Overview

Based on the long-running comic strip by Gene Byrne, PRC's Reg'lar Fellers was intended as the first of a series of 6-reel comedies built around the talents of juvenile performers Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer and Billy Lee. The plot is set in motion by Hetty Carter (Sarah Padden), a wealthy dowager who hates all kids because of her son's ill-fated marriage. With her boy in jail on a trumped-up charge, Hetty takes out her hostilities on her long-suffering daugther-in-law Caroline (Maren Mayo) and her grandson. Hetty eventually changes her ways thanks to the intervention of "Reg'lar Fellers" Pinhead (Lee), Bump Hudson (Switzer), Jimmy Dugan (Buddy Boles), Aggie Reilly (Janet Dempsey), Skeeter (Jerry Wilson) and Pudd'nhead (Malcolm Hutton), who foils the plans of con artists Ferrell (Don Stowell) and Lubec (Lew Luana) to swindle the old lady. Silent film devotees were gratified to see two old favorites, Marguerite de La Motte and Pat O'Malley, in substantial supporting rolls. Reg'lar Fellers was pleasant enough, but no series was ever forthcoming.
