This was Eugene 'Porky' Lee's first Our Gang comedy. Spanky refers to him as his 'little brother'.
This is one of the Our Gang shorts in which a solar eclipse is featured as part of the plot. THe local black community have gathered at a lake to conduct baptisms during the mid-day darkness. This may have been inspired by the relatively recent, near-total (90%) eclipse seen in Southern California on September 10, 1923. An eclipse is also featured in the earlier, silent Our Gang short Spook Spoofing (1928).
