Hope There Are No Women in Dog Heaven
25 October 2018 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Many great silent comics have found committing suicide to be a source of humor, from Max Linder to Harold Lloyd. Add to the roll the name of Pete the Pup. As this film opens, Pete is trying to hang himself, much to the enjoyment of the chickens and cat he has tormented. Another dog rescues him and asks him to tell his story.

Pete is the dog of Joe Cobb, and their life together has been idyllic. Into this Eden entered a woman, played by Annette de Kirby in her only appearance in Our Gang. She steals Joe's heart and, since she doesn't like dogs, make him cast Our Hero aside.

When originally conceived, Our Gang was intended as a series about the kids and their animals. The animals were split off into the Dippy Doo-Dads under the direction of cameraman Len Powers. Only Pete and Alfalfa's mule survived in the Rascals' series and Pete was a great performer, starring in the Buster Brown series at the Stern Brothers. He joined the Rascal in 1927 in THE GLORIOUS FOURTH and added his star power to Our Gang through 1931 and lived a long and (I hope) happy life until 1946.
