Storyline

JJ is forced into joining the Satan's Knights street gang. However, he is a less than active member, especially when it comes to getting involved in the gang's ongoing turf war with the Warlords. When he is threatened with physical harm if he doesn't participate in the next rumble, he must find a way to get Florida and James out of the house before the gang's leader, Mad Dog, comes and physically removes him from the house.

Oscar De Gruy and Douglas Grant

"JJ and the Gang" finds JJ an unwitting member of the Satan Knights in their ongoing street war against the Warlords. Gang members Sweet Pea (Douglas Grant, later seen in "The Lunch Money Rip-Off") and Neck Bone (Michael Roberts) personally invite the new recruit to tonight's 'dance.' As there are only 100 Knights to 500 Warlords it's a sure bet that someone's bound to get hurt and JJ appreciates the fact that his body hasn't got any holes in it! Successfully getting their parents out of the house for an evening at the movies, Thelma and Michael meet the fearsome Satan Knights leader Mad Dog (Oscar De Gruy), who fails to impress JJ's sister: "JJ, somethin' is here to see you!" An exchange over names offers one of Thelma's finest moments in the entire series: "when I was born my mama took one look at me and called me Thelma, just like your mama took one look at you and called you Mad Dog!" The sickly act doesn't convince the juvenile delinquents, accompanying JJ through the street to encounter James and Florida, who are stunned to learn that their eldest son is a gang member. Mad Dog allows his gun to speak its peace, and JJ makes a pronouncement: "somebody's been shot!"
