| Good Bad Boys was-despite the lesson being taught-a pretty funny Our Gang comedy
This M-G-M comedy short, Good Bad Boys, is the one hundred ninety-third entry in the "Our Gang" series and the one hundred fifth talkie. Spanky accepts Mrs. Wilson's offer to take some junk from her house for 25 cents. When he arrives at the clubhouse, Alfalfa is thinking of a life of crime because his father punished him for stealing an apple from a store even though Slicker was the real culprit who palmed it on Alf before the proprietor caught him. Spanky decides to let the gang think they're stealing Mrs. Wilson's things instead of simply refusing to play along. Then a real crime involving some adults happens at the same time...Okay, yes, this was another of those teach-a-lesson entries in the series but I managed to get a few laughs out of some of the climatic chase scenes that were undercranked and the mistaken identity that resulted from the two events converging. So on that note, I say Good Bad Boys is worth a look. P.S. That's Hugh Beaumont-the future Ward Cleaver-as a judge's aide bringing in Spanky and Mrs. Wilson in the courtroom.
