The Little Rascals

Synopsis: The story begins with Spanky, who is the president of the "He-Man Woman Haters Club" with many school-aged boys from around the neighborhood as members. His best friend, Alfalfa, has been chosen as the driver for the club's prize-winning go-kart, called "The Blur", in the annual Soap Box Derby style race. However, when the announcement is made, Alfalfa is nowhere to be found. The boys catch Alfalfa in the company of Darla -- "a girl!" Alfalfa isn't like his friends because he's in love with Darla, and unfortunately threatens the very existence of their "boys only" club. The club's members try their hardest to break the two apart, eventually causing their beloved clubhouse to burn down. Darla is mistakenly led to believe Alfalfa feels ashamed of her, so she turns her attentions to Waldo, the new rich kid whose father is an oil tycoon. Further trouble ensures when their prized go-cart "The Blur" is stolen by local neighborhood bullies But

Spanky- Miss Crabtree!

Miss Creabtree- I would expect this from a four-year-old, but not from you! Spanky, tricking

people out of their money is wrong. It's just like cheating on your homework.

Spanky- But I...

Miss Crabtree- What are we to do with all this money? We can't give it back to these people one

by one.

Spanky- Um, Miss Crabtree, I got a suggestion. What we could do is...

Miss Crabtree- Interesting. Intriguing. I love it.

Audience member- whoo! Nice suit, kid!

Waldo- # "L" is for the way you look At me. "O" is for the only one I see. "V" is very, very

Extraordinary. Now, "E" is even more Than anyone that you adore And love Is all that I can give

to you. Love is more than just a Game for two. Two in love can make it #

Darla- # Take my heart but please don't break it #

Waldo- # Love was made for me and you ##

Alfalfa- Dang. Miss Crabtree, do you got room for just one more act?

Miss Crabtree- We could squeeze you in.

Alfalfa- Thanks, Miss Crabtree!

Miss Crabtree- You're welcome.

Spanky- Well, fellas, the president saved your bacon. I convinced Miss Crabtree to use the

money as first prize in the go-cart derby.

Stymie- Just think, in three days, the money's ours.

Froggy- Everything else may have gone wrong...but there's no way we can lose the race.

Butch- Yeah! The Blur belongs to Butch.

Woim- And woim.

Waldo- Well, if it isn't Falafel.

Alfalfa- Alfalfa!

Waldo- Whatever. I hope you didn't miss my duet with Darla.

Alfalfa- You call that a duet?

Waldo- It was stupendous. She wasn't bad either.

Alfalfa- # Oh, my darlin', oh, my darlin' #

Waldo- What on Earth are you doing?

Alfalfa- I'm warmin' up my vocalizer. I'm about to win Darla back through song. # I'm the barber

Of Seville Figaro, Figaro, Figaro #

Waldo- Don't you get it? Darla can't stand you.

Miss Crabtree- Alfalfa, you're on.

Alfalfa- Darla will love me after I sing to her. Darla can't resist my voice. She said so herself.

Miss Crabtree- Come on, dear.

Alfalfa- This is a song about a tragic romance. I once fell in love with a girl...and through

schemes and betrayals by my best friend...she came to think I was nothin' more...than a

He-Man woman-Hater. But I'm a woman-lover!

Spanky- Uhh!

Alfalfa- So let me raise a toast to the girl I love most in the whole world.

Darla- Please don't say my name. Please don't say my name.

Alfalfa- Darla.

Darla- Ohh.

Alfalfa- # If I could make a wish I think I'd pass Can't think of anything I need No cigarettes, no

sleep #

Spanky- I'm gonna put that fool out of his misery!

Alfalfa- # No lights, no sound Nothing to eat, no books to read Sometimes All I need is the air

that I breathe And to love you # And... whoa! #All I need is the air that I breathe Yes, to love you

All I need is the air that I breathe And to love you ##

Darla- Oh, I hate you, Alfalfa.

Alfalfa- Dang!

Spanky- Hee-hee! Hey!

Froggy- Well, hello, Mr. Bubbles!

Spanky- That was the most disgusting display...of she-man woman-loving I've ever seen!

Alfalfa- Don't talk to me, you Benedict Arnold! You...You Judas Priest! This is all your fault!

Spanky- All my fault?

Froggy- You torched the clubhouse.

Spanky- And it's all my fault? Say, you're supposed to be guarding the go-cart, you

Muzak-warbling wimp!

Alfalfa- Relax, you double-crossing mud-muncher! I parked it right over there! It was right here!

Spanky- Well, where is it?

Stymie- Boy, you're messin' up left and right!

Spanky- That's it, you sissified tweety-bird! I wish I had a club to throw you out of!

Kid- Me too!

Alfalfa- Well, you sewage-swigging slimeball...if there still was a club, I'd quit!

Kid- Good!

Alfalfa- Hmph!

Kid- What a wimp.

Kid- Yeah.

Stymie- Go make up with him, Alfalfa. You guys have been friends since you were one.

Alfalfa- He started it!

Stymie- And you should finish it. You're a team, like Bert and Ernie, Superman and Clark Kent,

Milli and Vanilli. At least go talk to him. What could it cost?

