Remember Petey the Dog from Our Gang?
The Little Rascals are back!
Do you remember watching the Little Rascals on TV in black and white when you were just a kid, wishing you could have the adventures they did? Maybe your Mom and Dad did too, or your grandparents. Now you can relive those adventures and share them with your own kids.
On March 18 the digital version of The Little Rascals Save the Day was released. Thrill and giggle as they try to save Grandma Larson’s bakery time after time (the Blu-Ray Combo Pack will be available April 1st – no fooling!). Will they succeed at crummy caddying, a terrible taxi service, a disaster of a dog wash, panicky pet walking, or can they possibly win the talent show with Alfalfa’s “singing”?
Everykid Wants to be a Little Rascal!
Even during the Depression, the Little Rascals of Our Gang managed to scrape together enough scraps to make a clubhouse, a treehouse, a soap box derby car and more, and get into more scrapes than you can imagine, thanks to Spanky, their fearless leader.
Originally filmed from 1922 – 1944, 220 episodes entertained generations of American kids who laughed hilariously at Alfalfa’s singing, worshipped the beautiful Darla, were mesmerized by Spanky’s mischievous madcap hare-brained schemes which always went awry, and, of course, wished they too could play with Petey the Dog. Only Stymie could wear a derby hat and get away with it. Did you know the real Jackie Cooper was a Little Rascal? Remember Buckwheat’s suit - and Froggy and Butch and Porky and Uh-huh? And Grandma Larson’s (from Everybody Loves Raymond in this new movie) cupcakes for kids?
