Boxing Gloves is a 1929 Our Gang short comedy film directed by Robert A. McGowan under the pseudonym "Anthony Mack". Produced by Hal Roach and released to theaters by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer on September 9, 1929, it was the 90th Our Gang short to be released.
Joe's and Chubby's friendship is tested when their affections for Jean cause the two best friends to fight. At the same time, Farina and Harry have been unsuccessfully trying to go into business as fight promoters, and find in Joe's and Chubby's rivalry the ingredients for a perfect boxing match.
- Boxing Gloves marks the film debut of Jackie Cooper, who would go on to a successful career both with and after Our Gang.
- The third Our Gang short made with sound, Boxing Gloves was advertised as "all-talking," although much of the film is silent footage without overdubbed sound. It is the earliest Our Gang entry included in the Little Rascals television syndication package.
