Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Spanky McFarland returned to the Our Gang comedy series in the one-reel entry Aladdin's Lantern. This time around, the gang members are putting on a musical show about Aladdin and his lamp. While Spanky, Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer, and Darla Hood endeavor to stick to the script (such as it is), their efforts are undermined by smaller kids Billy "Buckwheat" Thomas and Eugene "Porky" Lee. The film ends on a combustible note as Alfalfa tries to render a song while his pants catch fire! Aladdin's Lantern was originally released on September 17, 1938.
