Wow


This has to be one of the most racially insensitive films I've ever seen.
I can't believe that anyone could watch this drivel today and find any enjoyment from it.

I agree... Roach chose the wrong script. I grew-up on 'Gang' reruns and although there may have been moments you might find objectionable on the whole there was equality among the gang members in that they were all depression era kids.

Every third person who complains will be shot. Two people have complained already!

Yes. I'm offended that white Spanky was shining shoes. And how dare white Spanky help black Buckwheat regardless of color. And how dare that racist plantation owner actually ALLOW Spanky and Buckwheat to sleep in the same bed when he discovers it!

The fact that Buckwheat is included in their army shows how the kids don't care at all about color. It's actually a more progressive film than others of that era. I don't think anyone here has any idea what you're WOWing about.
