Editorial Reviews

DVD #1 On DVD #1 of the Little Rascals Collection is 1923's Dogs of War, in which the Little Rascals meet the one and only Harold Lloyd after a vegetable-throwing war between rival kid gangs leads the rascals to a nearby movie studio. Not only do the Rascals tear up the studios but that loveable gang tears up the laughs.

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").

The Complete Collection of The Little Rascals DVD Set is being distributed by Genius Entertainment with the statements REMASTERED, RESTORED and UNCUT printed on the top and front of this set. It is NOT Remastered. It is NOT Restored. It is NOT Uncut. I cannot believe Genius Entertainment is allowed to falsely advertise this set and charge such a premium price for a dvd set that is in worse shape than my old television copies that I bought over the years.

I must make it clear that I would give 5 stars to The Little Rascals shorts for the shows themselves, but this set is such a huge disappointment, that I have to give it one star, since I cannot give it minus 10 stars, which is what it deserves!

Since I have these Little Rascal shorts on other dvd's, which I am certain people taped from their tv's over the years, I have something to compare them to. As I watched some of the episodes from my old copies and this new set, side by side, the most noticeable thing is the size of the film. This dvd set is blown up enough to cut off a border around the edges, leaving heads and feet cut off! I hate when things are "remastered" like this, cutting off parts of their heads or feet! They did this with Route 66, until the complaints were so numerous about it, that the company remastered Route 66 in it's proper size, where everyone had all their body parts.

The next thing that was very noticeable, were very wide white lines and specs throughout many of the shorts, that make it far too irritating to watch. The only obvious thing that they did was make the contrast stronger, the whites are whiter and the blacks are blacker.

BAD NEWS FOLKS! This not a re-release of the CabinFever transfers. 14 of these are Blackhawk prints, unrestored from 16mm! And two titles have EDITS!

Comparing this release to Cabin fever's 1999 DVD release shows that Cabin Fever's has less artifacting. Those are defenately the superior DVD releases!

The Little Rascals: Vol 1 - 12 Cabin Fever Box Set (6 discs)

The edited titles in this set are BEAR SHOOTERS & WASHEE IRONEE, they were complete in the Cabin Fever DVDs.

The old RHI VHS master got used for WASHEE IRONEE, about 11 minutes into the short, when the gang askes a Chinese boy how to wash clothes, you see him drink some water but the close up of him spitting the water on the clothes & saying "Washee, Washee" is MISSING. The shot right after with the gang looking puzzled is also MISSING. We pick up again with a longer shot of the gang spitting the water on the clothes. The reason for this edit is really a mystery. It does not censor anything that we don't see elsewhere in the short, it must have been an editing error when putting reel 1 & reel 2 together.

Blackhawk never put their name on any 35mm material that they used. They spliced their titles in to their 16mm negative. The sad part is that we will be deprived of the original title artwork.

Here is the list of the 14 titles with the Blackhawk homemovie title cards:

Barnum & Ringling Inc., which does NOT have the original Hal Roach Music & Effects soundtrack! This was one of the first Hal Roach silent films to be produced with a Music & effects soundtrack disc for theaters to run with the film.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Real Disappointment October 31, 2008
Format:DVD
There are many disappoinments in life. This much anticipated DVD set is one of them. There are errors in the enclosed booklet. At least 16 or 17 of the shorts are inferior Blackhawk prints. Two of the silents have no musical score and the third silent is a Blackhawk print. "Washee Ironee" and "Bear Shooters" have material missing. This DVD set is by no means "remastered, restored and uncut". I sent two emails to Genius Products and have not received any reply. With just a little more effort and a knowledgeable "Our Gang" consultant this could have been one of Genius Products' finest and best-selling DVD sets. Shame on them. I am returning this falsely advertised and poorly made product. Cabin Fever did a much better job for RHI in the 1990's. It seems that with the technology that we have today, Genius Products could have easily produced the ultimate "Little Rascals" set instead of this half-hearted effort.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed November 22, 2004
Format:DVD
Like the reviewer before me, I too was very disappointed in this dvd. The clips that have sound are terrible. Most of the clips were from the silent film era, and the players were unfamiliar to me. There was one clip with Alfalfa and Spanky that was fun to watch, but the majority of these clips was awful. No effort was put into digitally re-mastering and transfering the picture and sound. I could have done just as good of a job transfering these clips using just a VCR and a DVR. Don't waste your money on buying this disc. It is a shame, because with a little effort these clips could of had much better quality and it would have been more fun to watch these vintage clips.
