Released in 1938 by MGM, Hide and Shriek is an Our Gang / Little Rascals comedy short directed by Gordon Douglas. This is the last Our Gang short, or any short, produced by Hal Roach Studios.
Assuming the identity of X-10, Sooper Sleuth, Alfalfa has opened his own detective agency. Darla is his first client since someone has stolen a box of candy from her. X-10 and his partners X-6 and X-6 ½ (Porky and Buckwheat) are on the case.
Tailing the suspected culprits, Leonard and Junior, the detectives wind up in an amusement park house of horror where they are frightened nearly out of their wits. It doesn’t take long for Alfalfa to be disenchanted with the detective business and he soon hangs an ‘Out of Bizzness’ sign on his door!
