Determined to get out of school to attend the circus, the Our Gang kids fake an epidemic by splotching their faces with ersatz measles. The doctor quickly figures out what the kids are up to and orders the young tricksters to remain in bed, even after it is announced that everyone else in their classroom has been given free circus tickets. A few clever gags notwithstanding, Circus Fever, originally released on February 8, 1925, does not hold up that well. Far better are the later Our Gang films that borrowed the basic plot elements of Circus Fever, notably Teacher's Pet, Fish Hooky, Spooky Hooky, and Three Smart Boys.
