4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic early silent rascals. Dec 19 2009
By Jeremy D Vosburgh - Published on
Verified Purchase
Wonderful, wonderful. This is a collection of some of the best early silent rascals episodes from the 1920s. Don't look for Spanky or Alfalfa because they're not here. Instead we have such wonderful personalities as Mickey Daniels and Mary Kornman. Kornman put to shame any of the other later girls, and Mickey Daniels holds his own against Spanky and Alfalfa, even with his bizarre looks! The cast is rounded out with the usual scrappy characters and loses none of its heartiness when compared to the later years. The theme is the same; little kids act like little grown ups and make all of us look forward to going to work the next day. :)

For quality of production, five stars. I gave four stars because the quality of prints could be better, as could the score. Neither was terrible, though. Definitely worthwhile to pick up.

4.0 out of 5 stars classics to watch again and again... Nov. 23 2008

Though these are silent, the expressions on the kids' faces do most of the storytelling. These are classics up there with Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. Fun to watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eight examples of silent-era Our Gang shorts Dec 25 2008
By Annie Van Auken - Published on
ALPHA VIDEO is a provider of vintage movies, serials and TV programs, many of which aren't available elsewhere. Their prices are fair, but so is transfer quality of some of their offerings. None have undergone restoration, yet the market scarcity of their material and an honest price make these DVDs a worthwhile purchase.

ALPHA's collection, HAL ROACH'S RASCALS consists of 8 silent era shorts that go back almost to the 1922 inception of the kiddie troupe. This groundbreaking comedy series was the first ever to be racially integrated. Many of the children featured in Our Gang became stars and a few, like Jackie Cooper, Mary Kornman and Robert Blake had successful acting careers well into adulthood.

Presented here are the first two generations of Rascals: Joe Cobb, Ernest 'Sunshine Sammy' Morrison, Mary Kornman, Mickey Daniels, Allen 'Farina' Hoskins, Billy Lloyd, Jackie Condon, Johnny Downs, Jay R. 'Spec' Smith, Bobby 'Wheezer' Hutchins, Bobby Dean, Jean Darling and Scooter Lowry. Guest actors are listed for each title, along with IMDB user ratings and year of release.

(6.2) Dogs of War (1923) - Harold Lloyd/William Gillespie/Jack Davis/Ernie Morrison Sr./Fred C. Newmeyer/Lincoln Stedman/Leo White/Dick Gilbert
(6.7) Derby Day (1923) - Sing Joy/William Gillespie/Richard Daniels/Jack Davis/Charles A. Bachman/Wallace Howe/
(6.9) The Sun Down Ltd. (1924) - Andy Samuel/'Sonny Boy' Ward
(7.0) Official Officers (1925) - James Finlayson/Peggy Ahearn/Dick Gilbert/George Rowe/Chet Brandenburg/Charley Young
(7.0) Mary Queen of Tots (1925) - James Finlayson/May Beatty/Richard Daniels/Lyle Tayo/Charles A. Bachman/Charley Young
(6.7) The Fourth Alarm (1926) - George B. French/Charles A. Bachman/Ham Kinsey/Ed Brandenburg/Sam Lufkin/Gene Morgan
(6.1) Olympic Games (1927) - Robert Parrish/Joseph Metzger/Harry Spear/Johnny Aber
(6.7) Spook Spoofing (1928) - Charles A. Bachman/Charles Lloyd


In DOGS OF WAR, the gang runs wild at the Roach studio, where company actors, directors and cameramen in shown in candid scenes.

The kids operate hotdog and lemonade stands near a racetrack in DERBY DAY and later hold their own race, using animals other than horses.

A visit to a rail yard in SUN DOWN LTD. inspires Joe and Mickey to construct their own train.

In OFFICIAL OFFICERS, the gang become "junior" cops.

MARY, QUEEN OF TOTS is a poor little rich girl with a collection of dolls that look like the Our Gang boys. When the real fellas show up one day, Mary thinks her dolls have magically come to life.

In THE FOURTH ALARM, the gang are honorary firemen who help out at a real conflagration.

The title of OLYMPIC GAMES explains the plot: kids emulating world athletic sports.

In SPOOK SPOOFING, the kids frighten Farina after he enters a graveyard. The title is now considered offensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great gift or collector item! Oct. 24 2014

I got this for myself but decided to forward it on to my grandchildren so they can see the original little rascals. These were beloved shows which I watched as a child and even now they still make me laugh. I will say that I lean towards the later episodes with the theatre productions the kids would put on. But I still enjoy all of them from when little Spanky was a baby all the way up to his leadership of the "He-man Woman Haters Club". LOL A true gem for any collector or as a gift from children to adults these classic shows were a favorite of mine growing up and still are today. I would definitely recommend this to others.

I have such fond memories of the Little Rascals. I'm sorry that they don't have anything like this anymore.
