The Story

Plot: The kids have started their own window washing business. Feeney and the Gas House Gang decide to meddle in on their business. They begin by throwing tomatoes at a window the gang has already cleaned, forcing the gang to clean it a second time. Feeney and his pals begin starting their own window washing business to compete with the gang's. But the gang have a few tricks up their sleeve, and pour glue into The Gas Housers' bucket of cleaning water. Later, Feeney has Iggy call the gang on the telephone to offer them a job. The gang soon find themselves washing dirty windows at an old abandoned house. It only gets worse when a couple of black marketers show up to get rid of some stolen goods. With the help of Julip the goat, the gang manage to tie up the two crooks, while Buckwheat runs to get help from the police. Buckwheat and the cops soon arrive, the crooks are taken away, the gang are rewarded $10, and then decide to quit the window washing business in order to form a detective agency.



  • As the characters are drawn in a noticeably different fashion then they normally are, this is believed to be one of the few issues in the series to have been drawn by somebody other than Walt Kelly.
