From the same year comes another silent-era Our Gang comedy- Derby Day, in which the Little Rascals, after watching a real horse race, decide to try it for themselves and stage their own race using tricycles and neighborhood pets.
DVD #2 When Our Gang is forced to put on a play at the local school in Stage Fright, mishaps and shenanigans arise when the rascals destroy not only their lines but the stage. From fireworks tied to a cow's tail to feuding lead actors, Stage Fright is one of the funniest Our Gang short films to date.
In 1924, the Little Rascals starred in The Sundown Limited. This little gem was one of Our Gang's more elaborate films, in which Mickey and Joe, after causing all sorts of mischief on a real train, build their own railroad, the way only Our Gang can.
In The Pirates, Our Gang attempts to set sail on the high seas in a pirate ship built from spare parts. But when the ship sinks on its maiden voyage, the gang accidentally find themselves on a real boat headed for a run-in with a Navy battleship in this comedic gem from 1923.
DVD #3 This disc holds some of the funniest Little Rascal shorts ever made. In Mary Queen of Tots, another from the silent-era Our Gang shorts, little, rich girl Mary loses her $4 to the evil governess, and it's up to the gang to help her get it back.
In The Fourth Alarm, the kids from Our Gang save the day by putting out a small kitchen fire, but when they decide to start their own Fire Department the pressure turns out to be more than they can handle when a four-alarm fire threatens the town.
And from 1930 is School's Out. When Ms. Crabtree's brother comes into town, little Jackie Cooper and the gang, thinking he's come to ask their favorite teacher to get married, try to get rid of him at all costs, in what turns out to be a hilarious turn of events.
DVD #4 When the gang decides to become Bear Shooters, they pack their bags and go camping in the one spot that they shouldn't have. But it's not a bear that causes the problems but criminals, when the Little Rascals stumble across their hideout in this comedy gem from 1930.
The gang is putting on a show with Alfalfa billed as "King of the Crooners." But Alfalfa abandons the stage, saying his crooning days are over, and that opera is his true calling. But after taking a nap and dreaming of a successful future in popular music, he changes his mind and joins the rest of the gang for the closing number in Our Gang Follies of 1938.
In Waldo's Last Stand, the gang decides to help Waldo when his lemonade stand gets into financial trouble. The Little Rascal's approach is to put on a show and sell the lemonade to its customers, but when their only patron is Froggy, who is not only broke but not thirsty, the gang has to come up with idea after idea to make some money.
DVD #5 On DVD #5, see the Little Rascals as you've never seen them before- as adults! Twenty-five years after they tore up the silver screen, Our Gang returns to the small screen for a reunion on the 1950's television program 'You Asked For It.' They're all grown up and they're all here: Farina, Little Johnny, Jackie Condon, Fatty, and the rest of the Our Gang players in the Our Gang Reunion.
Kid Stuff: Inside Hollywood's Child Stars is an affectionate and revealing look at some of the greatest child stars of the large and small screen. We'll hear about some of the dizzying highs and tragic lows of being a kid in Hollywood from former child stars such as Ron Howard ("The Andy Griffith Show"), Roddy McDowall ("How Green Was My Valley"), Margaret O'Brien ("Meet Me In St. Louis"), Tommy "Butch" Bond ("Our Gang"), and Johnny Whitaker ("Family Affair").
Nice collection. Not the greatest quality, but what do you want for that price? Would have been nice to have the silent-era episodes from the 20's.Published 1 month ago by Jeff Lebowski
That these children can ack & ad lib do well at their age is amazing. Sorry Bill Cosby, there was no intentional bias towards boys & girls of color in these films. Read morePublished 2 months ago by danny patino
