Episode Summary

EDIT
Mike Fright
AIRED:
The gang arrives at the local radio station to audition for a show featuring child talent. Little did the station manager realize that The International Silver String Submarine Band was merely a bunch of ragamuffin kids with makeshift instruments. The station manager has no luck winning over a visiting prospective sponsor, as most of the "talent" is unimpressive, and the gang is generally disrupting the proceedings. As a last ditch effort, he finally gives the gang their chance to perform, and they win over the sponsor with a rousing performance of "The Man On The Flying Trapeze."moreless

      • This episode was filmed probably around the late spring or early summer of 1934.

      • In addition to the gang's version of "The Man On The Flying Trapeze," we get to see children singing "Honolulu Baby" (written by Marvin Hatley), "Jimmy Had A Nickel" and "My Little Grass Shack." Leonard Kibricks tries to get through "My Wild Irish Rose" on the trumpet. Interestingly enough, the opening and closing of the short do not feature the usual "Good Old Days." At the start of the episode, we hear "Little Dancing Girl" (the only Leroy Shield tune in the whole short) and at the end we get a reprise of "The Man On The Flying Trapeze."

      • The radio audience includes Joe Young (the brother of Robert Young, "Marcus Welby, M.D.") and Fern Carter (the real-life teacher of the Our Gang kids from 1922 to 1944). The piano player is Marvin Hatley, who was the studio's musical director.

      • The "band" in this film is "conducted" by Tommy Bond. The "musicians" include Stymie, Spanky, Scotty, Alvin Buckelew, and Jackie Wilson. Other featured kids include Leonard Kibrick and Billy Lee.

      • The gang would again audition in radio contests in "The Pinch Singer" (episode no. 143), "Framing Youth" (episode no. 159) and "All About Hash" (episode no. 190).
