The Little Rascals' Christmas Special is a nice animated tribute to Our Gang
While I think I saw the end of this when it was first broadcast in 1979, I just watched this thing in its entirety just now on YouTube. The gang (Spanky, Alfalfa, Darla, Porky, Stymie, and Pete) are trying to get Spanky and Porky's mom a new coat while also waiting for a toy train. That's all I'll say about that. This was quite a funny and touching animated version of Our Gang. Speaking of them, two of its former members have voices here. Matthew "Stymie" Beard is a butcher and Darla Hood is Spanky and Porky's mom. I also recognized Frank Nelson-best known for his work on "The Jack Benny Program" TV and radio show-as a store salesman. So on that note, if you ever stumble unto The Little Rascals' Christmas Special, I highly recommend it. P.S. This was Darla's last work as she'd pass away on June 13, 1979 before this aired. Stymie would do the same on January 8, 1981.
