Olympic Games, released by Pathé in 1927, is a silent comedy short film directed by Robert F. McGowan, and is part of the Our Gang / Little Rascals series of films.
Inspired by the Olympics being played out in Stockholm, the gang decides to stage their own version at home. As they struggle with things like the shot put, foot races and hurdles, and pole vaulting, Wheezer and Minnie, his dog, are hiding and giving them the Bronx cheer (raspberry), causing the gang to beat up on whoever they suspect is making the noise.
The games degenerate into a free-for-all when a rival gang shows up, harassing the gang and throwing garbage at them, and the gang reciprocates.
