Catchin' A Burglar With The Little Rascals
13 June 2000 | by Ron OliverSee all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short.

Little Spanky has BEDTIME WORRIES. He has to sleep alone for the first time in his life and suddenly his bedroom is filled with spooky sights & sounds - to the great annoyance of his sleepy father. Then a real burglar gets into the house...

A very funny little film, with Spanky at the top of his form. Highlight: the `What's a shipping clerk?' sequence. Emerson Treacy & Gay Seabrook play Spanky's very peculiar parents.
