After Alfalfa's father wrongly accuses him of bad behavior, Alfalfa decides to go into a life of crime. He gets the rest of the Gang to join him, all except for Spanky. But Spanky sees a chance to keep Alfalfa and the Gang out of trouble and at the same time help him with a chore. He tells the Gang he knows a house that is perfectly set up for robbery. In reality, Spanky has promised the house's owner to help her by carrying off some junk items. But after "robbing" the house, the Gang gets tangled up with a real burglar and ends up in front of a judge. Written by

Good Bad Boys is typical of what MGM allowed the Our Gang series to lapse into. Give me a time machine and let me go back and slap Jack Chertok around. Good Bad Boys centers around Alfalfa being unjustly accused of stealing... and without laboring with the details, suffice it to say lectures aren't funny! If Hal Roach ever saw this drivel it would've peeled the last 50 years off his life. Wasn't Our Gang supposed to be fun? There's not one gag in this one-reeler. Dismal; even below the one star I'm giving it. The only remotely interesting detail is it features a young Hugh "Ward Cleaver" Beaumont in the thankless role of the Judge's Aide... and no one's ever called Mr. Beaumont a dynamic actor.
