The film begins with a moving fan rolling down the street. The boys are thrilled when they see a beautiful new toy fire engine on the truck and follow it--hoping to make a rich new friend. However, the new boy wants nothing to do with them and won't let them ride his neat firetruck. So, the gang decides to build their own. Not surprisingly, when they take it for a spin on the big hill, the shortcomings in their design become all too apparent.
This film bears a lot of similarity to another Our Gang short--"Hook and Ladder"--which is about the boys building their own firetruck in order to help the local firemen put out fires. However, the rear-projection in the final scene is a lot more obvious here in "Hi' Neighbor" and it's not quite as good as the earlier film. Worth seeing but far from their best.
