| Our Gang Scare-Fest Gets Better at the End
This short has a lot of funny moments, but it's too long (the longest of all the "Our Gang" shorts, I've heard), and leans too much on mocking the cowardice and gullibility of Farina, the sole black character in the film. The rest of the gang is reduced to a bunch of bullies. The more they pick on Farina, the slower and more annoying the film becomes.

The short picks up when Farina is tricked into entering a graveyard and the gang's pranks backfire, scaring them as much as Farina. Some of the gags are elaborate and even spooky, and the pace becomes lightning fast. I think if they had edited down the first half this would have been a classic.
