Storyline

The gang is befriended by a millionaire whom they save from a mugging. However, they begin to suspect that the man's son was actually one of the muggers. Knowing that the boy's father is still grieving for an older son he lost during the war, and would be devastated if he learned his only remaining son was a criminal, the gang sets out to reform the boy.

Trivia

The Press and Pictorial Department of the Office of Censorship disapproved this picture for export because of its bad portrayal of America, citing the mugging scene, a rich boy participating in crime for excitement and poor police work. See more »

Goofs

David Durand, Jimmy Strand and Buddy Gorman are billed on-screen as Danny, Pinkie and Stinkie respectively, but when Muggs introduces them to Louise, they're called Dave, Lou and Slug. Durand is called "Dave" also in another scene. See more »

Enjoyable series entry
22 September 2004 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

The East Side Kids, now sans Sunshine Sammy Morrison and Bobby Jordan but with Huntz Hall and Billy Benedict, rescue a rich passerby (Herbert Heyes, later to play Mr. Gimble in Miracle on 34th Street) from a mugger. The grateful tycoon invites the boys over to his pad, where a fully equipped gymnasium awaits them. There are subplots involving Heyes ne'e'r do well son (Johnny Duncan, a few years before playing Robin in the Columbia serial Batman and Robin )and his feisty daughter (Louise Currie). The otherwise unknown Al Stone delivers an amusing one-off performance as cousin Herbie, an erstwhile East Side Kid whose relationship with Muggs and Glimpy is somewhat convoluted. One of the wittier series entries.
