Even though the story seemed familiar from a later Our Gang entry, I liked Circus Fever plenty
25 September 2014 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, Circus Fever, is the thirty-fifth in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series. On the day of the only performance of the circus, Farina and Gene are sick in bed and can't attend. Mickey, brother Jackie, and Joe are not and have to attend school but when they find out Gene and Farina are stuck in bed for six weeks, they resolve to pretend to be sick in order to attend the festivities. If the story seems familiar, you might have seen some of the same plot in the talkie remake, Spooky Hooky, with Spanky, Alfalfa, and the rest which was made several years later. I'll just say that I found this funny most of the time so on that note, I recommend Circus Fever. P.S. One title card says: "Mary-Believes in long engagements-She promised to marry Mickey in 1944" That year is significant since that's the time the Our Gang series ended.
