Any of the kids: I hated Our Gang. It was the worst part of my life. The Roach studios wasn't fun at all, and Laurel and Hardy were so mean to us. MGM, on the other hand, was a great place! Louie B. Mayer always encouraged us to have a good time. George Sidney loved us kids! And the canteen wasn't racially segregated like the one at Roach's.

MGM executive: Comedy is old hat we need to move with the times. I want to see big changes with Our Gang. I want to see more musical numbers, more patriotism, more morals and preferably a whining kid with a New York accent too. THAT'S what the modern audience wants, not freckle faced kids having fun.
Oops, actually that's probably what an MGM executive DID say
