The Little Rascals

The Little Rascals is a 1994 American family comedy film produced by Amblin Entertainment, and released by Universal Pictures on August 5, 1994. The film is an adaptation of Hal Roach's Our Gang, a series of short films of the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s (many of which were broadcast on television as The Little Rascals) which centered on the adventures of a group of neighborhood children. The film, with a screenplay by Paul Guay, Stephen Mazur, and Penelope Spheeris – who also directed – presents several of the Our Gang characters in an updated setting, and features re-interpretations of several of the original shorts. It is the first collaboration by Guay and Mazur, whose subsequent comedies were Liar Liar and Heartbreakers.

Darla: Alfalfa, that`s a part of you I`ve never seen before!
  • This film liberally borrows gags, situations, set-ups, costumes, and plots from many of the shorts that made up the original Our Gang (Little Rascals) movie series. Some examples: - Hook and Ladder (1932): The gang as firefighters - Hi`-Neighbor! (1934): Building the go-cart (a fire engine in the original), knocking over the pedestrian on the sidewalk. - Anniversary Trouble (1935): The "hi/high-sign" (the only short in which it is prominently featured) - Hearts Are Thumps (1937): The He-Man Woman Haters Club, the gang spiking Alfalfa & Darla`s lunch, Alfalfa`s "bubble song." - Rushin` Ballet (1937): Alfalfa and Spanky in drag at a ballet recital. The costumes are exact duplicates of the originals. - Mail and Female (1937): (once again) The He-Man Woman Haters Club, the love note, "1st Messenger" Buckwheat, and "2nd Messenger" Porky. - Auto Antics (1939): The go-cart race - Three Smart Guys (1943): Buckwheat and Porky catching one another`s fishing hook and trying to (unknowingly) reel each other in.
