Invites you to RSVP for our Next No-Host Luncheon
Friday September 28, 2018
Smoky Mountain Pizzeria Grill
Will present a fun program on
We’ll See and Hear…
Three (3) 20-minute vintage
Little Rascals shows as seen in the
1950s and 1960s on Boise TV
“Mike Fright” from 1934
When open auditions are announced for a “kids” radio variety program,
the station is besieged by aggressively over-coached "professional kids."
Also auditioning is the International Silver String Submarine Band, which as
it turns out, is the gang, equipped with their own home-made instruments!
“The Pinch Singer” from 1936
Station KWZ is looking for a performer to send to a local
amateur radio talent contest, with $50 going to the winner.
Despite Alfalfa's repeated attempts to upstage everyone else,
Darla Hood is chosen to sing "I'm in the Mood for Love."
However, when Darla fails to show up at the radio station,
Alfalfa then has to take Darla's place on the radio program.
The gang races to the pay phones at the nearest drugstore
calling in vote after vote for Alfalfa who wins the $50 prize!
And “Free Wheeling” from 1932
Confined to a neck brace, poor little rich boy Dickie wants to
play with the neighborhood kids, but his overprotective mother
says no. On the sly, however, Dickie sneaks out of his bedroom
in search of adventure in the company of his best pal, Stymie.
Stymie’s also the “radio” in the car, but his kazoo playing is bad!
They all take a ride on a donkey-driven "taxi" piloted by Breezy,
and the boys, along with hitchhikers Spanky and Jacquie Lyn,
then experience enough thrills and excitement to last a lifetime
when the taxi begins rolling down a steep hill without brakes!
Art will show the restored original films on high-quality DVDs!
