The Short

Plot: Spanky and the gang have been putting out a newspaper called The Greenpoint Flash which they use to track down the mysterious leader of the Gas House Gang, a team of juvenile delinquents extorting money and harassing the younger kids. They're supported by Frank in their endeavor, but when they mention they might have information as to the leader of the Gas House Gang, he returns to take the evidence. As it turns out, he's been the leader they're looking for, but their evidence is a trap and they get him to sign a confession which they print in their paper. It's the last copy since a loose goat ends up eating their type.

  • This was the last of Juanita Quigley's two Our Gang appearances.
  • Darryl Hickman is the older brother of Dwayne Hickman of the later "Dobie Gillis" TV Series.
  • Maltin and Bann called this one of the better M-G-M shorts for its satirical spoof of old racketeering movies.
