Stymie spots a dogcatcher taking the gang's dogs and lets them out of the dogcatcher's truck. But the gang thinks Stymie is stealing their dogs and threaten him. When it's learned that Stymie actually was rescuing their pets and that the dogcatcher now has Stymie's dog Petey in custody, the gang helps him in his attempt to save Petey before the dogcatcher can gas him.

I remember this Little Rascals short vividly. What I remember is that a mean dogcatcher comes along and takes Petey away from the kids and tells them it'll cost $5 to get him out and they'd better have it in a few hours or he'll be destroyed. So the kids go out searching for money. They find a dollar bill, which belonged to a lady coming out of the super market. She claimed the kids stole it. Spanky and Stymie go to get Petey but the dogcatcher claimed it was too late. Luckily, there was no gas in the macine so Petey was okay!
All I can say is that dogcatcher was really mean! I wonder if Budd Fine was hated after that performance. But it was a good performance because he could play a guy so hated by all. Oh, and a Happy 70th anniversary to The Pooch. It'll get as much recognition as any theatrical short from back then. Those Little Rascals got into all sorts of mischief, like remember the one where they explore a cave where a giant lives? Or the one where they build their own fire engine? Lot's of memories, but anyway, The Pooch was O.K., I really didn't like that dogcatcher. He was nasty, dispicable, and not only that, he wasn't even nice!