Spanky- You mean, besides my dignity and pride?

Stymie- All I know only make a once-in-a-lifetime buddy...once in a lifetime.

Alfalfa- Is Spanky home?

Spanky’s Dad- I'm sorry, Alfalfa. Spanky isn't here.

Alfalfa’s Dad- I'm sorry, Spanky. Alfalfa's not here.

Spanky- Darn!

Alfalfa- Darn!

Spanky- I thought I'd find you here.

Alfalfa- I'm sorry I called you a double-crossing mud-muncher… and a sewage-swigging


Spanky- I'm sorry I called you a sissified tweety-bird...and a Muzak-warbling wimp.

Alfalfa- I'm sorry I called you a barf-encrusted jumbo jerk.

Spanky- You didn't call me a barf-encrusted jumbo jerk.

Alfalfa- Oh. I guess I was just thinking it. I'm sorry about the fire.

Spanky- I'm sorry about messin' up...your picnic lunch with Darla.Maybe I'm sorta responsible

for the fire too, a little.

Alfalfa- You know, Spanky, I like girls. It might even get worse as I get older.

Spanky- I know you like girls, 'Falf. The problem is, rules is rules.

Alfalfa- But is woman-hating the important thing? I mean, couldn't we be a club 'cause we like


Spanky- Hmm. Shoot! without a clubhouse, we don't have a club.

Stymie- Hey! You guys burned down a clubhouse, not a club!

Froggy- A club is buddies...who stick together, no matter what!

Uh-huh- Uh-huh!

Alfalfa- I just wish we could still enter the go-cart derby. But it's impossible.

Spanky- Who says it's impossible? Every one of us, working together...Pal, that's all the

possible we need!

Spanky- We need a hammer... and nails. A motor. We need a battery and a chassis...four axles

and a wheel belt. Somebody get a supercharger. Go get it, guys! - -

Buckwheat- Here, Petey.

Spanky- Screwdriver.

Kid- Screwdriver.

Spanky- Ratchet!

Kid- Ratchet.

Buckwheat- Hey, Uh-Huh, does it stink in there?

Uh-huh- Uh-huh!

Spanky- Monkey wrench! Ta-dum! Do us proud, buddy.

Alfalfa- You betcha!

Announcer- Hey, everybody! Don't forget! Following the go-cart derby, there will be a tiny tot

bunny race at 3:
30. Entrants must be five years and under. See you there!

A.J. Ferguson- Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls...Welcome to the 73rd annual go-cart


Announcer- Hey, guys, get in your cars! We're ready to start! You there, The kid in the blue.

Stop horsin' around. You're gonna break your neck.

Alfalfa- How we gonna beat that?

Spanky- It looks like The Blur with a new paint job!

Butch and Woim- Eccch!

Buckwheat- # We're goin' to the race. We're goin' to win first place And you have an ugly face #

Waldo- Hi, Dad, it's me. You're gonna be so proud of me. I'm gonna win this race.

Waldo’s Dad- Waldo, you're the best son money can buy.

Waldo- Thanks, Dad.

Porky- I don't have an ugly face. You have an ugly face!

Buckwheat- You have an ugly face!

Porky- You have an ugly face!

Buckwheat- Your mother has an ugly face!

A.J. Ferguson- The race course is marked with arrows... and it ends right back here where it

started from.

Miss Crabtree- Oh, great! This is the prize money for the winner.

Race official- Okay.

Miss Crabtree- It's just about $500. Just say it's from an anonymous donor.

Race Official- You got it.

Darla-Waldo, hurry up. We're late!

Waldo- Oh, please. We're making an entrance. Just sit back, relax and leave everything to moi.

Alfalfa- I wonder where A.J. Ferguson is.

Spanky- I don't know, but I can't wait to meet him.

Announcer- Okay, guys, this is it. Fasten your seat belts. Well, well. Mr. Johnston. Nice of you to

join us. The last car is finally is position.

Spanky- Well, if it isn't waldo. All the money in the world is no substitute for hard work and


Waldo- You lead a rich fantasy life.

Spanky- Thank you.

Waldo- - Moron.

Spanky- What are you doin' with that?

Alfalfa- It's Darla's handkerchief. All great knights ride into battle...wearing the colors of their

lady fair.

Spanky- I'm not hearing this. I'm not hearing this.

Buckwheat- Hey, look! My mom's here!

Porky- whoopee.

A.J. Ferguson- The first racer to cross the finish line will receive... this genuine, gold-plated,

cubic zirconium-encrusted trophy! As well as the prize of five hundred dollars!

Audience- Go! Go!

A.J. Ferguson- Gentlemen, start your engines!

Announcer- All right, ready. Steady. One, two, three, go!

Spanky- whoo-hoo!

Alfalfa- Yeah! whoo!

Butch- Grrr! String 'em, woim!

Racers- Aaah! Aah! Oh, no! Aaaaaah!

Butch- All right!

Woim- Yeah!

Butch and Woim- whoo-ooh-hoo! Aaaaaah!

Spanky- You snotwads stole our racer!

Butch- Finders keepers,losers... suck!

Alfalfa- Ah, bite me!

