When Dr. Hugo Robbin's laboratory is blown up, his nurse Ann Loring is charged with murdering the doctor. During her trial, a group of children continually disrupts the courtroom, claiming to have important evidence. The children are finally allowed to testify, but as a result of their testimony, their friend Dan, who runs a repair shop, is now charged with the crime instead of the nurse. The children are now determined to prove Dan's innocence, and they go to the abandoned laboratory to look for evidence, leading to a series of hazardous adventures. Written by
Watching Who Killed Doc Robin it looked like Hal Roach, Jr. was trying to start a new set of Little Rascals for the post World War II kids. The Little Rascals had come and gone and the original ones would live on in television syndication.
The plot such as it is involved the always sinister George Zucco as a mad scientist performing all kinds of sinister experiments until his lab exploded and he disappears. Nurse Virginia Grey is suspected of killing Zucco and some kind of device to use with nuclear weapons has disappeared as well.
In court the proceedings are interrupted by these boisterous kids who go out to Zucco's house and stumble into a solution for all that has gone on. If you've seen the Little Rascals, just add a haunted house and you know what to expect.
I was never a big fan of the Rascals so I might be prejudiced, but Hal Roach, Jr. proved you can't go back.
