Originally released on December 3, 1922, Saturday Morning was a typically amusing, if disjointed early entry of the Our Gang comedy series. The titular morning finds Gang members Sorghum and Maple ("Sunshine Sammy" Morrison and Allen "Farina" Hoskins) delivering laundry on behalf of their mother, Mickey Daniels reluctantly practicing his violin, and poor little rich boy Waldemar (Jackie Davis) scheming to escape his retinue of servants to play with the other kids. The story's climax comes when the four youngsters decide to become pirates, building a raft and having a high old time on a nearby riverbank, until the startling arrival of a bear sparks a zany chase.
