Shivering Spooks is a 1926 short silent comedy film directed by Robert F. McGowan. It was the 52nd Our Gang short subject released. One of the child actors, Johnny Downs, went on to become a successful character actor and starred with George Zucco in The Mad Monster (1942).
A phony spiritualist named Professor Fleece dupes gullible people into believing he can contact the dead through seances. When the Our Gang kids disrupt one of his seances, the Professor orders his henchmen to scare the heck out of the kids so that they will leave the area.
