Movie Series - Our Gang / Little Rascals

Our Gang, also known as The Little Rascals or Hal Roach's Rascals, was a series of American comedy short films about a group of poor neighborhood children and the adventures they had together. Created by comedy producer Hal Roach, Our Gang was produced at the Roach studio starting in 1922 as a silent short subject series. Roach changed distributors from Pathe to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) in 1927, went to sound in 1929 and continued production until 1938, when he sold the series to MGM. MGM in turn continued producing the comedies until 1944. A total of 220 shorts and one feature film, General Spanky, were eventually produced, featuring over forty-one child actors. In the mid-1950s, the 80 Roach-produced shorts with sound were syndicated for television under the title The Little Rascals, as MGM retained the rights to the Our Gang trademark. The series is noted for showing children behaving in a relatively natural way. While child actors are often groomed to imitate adult acting styles, steal scenes, or deliver "cute" performances, Hal Roach and original director Robert F. McGowan worked to film the unaffected, raw nuances apparent in regular kids. Our Gang also notably put boys, girls, whites and blacks together in a group as equals, something that "broke new ground," according to film historian Leonard Maltin. Such a thing had never been done before in cinema but was commonplace after the success of Our Gang.

1 The only version of "Little Rascals" I've seen is the movie that came out in the 90s. For whatever reason, it has the ability to captivate the viewer. I can't tell you how many time I've watched it with my nieces. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on May 9, 2013, 10:38 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 It had some good moments and did help launch some lifelong careers (e.g. Nanette Fabray and Robert Blake[!]). Still, by the time the series came to an end, it definitely had seen better days ( i.e. it wasn't good that Froggy was the ONLY interesting kid left)- and quite a few alums had trainwreck lives thereafter! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 18, 2010, 9:28 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I recall an episode of this where the kids were babysiiters and they glued a small child to the floor of a bird cage by applying a nasty black adhesive to the child's diaper. While funny - the image to this day is disturbing. But Buckwheat and Alfalfa are just classics that can never bone- O-Tay!! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on February 18, 2010, 6:28 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
