Fish Hooky is a 1933 Our Gang short comedy film directed by Robert F. McGowan.[2] It was the 120th (32nd talking episode) Our Gang short that was released.


Wheezer, Dickie, Uh-huh, and Stymie choose to play hooky from school again to go fishing with Joe and Farina. Meanwhile, Miss Kornman is taking her students to the beach and amusement pier free of charge. Spanky and Cotton deliver sick notes forged for Dickie, Stymie, and Wheezer by Joe and Farina to Miss Kornman, stating why they were absent. Truant officer Mickey Daniels decides to teach the boys a lesson.

The truant officer then lectures the boys about what they can expect if sent to reform school (at Christmas, he claims that "everybody gets a brand new sledgehammer!"), and frightens them so much they insist on being taken to the beach to apologize to Miss Kornman. En route, Stymie spots the truant officer badge and the boys flee. The officer purposely makes the chase long, but eventually catches all the boys. They beg Miss Kornman to stop Mr. Daniels from locking the boys in a reform school. She does after the boys promise to never play hooky again.

Afterwards, Mr. Daniels asks Miss Kornman for a kiss, but she refuses. As he keeps on begging her, Spanky (who was taking a nap) shouts: "For the love of Pete! Kiss him so I can go to sleep!"


The Gang

Additional cast


Fish Hooky marks cameo appearances of four former Our Gangers, now teenagers. Allen Hoskins (Farina, aged 12) and Joe Cobb (aged 15) play the "older kids" who the Gang follows to the fishing hole. Mary Kornman (teacher) and Mickey Daniels (truant officer) portray adult roles, despite them both being the teenagers as well (Mickey 18, Mary 16).

This also marked the final appearance of recurring player Donald Haines.

The amusement park scenes were filmed at the Santa Monica Pier and show the rides and attractions ca. 1933.[3][4]
