    Great performances by all. Robert Coogan's performance as Sooky was especially good. Unfortunately, he disappeared soon after this film, and never got the recognition he deserved.

    This movie was a wonderful and refreshing movie to see. It reminds you how kids use to actually play outside, not like today where they sit around all day and play games on tv with their Nintendo PSP, etc. Would like to see it again with my grandchildren if it airs again.

    Indeed, we were lucky to see a freshly restored print of this film on TCM last night. I disagree with another reviewer's comments that it is too sentimental...this is how kids are, they do get emotional...and even adults shed tears when animals die. The simplicity of the story and Taurog's perfect direction allows the child actors to really shine in their roles. The actor who played the father was also very good. This film should be in heavy rotation in the summer when kids are home from school to watch it. Or, it would be just as good if it aired on Saturdays every few months.

    Thank you TCM for showing this movie for the 1st time in 50 years on Los Angeles television. I remember seeing this as a little boy and it has stuck with me all these years. Seeing it again made me appreciate the performances, direction and story even more. A great family film with a wonderful performance by Jackie Cooper. What's most fascinating is the J.L. Manciewicz dialogue which uses "children's logic" which is truly genuine and just the way kids talk and think. Norman Taurog's direction has just the right touch so that this is convincing. Although some of the scenes play like The Little Rascals, all is forgiven by the beautiful touching scenes between Skippy and Sooki. Beautiful print in amazing condition. I would like to see how this was restored. Don't let another 50 years pass, this should be required viewing.

    Way over the top with sentimentality, and audiences at that time loved it, but it doesn't age that well over time. It does have a great deal of charm still, and Jackie Cooper is quite a ham! Funny, often very touching. It is a lovely film overall.
