Best Little Rascals/ Our Gang short= A Lad an' a Lamp.

http://movies2.nytimes.com/gst/movies/movie.html?v_id=225665

PLOT DESCRIPTION
Fascinated by the story of Aladdin's magic lamp, the Our Gang kids gather together every electric light fixture in the neighborhood, hoping that by rubbing them vigorously, a genie will appear. Thanks to a series of coincidences -- not least of which involves a friendly stage magician -- the kids become convinced that they've succeeded in emulating Aladdin. But their excitement turns to dismay when Mathew "Stymie" Beard believes that he's transformed his kid brother Cotton (Bobby Beard) into a monkey! Despite a marvelous sequence in which Spanky McFarland enjoys a free meal at a lunch counter, courtesy of a trained monkey, it cannot be denied that this film contains a great deal of casually racist humor that seems tasteless when viewed today. For that reason, "A Lad an' a Lamp," originally released on December 17, 1932, has been withdrawn from the "Little Rascals" TV package, though the film is available to home-video collectors. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

Best Little Rascals/ Our Gang short= Birf o' de Natshun

http://movies2.nytimes.com/gst/movies/movie.html?v_id=225665

PLOT DESCRIPTION
Fascinated by the story of The Civil War, the Our Gang kids gather together every aferican american in the neighborhood, hoping that by punishing them vigorously, they will vent thier misguided rasism. Thanks to a series of coincidences -- not least of which involves a friendly Klansman-- the kids become convinced that they've succeeded in exterminated all negroes. But their excitement turns to dismay when Mathew "Stymie" Beard believes that he's lynched his kid brother Cotton (Bobby Beard) on a powerline! Despite a marvelous sequence in which Spanky McFarland enjoys a horse-whipping an old lady, it cannot be denied that this film contains a great deal of casually racist humor that seems tasteless when viewed today. For that reason, "Bir O' De Natshun," originally released on December 22, 1932, has been withdrawn from the "Little Rascals" TV package, though the film is available to home-video collectors. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

This thread is similar to the "TV Shows I'm Surprised Aren't On DVD Yet" thread i'm thinking about starting. More about that later. But for now:

RAT PATROL! I always seemed to run into this show on weekend afternoons following some sporting event or at 3:30-4 AM after showing some movie i waited up to watch. It was a 30 minute show set in WW2 where guys in Jeeps w/machine guns fought Rommel's Nazzy Arayan Rat Bastards in the North African desert! No character development,no real plot other than setting up the action! The Naked Raygun song of the same name accurately sums up the show's premise. Whoa-Oh-Oh-OhOhOh!

Other than that: Banana Splits,Space Giants,Letter People,Lidsville,Thunderbirds,Wayland Flowers and Madam... as you can see i'm a sucker for puppets and giant monsters in rubber costumes TV shows.Just thought i'd mention some other shows in addition to what's already listed (that i like as well).

Good Times,Invaders,Maverick,Manimal,Get A Life,the "Blue Boy" episode of Dragnet ("Who's your travel agent? Where'd you get your tickets?"),Herman's Head... the list is endless.

Addams Family, Outer Limits & Twilight Zone. The Munsters too I guess.
Posted: Apr 3, 2006 9:45 pm
 
Oh,and i remember that Little Rascals Genie short as well! I like any of those LR's where they had to put on a show or were resourceful in creating things for themselves,which i guess was almost all of them (the Donkey-driven taxi cab short comes to mind as i write this).

I'll also add Lost In Space and Voyage to The Bottom Of the Sea in the mix... what a couple of weird ass shows!

The little rascals were in class and the teacher was giving them a vocabulary lesson. The teacher said" Alfalfa, use the word 'love' in a sentence"

Alfalfa replies, "I love Darla".

The teacher said ' good"...now Spanky your word is respect"

Spanky replies ,"I respect the way Alfalfa loves Darla".

The teacher said, "Very good!" Now Buckwheat its your turn, your word is Dictate"

Buckwheat replies, "Hey Darla, how did my dictate last night?"

Vehicle Voltron is pretty fun to play with though but the lion episodes are the best.

I have a VHS tape somewheres with only a couple of performances on it.
Posted: Apr 4, 2006 7:03 pm
 
Town Hall Party was from late 50's/early 60's and shot down in Compton! The only people down there now wearing cowboy hat are Central Americans (and I don't Mid-Westerners). I used to work next to Compton for years and would tool around there on my lunch breaks vistiting Thrift Stores. I scored some amazing shit and would always find my shoe and shirt size. In Carson, which is mostly Samoans, stuff would acutally be too big. I'd find shirts I could fit 2 of myself in and size 13 and 14 shoes!
Posted: Apr 4, 2006 8:21 pm

I wanna see all the women lose their shit over him!

There was someone a bit back selling stuff from Korla's estate on eBay -- really great stuff but I kept on forgetting when the shit ended!! Paintings by Korla of his wife, paintings of Korla by fans, home recorded (and unreleased) reel to reels, etc. There were even some solid gold busts (at least gold plated) but they didn't meet the reserve.
Posted: Apr 4, 2006 9:11 pm

I saw him LIVE twice and both times it was beyond greatness! Once I saw him at a roller rink in Glendale! That's got to be in the my Top Ten greatest live show experiences. I was in my Grandma's back yard and found a 5 disc 78-book of his inside an abandoned, rotting dresser drawer! It's in excellent shape!

I agree 100%. I'm especially a junkie for any episode with Larry Mondello or Whitey Whitney. Later epiodes go into "stink territory" but I'll watch 'em any time they're on. TV Land needs to bring it back. It's only a matter of time.