Darla- Waldo, I think we have to turn here!

Waldo- Girls have no sense of direction.

Darla- You know, you're starting to get on my nerves.

Race Offical- Huh? Uh... Oh! Ohh!

Alfalfa- watch out!

Spanky- Get out of the way! Comin' through!

Shoppers- Aaah!

Spanky- Excuse us! Move!

Old man- You little rascals!

Spanky- Sorry! 10 points for the old guy!

Waldo- It's time to lose these losers. Atomic batteries to power. Turbines to speed!

Spanky- They're gettin' away!

Alfalfa- Hold on to your beanie!

Spanky and Alfalfa- whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!

Butch- Activate rocket boosters! You idiot! You put them in...

Butch and Woim- backwards! waaaah!

Spanky and Alfalfa- whoo-hoo! Yee-hah!

Waldo- These two again? I really hate to do this.

Spanky- Huh?

Alfalfa- Yikes! Spikes!

Darla- Hey! You could've killed them!

Waldo- Just forget about that soap-sucking nincompoop!

Darla- So you're responsible for the bubbles at the talent show! Pull over right now! I'm not

finishing this race with you!

Waldo- You got it, babe. Now get out.

Spanky- Where in tarnation are we?

Alfalfa- Look! we're back in the race!

Spanky- Hey, pretty good shortcut!

Woim- Hey, how'd they get here?

Butch- Don't worry. This'll fix 'em!

Butch and Woim- Yeah!

Spanky- what's that?

Spanky and Alfalfa- Aaah! Aah!

Spanky- we can't see! where are we? Aaaah! Help! What's goin' on?

Alfalfa- I can't see!

Spanky- My eyes! I can't see!

Stymie- You did it, Alfalfa! You won!

Alfalfa- We did it! All of us!

Froggy- Gentlemen, let's give Alfalfa a big..."Spoley-oley"!

Kids- Spoley-oley! Spoley-oley! Spoley-oley! Spoley-oley! Spoley-oley! Spoley-oley!

Spoley-oley! Spoley-oley!

Alfalfa- Thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you...

Butch- It ain't right! We go through all the trouble of stealing your racer...and you still win! Better

brace yourself, because now I'm really gonna kick your butt!

Alfalfa- I'm usually a lover, not a fighter… but in your case I'm willin' to make an exception.

Butch- Pig puckey!

Woim- Allow me!

Stymie- Looking good, man.

Kids- Yeah!

Spanky- Hey, there's the guy who risked his neck for us!

Alfalfa- I gotta admit, he turned out to be pretty okay, darn it.

Spanky- Put it there, pal. You're quite a guy. Us machismo types have a club… The He-Man

woman-Haters Club. Alfalfa, I'm extending a membership offer here. Now, what is it?

Alfalfa- That's not waldo!

Waldo- You'll be hearing from my lawyers.

Spanky- Then who's this guy who saved our butts?

Darla- Hi, guys. what's up?

Spanky- A girl! Ohh!

Stymie- Well, don't that beat all.

Alfalfa- Spanky!

A.J. Ferguson- Now it gives me great pleasure to present this beautiful trophy...and the prize Alfalfa Switzer and Spanky McFarland. Is that a cowlick, or are you just glad to see

me? Ah, the strong, silent type, eh?

Alfalfa- Don't take this personal, lady, but my pal's real disappointed.

A.J. Ferguson- Ohh! what's the matter, sugar pie?

Alfalfa- Well, we were just kinda hopin' that...A.J. Ferguson was gonna give us the trophy.

A.J. Ferguson- Well, boys, today's your lucky day. 'Cause that's exactly who I am!

Spanky- You're the best driver there is!

A.J. Ferguson- Well, thank you very much! You didn't do so bad yourself!

Spanky- Say, let's even things up. How 'bout one on this side?

A.J. Ferguson- There ya go!

Kid- What a great race!

Darla- I saw what you did to save my hanky, Alfalfa. That was very heartwarming.

Girl- And awfully romantical.

Alfalfa- Gee, thanks, but I thought you hated me.

Darla- I don't hate you. It's just sometimes you do mean things… like playing tricks on me at our


Spanky- Uh, I can explain that. It was me who wrecked your picnic with Alfalfa. You see, I

thought you was tryin' to steal my best friend. I thought you were tryin' to sabotage our club. But

I think I was wrong. I'm sorry, you guys.

Darla- My Alfalfinator!

Alfalfa- My delectable Darlooney!

Stymie- So, do you live around here?

Girl- Yeah.

Porky- Do you like dolls?

Girl- Mm-mmm. Mm-mmm.

Buckwheat- I do!

Girl- Cool.

Spanky- Say! Have we betrayed our forefathers? Have we trampled on the generations of

honest woman-haters...who came before us?

Uh-huh- Uh-uh.

Everybody- Huh?

Spanky- Hey, everybody! Uh-Huh's learned a new word!

Uh-huh- Actually, I've always had a rather extensive vocabulary...not to mention a phenomenal

grasp of grammar… and a superlative command of syntax. I simply chose not to employ them.

Everybody- Ohhh-tay!

Spanky- Well, I guess things just have to change sometimes.
