The Rascals have a boxing arena that could pack them in if they could find fighters who would actually mix it up. Harry and Farina notice a rivalry between two very large young kids, Joe and Chubby, that would fill the bill if only the two heavyweights would put aside their gentle natures. Farina gets an idea: tell each of the lads that the other will take a dive in the second round. So the fight begins and the stands are filled; but will the combatants actually throw a punch? Ernie has one more trick up his sleeve to get the fists flying and the crowd on its feet. Sweet science indeed. Written by
'Boxing Gloves' was the episode when Jackie Cooper made his debut. It followed in the same format as an episodic television series with sound shot in black and white. What Charlie Chaplin did to the serial novel with his one and two reelers in the mid-teens, Hal Roach was doing now for the early 30's.
