Getting Schooled: Our Gang in Spooky Hooky (1936)

Here's a primer on how not to feign illness to avoid school.

In Gordon Douglas' 1936 Our Gang short, "Spooky Hooky", Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, & Porky decide to pretend to fall ill all at once and skip school so they can go to the circus, unaware that their teacher is planning a field trip-------to the circus!

If only those boys had a clue among them, they wouldn't have tried a fool's errand.

Rating: B.
