It's the Fourth of July and the mother of Our Gang member Joe Cobb is doing a brisk business at her fireworks stand. Briefly left in charge of the stand, Joe does his best not to blow up himself or his friends, but a poorly-aimed skyrocket owned by Allen "Farina" Hoskins triggers a somewhat premature but undeniably spectacular display of pyrotechnics. Meanwhile, the gang's dog Pansy swallows several capsules that supposedly contain nitroglycerine. Though the capsules are basically harmless, they <I>are</I> combustible, and before long Pansy is spitting up explosions all over town. Originally released on June 26, 1927, the silent, two-reel Our Gang comedy The Glorious Fourth is also available in a shortened, TV version, Fireworks, which ends with a cautionary subtitle: "Remember, Kids: If this lesson you've learned/You'll never get burned! DON'T PLAY WITH FIRE!"
