Learning The Importance Of School Work With The Little Rascals
5 April 2000 | by Ron OliverSee all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

With the help of his dad, Alfalfa imagines what it would be like in college, when, as a football hero, he is ineligible to play in the big game because he neglected his TIME OUT FOR LESSONS.

This little movie with a moral, made when the Rascals were a bit older, is thoroughly unfunny. Only the jitterbugging scene - with Darla belting out `Swinging The Jinx Away' - has any pep to it.
