They’re all here! Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, Darla, Stymie, Porky, Petey the dog and all of the Little Rascals star in this hilarious heartwarming classic directed by Penelope Spheeris (Wayne’s World). Their new adventures begin at an emergency meeting of the “He-Man Womun Haters Club.” Alfalfa has fallen in love with Darla, threatening the very existence of their “boys only” club. Further trouble ensues when their clubhouse is destroyed and their prized go-cart “The Blur” is stolen by the neighborhood bullies. How can they win the big race and its prize trophy? Through mischief and mayhem, tricks and ingenuity, the rascals will learn the value of true friendship...and even an appreciation of girls!

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Little Rascals is a 1994 remake of the '30s classic serial. This version espouses some of the same prejudices as the original, relying on some "girls are gross" and some anti-gay humor. The good news here is that the cast is integrated and it's less racist than the original. But there are things that would scare younger children, including thunder and a large Doberman that jumps on Alfalfa, knocking him over. The clubhouse catches fire and the kids put it out by themselves. Alfalfa drinks dish soap and bubbles come out when he sings -- parents may want to warn kids that this prank won't work as advertised. There's quite a bit of double entendre: Alfalfa's trademark stands quickly straight while accompanied by a "boy-yoy-yoing" spring sound effect often associated with male arousal, Froggy tells his friends how he scared the girl across the street: "I whipped out my lizard" (it's a real lizard). One boy tells another, "I'll show you my pickle for a nickel." There's some potty humor involving Petey the dog urinating, whoopie cushions, and bedwetting as well. Language includes "bite me" and "losers suck."
