5.0 out of 5 stars Our Gang returns! January 21, 2004
Format:DVD
I loved "The Little Rascals" when I was growing up. I'm glad to see they have a nice mix of episodes with my favorite characters. Spanky, Alfalfa, Jackie, Buckwheat, Marianne, and Pete (the dog!) are all here!
If you are unfamiliar with the Little Rascals, it was a series of short comedies filmed in the 1920's and 1930's called "Our Gang". The films were about poor kids and their very funny escapades. (Note: there is racial stereotyping that was common at the time of filming, not that that is any excuse!) These were intended to be stand-alone films. In some films, the gang had parents. In others, they live in an orphanage. There were plenty of other inconsistencies like this from episode to episode. Hal Roach sold the original series to MGM, bought it back, and renamed it, "Hal Roach's Little Rascals". More episodes were filmed into the early 1940's. No episodes were ever produced for TV, but it started playing on TV in 1955 under the name, "The Little Rascals". Jackie Cooper played "Jackie". (Robert Blake played "Mickey", but not in any of these episodes.)
Here is an episode guide, with a tiny description:
Teacher's Pet: Jackie brags to a nice woman about the tricks they plan to play on the new teacher. Guess who their new teacher is?
School's Out: Jackie is worried that the new teacher, Miss Crabtree will get married and leave. So when the gang thinks she has a boyfriend, they try to discourage his interest.

Readin' And Writin': Brisbane tries to get kicked out of school after his mother reminds him that he can be president if he does well.
Spooky Hooky: Spanky and Alfalfa want to skip school and go to the circus, so they send Buckwheat and Porky to put a fake doctor's note on the teacher's desk.

Finally Hallmark has decided to issue another Little Rascals DVD! They promise us unedited copies like the old Cabin Fever release. Unfortunately, if you are replacing your old Cabin Fever VHS tapes you will find this release minus Leonard Maltin and in a different order:

Shorts included on this set:

Former Cabin Fever volume 6
FREE WEELIN' (1932) with Spanky & Stymie
MIKE FRIGHT (1934) with Spanky & Stymie
WASHEE IRONEE (1934) with Spanky, Stymie & Buckwheat
FISHY TALES (1937) with Spanky, Alfalfa, Darla & Buckwheat

Former Cabin Fever volume 8
SHIVER MY TIMBERS (1931) with Stymie
DIVOT DIGGERS (1936) with Spanky, Alfalfa, Darla & Buckwheat
BORED OF EDUCATION (1936) with Spanky, Alfalfa, Darla & Buckwheat
CHOO CHOO (1932) with Spanky (one of his first) & Stymie

Half of former Cabin Fever volume 9
WHEN THE WIND BLOWS (1930) with Jackie Cooper
FRAMING YOUTH (1937) with Spanky, Alfalfa, Darla & Buckwheat

And yes , you will find SPANKY, ALFALFA, DARLA, STYMIE and BUCKWHEAT in many of these. All of the shorts are five star comedies!

5.0 out of 5 stars Has lots of the good stuff! November 27, 2005
Format:DVD
This DVD has a REALLY good selection of Gang/ Rascals comedies, among the best of the bunch!

"Free Wheeling" (1932) Much has been said about the supposed racism of the Gang/Rascals, but this is possibly the most ANTI-racist of all gang films. Dickie Moore's snooty mother overprotects her impaired son and refuses to let him play with Stymie, who she referrs to as "that colored boy" and "that street urchin," but guess who saves the day? Strong stuff for 1932 and good stuff for today.

Mike Fright (1934) is a hoot about the gang's "International Silver String Submarine Band" running amuck at a radio station. LOVE the gag where Tommy Bond sucks a lemon ("they're good for your freckles") while Leonard tries to play the trumpet.

As for "Shiver My Timbers," (1931), Leonard Maltin has not spoken well of this film in his Our Gang book, but I LOVE it! This is where a salty old sailor scares the gang with wild pirate stories. Anyone who has ever had the fun of telling children scary stories will have a soft spot for this pix.

I could go on and on, but just GET IT and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Bang For Your Buck December 30, 2008
Format:DVD
This package is a compilation of two separate "best-of" the Little Rascals DVDs, sold together at a deep discount.

As the title makes clear (and to reiterate my comments from each independent disc), these DVDs are unique in that they provide a color Little Rascals experience. As I understand it, favorite and famous Rascals shorts were cherry-picked to be beneficiaries of this color process, and were then compiled in these collector's sets.

I see the benefits of this process as being primarily twofold: one, it's a new way to re-experience beloved and familiar material. Two, it's a great way to introduce the classics to the younger, color-biased generation. Plus, frankly, the price (as of this writing) can't be beat.

This second release by Hallmark marks a departure from their first one. The previous release was a re-release of Cabin Fever's volume 1 & 2, but this release (called volume 3 & 4 by Amazon but not on the jacket or DVD) does not re-issue Cabin Fever's volumes 3 & 4 exactly.
One disappointment: Leonard Maltin's introductions have been removed!

Here is the comparison:

3 of 4 titles from Cabin Fever's Volume 3
TEACHERS PET (1930) with Jackie Cooper, Stymie & Wheezer
SCHOOL'S OUT (1930) with Jackie Cooper, Stymie & Wheezer
SPOOKY HOOKY (1936) with Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat & Porky

3 of 4 titles from Cabin Fever's Volume 4
READIN' AND WRITIN' (1932) with Stymie & Wheezer
SPRUCIN' UP (1935) with Spanky & Alfalfa
KID FROM BORNEO (1933) with Spanky, Stymie & Wheezer - watch out, not politically correct: "Yum yum, eat'em up" .

1 title from Cabin Fever's Volume 5
DOGS IS DOGS (1931) with Stymie & Wheezer

1 title from Cabin Fever's Volume 9
THE POOCH (1932) with Stymie & Wheezer

1 title from Cabin Fever's Volume 10
FOR PETE'S SAKE (1934) with Spanky & Stymie

1 SILENT comedy new to DVD
DOG HEAVEN (1927) with Wheezer

SPANKY appears in most comedies from 1932 on up. ALFALFA appears only in two, Spooky Hooky & Sprucin' Up. Special treat: watch for a young JACKIE COOPER! These are five star comedies!
