Movieland Wax Museum- The Awful Tooth

Our Gang is one of the most popular short film series of all time, and its characters are all just as famous. The scene here at the Movieland Wax Museum is from the 1938 film "The Awful Tooth". In this picture we see Alfalfa, Painless Parker, Darla, and Spanky. Some trouble appears to be brewing.

Another view shows Buckwheat, Pete the Dog, Alfalfa, and Painless Parker. This was a fairly large set with six figures. It had terrific lighting and great atmosphere.

This clapboard sign shows the movie as being from 1937, but all the resources I've used says that it is from 1938. I would say that they are correct and this sign is not accurate. Antique props from the set sold for $3200, and the set itself sold for $1200 at the infamous Movieland auction.

Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer, his figure sold at auction as part of a lot of five for $5000.

George "Spanky" McFarland, one fifth of the $5000.

Darla Hood doing her thing.

Billie "Buckwheat" Thomas and Pete the pup.

This might be Jack Norton as Painless Parker, also credited as Dr. Schultz at IMDB.com. His figure sold individually for $700.
