Hal Roach's Rascals is a series of VHS and DVD release of Our Gang comedies from Brentwood Home Video. Brentwood's first Rascals release was a two pack VHS anthology, The Little Rascals Scrapbook. This 1994 release consisted of public domain material, including uncut versions of Bear Shooters, School's Out, Our Gang Follies Of 1938 and Waldo's Last Stand.
Brentwood would not release another Rascals series until 2000. Their next release was a three VHS set, consisting of a handful of both silent and sound shorts. All of their prints were from other home video companies (Grapevine Video and Blackhawk Films. The majority of the series' Blackhawk Films prints had the company name blacked out, possible to avoid copyright issues. Also included in this release is a bonus documentary, "Hollywood Hall of Fame".
Later that year, Brentwood released a series of cheap two VHS releases. Only one short was included on each tape. Many of the shorts had already been featured in Brentwood's previous three VHS set. A notable error occurred with Brentwood's release of Shivering Spooks. Each VHS copy ended prior to the film's ending. As a result, "Shivering Spooks" was not included in future Brentwood releases.
All of the remaining shorts offered in this VHS series were released by Brentwood in a two disc DVD series that same year. The set also included the Hollywood Hall of Fame documentary, and readable biographies on Rascals, as well as a brief history of the series. The DVD release had some notable errors, namely on the box cover, that listed films not included on either discs, as well as inaccurate plot summaries for individual shorts. Additionally, several scenes in Official Officers are repeated, due to an issue with the DVD master.
The two ten minute shorts included in Brentwood's library (Spooky Hooky and Came The Brawn) were also included as bonus features on a number of Brentwood's non-Our Gang DVD releases.
