The Our Gang members want to raise money for the Red Cross. Of course they decide to put on a musical show. With the help of Froggy's uncle, an old minstrel show man, they hire the Greenpoint Auditorium for their event. The highlight is Walter Wills and the Our Gang doing a tribute to the great minstrel man George Primrose. It is reasonably faithful to the minstrel show art form with Spanky as interlocutor, and Mickey and Froggy as side or end-men. Darla Hood sang a song's line, solo just before Lazy Moon was sang by Walter Wills.
