"For Pete's Sake!" is a 1934 "Our Gang" short comedy film directed by Gus Meins. It was the 127th (39th talking episode) "Our Gang" short that was released.

Plot

Wally had finished filling little Marianne Edwards' favorite doll with sawdust. Just as he was handing it back to her, neighborhood bully, Leonard Kibrick grabs it with a rope and throws it out on a road. A car then crushes it. The "Our Gang" kids promise to purchase a new doll for the brokenhearted girl. Unfortunately, the kids have no money, Leonard's equally obnoxious father, who owns the toy store, agrees to give the kids a doll if they'll hand over their beloved Pete the Pup in exchange. Balking at this arrangement, the kids concoct a variety of moneymaking schemes, all of them doomed to failure. Tearfully, the youngsters trade Pete for the doll. Pete does major damage to the store seconds later. The store owner then grabs the doll back. But Pete's continued destruction convinces him to hand the doll and the dog back to the gang who then take it to Marrianne. cite web |url=http://movies.nytimes.com/movie/225671/For-Pete-s-Sake/overview |title=New York Times: For Pete's Sake! |accessdate=2008-09-20|work=NY Times]

This marks the first episode for Billie Thomas, who would play Buckwheat several months later. On this episode, Buckwheat is played by Stymie's sister Carolina. It also marks the first episode for Marianne Edwards and bully, Leonard Kibrick.

Several minutes of this film were edited out of the Little Rascals syndicated television package in 1971, due to percieved racism and stereotyping of African Americans. Most of these scenes were reinstated on AMC's showings of this film from 2001 to 2003.
