The gang's beloved teacher Miss Pipps (Sara Haden) is fired by crabby old school board chairman Mr. Pratt (Clarence Wilson), who believes that the teacher is too "nice" for her job. With the help of friendly school custodian Mr. Swenson (Christian Rub), the kids stage a play for the local PTA, explaining why Miss Pipps should not be dismissed and simultaneously exposing Mr. Pratt as the nasty curmudgeon that he is. As a result, Miss Pipps is reinstated and Pratt is duly punished -- only to be forgiven by the surprisingly charitable children. One of the better MGM Our Gang comedies, the one-reel Come Back, Miss Pipps was originally released on October 25, 1941.
