Mildly entertaining...and very much like one of Oliver Hardy's earlier films.
9 February 2019 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is a mildly entertaining Our Gang comedy from Hal Roach Studios. It's interesting, but I saw another short recently that was similar in many ways, Oliver Hardy's "One Too Many" from 1916. In both films, an uncle is coming to town...an uncle expecting to see the nephew's baby (or babies) they wrote him about some time ago. In both cases, there was no baby...it was just an attempt to get in good with the RICH uncle! In this case, the kids from the gang are the kids who pretend that the nephew is their daddy.

So is it any good? Yes. While not very original, it was cute and had a few funny moments...such as seeing big Joe Cobb dressed as a baby as well as Farina trying to blend in with all the other babies. Worth your time.
