Our Gang, also known as The Little Rascals or Hal Roach's Rascals, was a long-lived series of comedy short films about a troupe of poor neighborhood children and the adventures they had together. The films were produced for movie theatres by Hal Roach from 1922 to 1938, and by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) from 1938 to 1944. In the mid-1950s, the 80 Roach-produced shorts with sound were syndicated for television under the title The Little Rascals, as MGM retained the rights to the Our Gang trademark.
