Tired of doing chores, such as baby-sitting, at home, Spanky and Alfalfa, with Porky and Buckwheat tagging along, run away from home, arrive at Jenksville tired and hungry. Besides hunger pangs, they have encountered a pugnacious hound-dog, a swarm of bees, and a frisky pig. A kindhearted storekeeper, who is also the town constable, helps them get back home which, they have concluded,is not a bad place to get back to. Written by Les Adams <>

Spanky, Alfalfa, Porky and Buckwheat run away from home to a strange town called "Jenksville" (which is as surreal as anything you'll find in the Twilight Zone) where the local constable and shopkeeper decides to "teach them a lesson."

Better than the "teach those kids a lesson" shorts of latter years, because this short is just so easygoing. Porky and Buckwheat are indeed adorable and steal every scene they're in. Alfalfa has a funny scene where the punchline is "He's got it! My personality!" Darla has a very short cameo where she seems to be playing a pesky little sister instead of her usual leading lady role!
