Just as they did in the 1941 Our Gang comedy Ye Olde Minstrels, the gang prevails upon old-time minstrel impresario Walter Wills to help them stage a fund-raising musical show. Highlights include the ensemble number "When Grandma Wore a Bustle", the barbershop-quartet set piece "Songs of Long Ago", and the grand finale "Dances Old and New". Alas, the kids are unable to post the profits because gang member Mickey (Robert Blake) has allowed most of the audience to enter for free, but good old Walter Wills comes to the rescue once again. This one-reel entry was originally released on January 24, 1942.
