Episode Summary

EDIT
The kids' Uncle George is in town, having brought with him a wild man from Borneo. Dad doesn't want him near the house, but Mom sends Dickie, Dorothy and Spanky (joined by the gang) to visit him at his sideshow tent. The kids, however, think that the wild man is their Uncle George, and the wild man is basically a grown child who is pacified by candy, which he calls "yum yum eat 'em up." When Stymie pulls out some candy, Bumbo exclaims "Yum yum, eat 'em up!" which sets off a wild chase, as the kids think it's THEM he wants to eat.moreless

  • Uncle George comes to town and the rascals go to meet their uncle for the first time.

    10
    The rascals Uncle George sends a note to his sister saying he is back in town and would love to meet his niece and nephews. Their father swears he'll "punch George in the head" if he shows up at the house. So the rascals go to meet Uncle George. Classic is an understatement. From the classic "I don't want no wild man nibblin on me" to " you don't want to eat me ,Uncle George, mom says I'm spoiled" this episode is what make The Little Rascals timeless. The laughs are fast, the lines are original and the photography is well done.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • As an acknowledging wink to the newly-released (1933) King Kong, this Our Gang makes a couple allusions toward that film, most noticeably the costume and demeanor of Bumbo, who deliberately resembles one of the Skull Island natives,and the screams as the mother leaps out the window, as a wink toward the famous "cut off" screams when Kong knocks the men off the log into the ravine.
