Synopsis by Hal Erickson

No longer available for viewing, Heebee Jeebies was the third of Hal Roach's silent Our Gang films to be distributed by MGM. According to the most reliable sources, the story concerned a professional hypnotist (played, apparently, by former Keystone comedy star Bobby Vernon), who cast his spell on the youthful Our Gang members and everyone else in town. The highlight is the scene in which the kids (Joe Cobb, Farina Hoskins, Bobby "Wheezer" Hutchins, Jean Darling, and the rest) begin behaving like barnyard animals at a high-society tea party. Heebee Jeebies was originally released on November 19, 1927.
