Episode Summary

EDIT
Our Gang Follies Of 1938
AIRED:
The gang is staging their annual follies show, but "king of the crooners" Alfalfa walks out on stage singing opera. Unwilling to give his fans what they want, he and Porky visit a local opera company, where the impresario jokingly gives Alfalfa a contract effective twenty years later. Alfalfa and Porky arrive back at the barn, where Alfalfa takes a nap. He dreams of becoming an opera star twenty years later, only to be booed on opening night. The impresario still has him under contract, and orders him to sing in the streets. He chances upon Spanky, who's just about to walk into his own nightclub, Club Spanky, and invites Alfalfa in. After watching all of his successful friends put on various performances in the club, Alfalfa decides he'll become a crooner again, only to be interrupted by the impresario. As he begs to be let go, Alfalfa wakes from his dream, and tearing up the contract, returns to the stage to croon again.moreless

      • Henry Brandon's character in this film closely resembles his memorable character of villian Sylis Barnaby in the Laurel & Hardy movie "Babes In Toyland."

      • This episode was shot in the mid-fall of 1937.

      • The series returned to the two-reel format for one last time with this episode. Hereafter, the remaining episode would all be one-reelers.

      • The songs in this episode include "I'm The Barber Of Seville" and "Learn To Croon" (both sung by Alfalfa), "The Love Bug Will Get You If You Don't Watch Out" (sung by Darla with help from Porky and Buckwheat), "That Foolish Feeling" (sung by Georgia Jean LaRue), "There's No Two Ways About It" (sung by Philip MacMahon), "Follow The Leader" (led by "Cab" Buckwheat), and "Loch Lomond" (sung by Annabella Logan). Among the incidental music heard is "Honolulu Baby" and the Leroy Shield piece called "Interlude." This is one of the few Roach talkies in the series that doesn't open with "Good Old Days."
