George brings back his old street gang
6 August 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

George finds an old photo of his gang called the Hooligans and wants to get them together again.

A hilarious episode and one of the best of season 8. The members of the gang included Chester and Jim, they had nicknames of Pliers for George, Jim was Mustache and Chester was Little Stinky (you had to be there). They convince Dick to be their new leader, calling him Brains, even though he thinks it is ridiculous. Michael and Mr Rusnak also beg to be part of the gang, they are called Clothes Horse and Laces. They end up being challenged to a rumble by a rival gang The Ruffians. Don't miss this one, the rumble is one of the funniest scenes in the series. Michael brings a boom box and plays the music from West Side Story! (Although the music is cut from the DVD, probably for legal reasons).
