The Short

Plot: Froggy's Uncle Walt overhears the mayor of Greenpoint making a radio speech about the fine work of the USO entertaining troops overseas. He encourages the gang to put on a show for local soldiers stationed in town. The show features tap-dancing boys in uniform, Janet singing "I Love A Man In Uniform" and Spanky and Froggy doing a sketch call "A Day In Camp." It all ends with a patriotic finale called "The Allies On Parade."

  • None


  • Much like Ye Olde Minstrels, this short has virtually no plot and is basically a pale retread of past much better "show-within-a-show" shorts, such as Our Gang Follies Of 1938.
  • This was the last of three appearances of Walter Wills as Froggy's Uncle Walt.
