Comedy festival 2

Original 1989 VHS release.

Overview

The Our Gang Comedy Festival II is a compilation/documentary, and the sequel to Our Gang Comedy Festival #1. It was originally released on VHS by GoodTimes Home Video in 1989. It was later reissued on May 23, 2002. The video was supposedly released on DVD, but copies are difficult to find. The reissued versions were also sold as part of a box set with other Our Gang videos from GoodTimes. The video was notable for claiming to have "lost episodes never see on TV!", though no lost shorts were actually shown.
