The Our Gang Kids set up a combine in order to enter Alfalfa, the star crooner, in an amateur contest at the local radio station. Spanky is the manager and Darla, Buckwheat, Porky and Gary make up his staff. But Butch, a violin virtuoso and big-time bully, plans on winning the contest, and intimidates Spanky into trying to convince his client to withdraw from the competition. Alfalfa wins with his rendition of "Just an Echo in the Valley," while Spanky ends up with a black-eye, courtesy of Butch, but gives Bully Butch two in return. Heard, while the boys are listening to the contest on the radio, are the voices of Marvin Hartley singing "Honolulu Baby" from "Mike Fright", and Olive Brasco's rendition of "The Ice Cream Song" from "Shrimps for a day." - IMDb
