5.0 von 5 Sternen Well Written-Better than most other TV show Books, 4. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Little Rascals: The Life and Times of Our Gang (Taschenbuch)
I got this book in 1979 on hard cover. I still have it and read it though I have read every page three times in the last 20 years. I was 10 when I got the book. I was getting interested in The Little Rascals airing Summers on WKBS TV Channel 48 In Philly(Went Dark in 83-Became WGTW in 92). By mid 79 at age 10 I became attached to the Rascals. When I found this book I bought it for 8 dollars on hard cover. The book gave me an educated outlook on the series and now knew the order of the episodes from Small Talk to Hide and Shriek then those 52 MGM "Ones" as I called them which I disliked even before this book gave me the idea to. I dreaded the days that 48 would show one Rascal episode then run one of the MGM Our Gangs. I also discovered that there were almost a dozen Little Rascals episodes I never saw(Railroading, Lazy Days, Moan And Groan, Tough winter, Little Daddy, Big Ears, A Lad An A Lamp, Kid From Borneo) as well as episodes like When the Wind Blows, Pups Is Pups, Anniversery Trouble, Spanky, For Pete's Sake, Lucky Corner to name a few where footage was missing. This angered me. By 1984 I had Home Video and got all available episodes in a year's time still missing a dozen that were not released. I was in heaven seeing all this footage and all the missing episodes except for Big Ears(Still Unavailable at the time). I also got the rest on bootleg in 1989. Then in 1994 and 95 Cabin Fever releases all 81 episodes unedited but also with original titles and in CD quality sound. I then rebuy all the episodes on these tapes with reviews and all. This book is a must have for any Little Rascals or classic TV fan(Though the Rascals were not originally a TV show). I have the original. But have read the Updated 1992 version which fills the few gaps the original didn't. If you have the original I still encourage you to buy the second edition but not until you buy the Videos first. I did not buy the updated edition but that is for budgetary reasons more so. Great Book. Buy It along with the Cabin Fever Little Rascals Tapes.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "THE authority on the longest short-subject comedy series!", 15. August 1996
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Little Rascals: The Life and Times of Our Gang (Taschenbuch)
RE-MARK-ABLE!

Bann and Maltin uncover the history of Hal Roach Studios' brainchildren, known today as "The Little Rascals", originally known as Our Gang. This book is the definitive authority. The authors have gone to great detail in covering the history of this film series and it's endless cast of kiddie actors, including Spanky, Buckwheat, Alfalfa, Stymie, Wheezer and others including Jackie Cooper, probably the most successful of the series' child actors, who grew up to be one of the most influential directors in Hollywood during the Advent of TV and Baby boomer era. Scores of interview material (including interviews with Hal Roach who just died in 1992, and Stan Laurel) are included in this hefty paperback volume, worth more than the list price!

Most of the book is dedicated to the 220 or so short subject films (and one major motion picture) of Roach's Rascals, from Our Gang's inception with their first silent two-reeler in 1922 with Pathe (I believe) to the final MGM sound one-reeler film during the War (WW2) in 1944. Uh-huhhhh! That's a lot of celluloid over a 22 year period! The film documentaries are divided into 3 sections: The Silent Years (Pathe and Hal Roach Studios), The Sound Years at Hal Roach Studios (The "Talkies", Our Gang's Golden Era), and the MGM years (when The Rascals really declined).

You can find out all you need to know about the Little Rascals in this book by Richard Bann and Leonard Maltin (of Entertainment Tonight). This book is a must for comedy buffs who love the black and white era of film (especially Laurel & Hardy fans!). Also, for video collectors, the Little Rascals' best sound (and some silent) films are available from Cabin Fever Entertainment in 21 volumes.

So in the words of Spanky:

"Step up kids, if you want to know

'Bout the swell stuff in the show

There's singin', dancin' and hotcha, too

It's only $14.40

It won't break you!"

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must have! The "Bible" for Our Gang enthusiasts, 23. Januar 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Little Rascals: The Life and Times of Our Gang (Taschenbuch)
This book is a must have for anyone who is a fan of Our Gang/The Little Rascals. It's a complete "Bible" of information, pictures, and fun! Find out who's still alive, what happened to the kids when they left the Gang, what went on behind the scenes, and other production tidbits
This book answers just about any question you might have regarding the series.

My only wish is that it came in CD-ROM format...maybe next revision.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Little Rascals: The Life and Times of Our Gang (Taschenbuch)
I love Jackie Condon (from the silents~1922-1929), but there was not enough info on him :*(...mostly the material was on Jackie Coogan,Alfalfa,Spanky,and Darla. But there was something in there for everyone in the group. I LOVE it though...just got it for Christmas...yesterday :) I HIGHLY recommend it!! There is so much on the gang that you probably never would have guessed happened!

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Little Rascals: The Life and Times of Our Gang (Taschenbuch)
This book is great to get all of the information on the episodes. It was great to look at the photos too - what classics! A bonus is the write-ups about the stars ("where are they now")
