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.

One of the most endearing Rascals films of all time
"Pups Is Pups" was the first "Our Gang" film for the 1930-31 season. This was the beginning of what is considered by many Rascals fans to be the best period in the series (roughly 1930-34).
The Gang wants to put their pets into the big pet show downtown. Wheezer wants to enter his puppies in the show, but the puppies have gotten lost. Knowing they respond to a bell, Wheezer rings every bell his can possibly find...bicycle bells, even a alarm bell (which he doesn't quite hit with a rock...he shatters a window instead). Can he find his puppies in time for the show?
If you saw "Pups Is Pups" on television growing up, you'll never forget it. The short is endearing, and the kids give natural performances. And the puppies are lovable. The one with the ring around its eye was to become the second Pete the Pup.
One of the best kids and animals movies ever. 10 out of 10.
