| Start of a Series
This the first film of the Boy Friend's shorts, a Hal Roach comedy series featuring two of the silent players from the Our Gang series. Mary Kornman and Mickey Daniels made a fine transition to films as adults; Mary was the beauty of the series and Mickey was the goofy oaf, sort of a predecessor of Screech from Saved By the Bell.

Doctor's Orders opens with the two girls from some of the Our Gang talkies. They serves as the opening credits for the film.

In this short, the boys of the group fake a car accident to get the attention of Mary and Gertie, the beautiful girls in the neighborhood. Kennedy the cop plays the uncle of the girls who is wise to the antics of the high school boys. He makes it his personal goal to prove that the boys are only faking with some humorous results. This film is filled with cliché, tried but true jokes. It is brief, but it almost runs too long for comfort.
