The Little Rascals - Online-Exclusive 'MOD' Release of 5-DVD Our Gang Collection


Available starting tomorrow as part of Warner's 'Archive Collection' lineup

Posted by David Lambert

    Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, Porky, Darla, Mickey, Waldo and Froggy have long been names to conjure with in the annals of screen comedy. They're fun-loving members of Our Gang, one of the most beloved bunches of movie kids ever. And with this fabulous 5-Disc Collection of 52 Theatrical Shorts, you've struck the mother lode of laughter from Hollywood's Golden Age.

    Popularized on television for generations following their run in theatres, these rib-tickling short subjects showcased an ensemble of groundbreakingly diverse youngsters, many of whom were skilled at song as well as slapstick. If you belong to the legions of this mischievous gang's fans, this compilation (covering the years 1938-1944) of mirthful memories and lasting laughter belongs in your home collection.
This past spring, we reported on Warner Home Video's effort to begin offering "MOD" (manufacture on demand) DVD titles, bringing a new outlet for vintage films from their library. At the time there were no TV-related announcements in the "WarnerArchive.com" library, but now one has appeared on our radar thanks to a heads-up e-mail this weekend from one of our readers, William Bennett "Ben" Warfield.

The WB Archive's Our Gang Collection will be available exclusively via WBShop.com as part of that program, beginning tomorrow, September 1. The 5-disc set will cost $34.95 for 52 installments running 572 minutes, and includes the following "Our Gang" theatrical shorts, which later appears as part of the Little Rascals television series:
