This episode of Our Gang begins with Porky and Buckwheat getting beaten up and their marbles stolen by Butch and his toady. So, the Porkster and Buckwheat go to 'The Revengers'--an organization where Alfalfa and Spanky promise satisfaction. However, being that the bullies are a lot bigger than Alfalfa and Spanky, once they pelt them with tomatoes, they run away--and right into the middle of a ballet recital. Alfalfa and Spanky dress up like the girls and end up being confused for members of the dance class--and it's up to them to try to fake their way through it.
This is a fair short--about average for the later Our Gang comedies. In other words, it's worth seeing but not among the best overall (since the earlier talking films of the series were better in my opinion). It has a few funny moments but nothing is all that memorable...other than seeing the boys in drag.
