Cousin Wilbur is a 1939 Our Gang short comedy film directed by George Sidney. It was the 179th Our Gang short (180th episode, 91st talking short, 92nd talking episode, and 11th MGM produced episode) that was released.
Against his will, Alfalfa invites his sissified Cousin Wilbur to join the All 4 One Club. The enterprising Wilbur immediately increases the membership by offering cash compensation (usually a penny or two) for every black eye and busted nose administered by Butch and Woim. When the two tough guys try to muscle in on the club, Wilbur surprises everyone by proving himself to be the best bare-knuckle fighter on the block.
This episode marked the return of Scotty Beckett, who was Spanky's sidekick from 1934 to 1935. Alfalfa, who joined the gang several months before Beckett left, replaced him at the end of that year. Beckett now returned as Alfalfa's nerdy cousin, replete the horn-rimmed glasses.
