As with most films, many of the Our Gang comedies had scenes planned for their final release, but were ultimately not used. In some cases, these scenes were removed to compensate for running time, while in other cases these scenes were removed due to poor testings with preview audiences. There were also instances in which proposed scenes were scripted, but ultimately were not filmed.
