When Bigshot Jones gives his dog to the All-For-One Club, Buckwheat names it 'Smallpox'. Froggy and Janet mistakenly think that Bigshot has given Buckwheat the disease of the same name. Froggy, Janet, and Mickey proceed to incite a panic in the town of Greenpoint by spreading rumors of a smallpox epidemic. Written by

Although technically not an Our Gang entry in the strictest sense (released as an MGM Miniature), this film was shot on a four-day shooting schedule (October 4-7 1943). Ironically it reversed a losing trend of the series by bringing in $4,372 in rental profits. The previous four Our Gang installments lost money during their initial releases. See more
