Our Gang, also known as The Little Rascals or Hal Roach's Rascals, was a series of American comedy short films about a group of poor neighborhood children and the adventures they had together.

 

A total of 220 shorts and one feature film, General Spanky, were produced, featuring over forty-one child actors. In the mid-1950s, the 80 shorts with sound (they started out as silent shorts) were syndicated for television under the title The Little Rascals.

 

The series is noted for showing children behaving in a relatively natural way. Our Gang also notably put boys, girls, whites and blacks together in a group as equals, something that "broke new ground," according to film historian Leonard Maltin. Such a thing had never been done before in cinema but was commonplace after the success of Our Gang.
