    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (6)

      • This film was shot probably around the late summer or early fall of 1936.

      • There is a whole soundtrack full of music in this film, with titles such as "I Love That Watermelon," "In My Old Kentucky Home," "Listen To The Mockingbird, "Swanee River," "Yankee Doodle," "Going Up The River," "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" and "Glory, Glory Hallelujah." Alfalfa sings "Kiss Me Before The Battle, Mother."

      • The gang would form their own army again to aid in the current war in "Helping Hands" (episode no. 202). They also formed their own army in "Dogs Of War!" (episode no. 14) and "Fightin' Fools" (episode no. 196). Other episodes with battles include "Official Officers" (no. 40), "Olympic Games" (no. 63), and "Fair And Muddy" (no. 75).

      • This was the only episode in the series to be set in a time-period that was not contemporaneous with that in which the film was made.

      • This was the one and only feature-length film in the Our Gang series. It ran 71 minutes. Hal Roach had already had success moving Laurel & Hardy into features, and was currently trying out his other short subject stars in features. In the case of Our Gang, their attempt at a feature was unsuccessful, and may well have ended the series, but MGM's Louis B. Mayer wanted to keep them in his lineup, and convinced Roach to continue with shorter, one-reel outings.

      • Besides Spanky and Buckwheat, the kids in this film include Alfalfa, his brother Harold, Jerry Tucker, Porky, Rex Downing, John Collum, Dickie De Nuet, and Flaette Roberts, who made her only appearance in the series.
