Bored of Education is a comedy short that chronicles the attempt to get out of school by children named Alfalfa and Spanky. It won the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film under the One-Reel category. It was the first contribution in the Our Gang series by the director Gordon Douglas. Bored of Education was loosely based on Robert F McGowan's short "Teacher's Pet." Hal Roach produced the series in the 1920s and 1930s. He bought back the rights from MGM and repackaged the shorts for television under the name The Little Rascals.
