

For several years when this short was shown on television, many of the local broadcasters would delete the baptism scene due to what they felt was objectionable content; particularly the negative stereotypes of the black church goers. See more »

Going Fishin' With The Little Rascals
29 April 2000 | by Ron OliverSee all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

Spanky has decided to skip Sunday School in favor of trying out his new fishing pole. Followed by Buckwheat & Porky, the LITTLE SINNER heads down to the river, where a few surprises await him...

A very funny little film. Highlights: Buckwheat and the worms; the baptismal service. Clarence Wilson plays the old grouch.
