Farina sees a newspaper ad offering jobs to "colored boys" to be pages at a fancy pet show; the rest of the gang imagines their pet winning a big prize. Whlle Wheezer tries to corral his five puppies, the other little rascals get their animals ready: Mary Ann has a parrot, Chubby has a pig, Jackie imagines winning a prize big enough to buy his first airplane. When they arrive downtown, will they be allowed to enter the contest? Meanwhile, Dorothy has no interest in the pet show; she just wants to put on a clean frock and jump in a mud puddle.

Going To A Pet Show With The Little Rascals
22 April 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An OUR GANG Comedy Short

Farina alerts Chubby, Jackie & the rest of the Gang about a fancy pet show taking place downtown, prompting the kids into entering their pig, goat, mice & toads. Meanwhile, little Wheezer is discovering that PUPS IS PUPS as he tries to keep his five rambunctious puppies from running all over town.

A funny little film, with lots of interaction between the Rascals & their animals. Recurring highlight: Dorothy & the mud puddle. That's Charlie Hall as the violin player.
