Produced and released by MGM, Kiddie Kure is a 1940 comedy short featuring the Our Gang / Little Rascals kids, directed by Edward Cahn. This film marks the last appearance of Alfalfa as part of Our Gang, after appearing in 61 short films.
Miserable Mr. Morton is a hypochondriac and his doctor has recommended to his wife that maybe if they adopted a child it would take Mr. Morton’s mind off of his supposed illnesses.
Aware of the plot between his wife and the doctor, Mr. Morton invites the gang to lunch when they accidently break a window in his home. He figures if he can act crazy enough he can scare the kids, and also his wife will see how disruptive children would be and will give up her scheme. Instead, Mr. Morton is invigorated by the experience of having the kids around gets a new lease on life.
