The Short

Plot: Little heiress Jean Darling is looking for someone to spend time with her when she sees the gang outside her window and invites them in for a party. Her father has wired the house with practical jokes such as an electrified piano bench and rubber hot dogs. Her neighbor, Percy, leads the gang through the booby-trapped house, setting the traps off along the way. The gang finally gets wise and beats him up, but Wheezer sets off the burglar alarm and the police rush to catch the intruders, just in time as Wheezer sets off another booby trap that fills the house with falling balloons to allow the kids to escape.


  • "Heaven sent him - He's all mine!" - Jean
    • "Heaven nothin' - Wheezer comes from Goat Alley!" - Joe
  • "This etiquette I got don't taste so good." - Jackie
