"Nothing to do -- and the whole neighborhood to do it in"
3 May 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

William Gillespie and Charlotte Mineau have been living on the $50 a week his uncle has been sending them for their daughter and baby son. When they find out he's coming for a visit, they offer the bellboy money to find them a daughter and son. He comes back with Mickey Daniels as the daughter and Joe Cobb as the infant. Fortunately, there are some spares: not only cigar-puffing Harry Earle, but the rest of the Gang are around to help.... for a very loose definition of help.

It's a very amusing Our Gang, mostly for the sheer confusion of the situation; certainly it's more about the adults than the kids in this one. Like many of them in this period, Joe Cobb is most of the show, but the others get their licks in, as well as Roach regulars Tiny Sandford, Charlie Hall, and Martha Sleeper; she had been hired for the series, but had turned out to be too adult looking, and soon was playing love-interest roles with the likes of Charley Chase.
