This new DVD features two volumes of newly-restored Little Rascals material, with four episodes in each volume. In "Fly My Kite" (1931), the kids have to save beloved Grandma from her scheming son-in-law Dirty Dan, who tries to steal her money. Rich brat Wally looks for a fun time by inviting the gang (and their donkey Barclay) to his mansion but ends up with more than he bargained for in "Honkey Donkey" (1934). "Beginner's Luck" (1935) features poor Spanky, trying to read Shakespeare during a talent show while the gang razzes him with peashooters. It's song time in "Reunion in Rhythm" (1937) as a grammar school musical showcases Darla singing "Baby Face" and Alfalfa doing "I'm Through With Love," just to name a few. On Volume 2, the gang starts a fire department in "Hook & Ladder" (1932) but can't seem to find a fire. The Rascals go camping Blair Witch-style in "The First Round-Up" (1934), with some hijinks with things that go bump in the night. Everyone's favorite teacher, Miss Jones, goes to get married in "Teacher's Beau" (1935), but the kids concoct a plan to get her "unhitched." The classic He-Man Woman-Haters' Club makes its first appearance in "Hearts Are Thumps" (1937) from an adverse reaction to Valentine's Day.

If you want some wonderful shorts of the Gang, Hallmark has made it a pleasure to watch these films. Criterion quality, great subjects, your kids will also enjoy. This is the disk to buy first. And can Grandma warm up before a boxing match. When she runs to get help from her SIL Dirty Dan, don't feel too bad when you note the gas prices at 9 cents a gallon.

Hal Roach had a great idea when he first decided to create the 'Our Gang' comedies. His genius was in letting kids be kids and not small versions of wise-cracking adults.These kids are not polished actors but deliver engaging performances. They still appeal to the young and the young at heart. Even today, kids enjoy the adventures, inventiveness, thrills and laughs the 'Gang' provides. This is a fine collection of 8 remastered and uncut 'Little Rascals' episodes.Film critic Leonard Maltin gives an introduction to each Volume as well as little known facts about certain episodes. Note: Many of these episodes were shot in Los Angeles and Culver City, California. They offer a rare pre-World War II glimpse of the undeveloped L.A. area (as well as vanished landmarks like the Huge concrete number '57' on the Baldwin Hills which were once used to advertise Heinz '57' varieties of food products).

I had trouble finding a legit compilation of the Little Rascals but this one is great. I mostly found bootlegged versions when I searched the internet but this one is by Hallmark and the clarity of the picture and sound is very good. I would highly recommend this. It seems that the only episodes worth viewing are those issued from Hallmark.
