The Little Rascals (also known as Our Gang) is a series of American comedy short films that characterizes the adventures of a group of neighborhood children. The series is notable for depicting children behaving in a rather natural way, as opposed to imitating adult acting styles. The series was produced in the early 1900s and broke new ground by putting boys, girls, blacks and whites together without differentiation. The series is realistic in that the majority of the children were poor, and poverty was reflective of the time. The gang often encountered conflicts with pompous rich kids and intrusive adults. The Little Rascals contains the hilarious antics of Spanky, Buckwheat, Porky and the rest of Our Gang. The children in Our Gang experience many adventures including getting lost in a haunted house, racing homemade fire engines down perilous hills, and surviving a surprise visit from the famous Wild Man of Borneo.
