Mail and Female is a 1937 Our Gang short comedy film directed by Fred C. Newmeyer. It was the 160th Our Gang short (161st episode, 71st talking short, and 72nd talking episode) that was released.



The Gang's male members, headed by Spanky, decide to create the He-Man Woman Hater's Club. When the kids ask who will be elected president, Spanky nominates his pal Alfalfa in absentia—because everyone knows that Alfalfa "hates women." Alas, at this very moment Alfalfa is writing a love letter to his sweetheart Darla. Just as he sends Buckwheat and Porky to deliver the note, Alfalfa is informed that he has been unanimously elected president of Spanky's new club. Without even asking what the club is all about, Alfalfa declares that all rules must be obeyed, lest the members suffer a paddling at the hands of "sergeant-at-arms" Spike. When Alfalfa discovers what the club is, he rushes over to Darla's house to retrieve the note. Suspicious, The Gang tails him. When they arrive, Alfalfa is forced to pose as Darla's "Cousin Amelia", leading to more complications when they seem to like "her".[1]
