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. What about Farina? Written by
In 2004, "Pups Is Pups" was selected for preservation by the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress as "historically and culturally significant." As of 2017, it is the only "Our Gang" short to receive this distinction. See more »
Dorothy love mud baths, Wheezer loves breaking glass and the Guy with neck trouble.
The weirdest of the OUR GANG shorts in it's history. Newspaper article reads, TEN COLORED BOYS NEEDED for pages at pet show! Perfect position for Farina our token gang member. Meanwhile Dorothy takes her first jump into a Mud Puddle. Two Asian boys see this add as well and claim that that prize money would buy a lot of chop suey! The Gang gathers their pets together from Hogs,frogs, mice and assorted vermin to the swanky high brow Pet show downtown. Meanwhile the gang has to watch mud loving Dorothy with not much success as she continues to swan dive into a mud puddle. Little Wheezer wants to enter his puppies who follow him around to the sound of his bell. Sort of like Famous Russian scientist Ivan Pavlov dogs and how they react to certain sounds. In a game of hide and seek. In a reverse turn of events, Wheezer has the dogs look for him and our k-9 group finds him in seconds and yank off his pants. Wheezer looses his pants and the bell is found by two black kids who ring it as the dogs chase them down the street. The youngsters discard the bell for safety. Meanwhile at the downtown pet show a uniformed clad Farina tries to let his motley gang into the show but his boss forbids the entry. Adjacent to the entrance is a Doctor's Office. The Doctor is tending his patient who has neck trouble. Tells the poor fellow to keep his head back and don't look straight.The weird fellow walks out looking straight up at the sky as he passes the Pet show entrance everyone follows suit and looks up out of reflex action. The gang uses that opportunity to enter illegally and enter their strange pets into the show. Mice,frogs and other rodents get mixed up into everything reeking havoc with the main floor showcases and the orchestra.Farina gets an earful from his peers and is fired. The Gang storms out of the floor show area. Meanwhile Wheezer minus his bell searches feverishly for his pups. He sees a second floor fire alarm box by a window. Wheezer takes a rock and throws it at the box but misses it and breaks an apartment window. First of many episodes where Wheezer and the problem of broken glass unite. Across town Dorothy jumps in for another mud bath session. Her Mom is blaming the Gang but in truth Mom should send her up the coast to the Napa Valley where the World famous Calistoga Hot springs are located. This was a strange experience to watch.
