Football Romeo is a 1938 Our Gang short comedy film directed by George Sidney. It was the 173rd Our Gang short (174th episode, 85th talking short, 86th talking episode, and fifth MGM produced episode) that was released.
The gang squares off against "Butch's Assassins" in a crucial football game. Star player Carl Alfalfa balks at participating, leaving it up to Darla to coerce and cajole him into donning his uniform. The climax of the game finds Alfalfa attempting a sixty-yard touchdown, despite the formidable opposition of his lifelong rival Butch.
