The gang forms a fire department; they end up thwarting a bootlegger, but not before their pet animals get drunk on his moonshine. 
This was the second "Our Gang" film made and the second to be released (following the release of the fourth film made, One Terrible Day). Because the first film made in the series is presumed lost, this is the earliest surviving entry.
This film marked Allen 'Farina' Hoskins first "Our Gang" appearance.
