Many of the Our Gang films were sold to television between 1955 and 1960, and many were eventually edited for syndication. The Pathé silent films were shown on television as part of the Mischief Makers and Those Lovable Scallawags With Their Gangs package. Both packages removed content from the films to compensate a twelve to thirteen minute time slot.

Beginning in 1971, King World Productions edited the Hal Roach sound films that contained content deemed politically incorrect. King World continued to carry these prints until sometime in the 1990's, when much of the deleted scenes were reinserted.
