When open auditions are announced for a radio variety program, the local station is besieged by aggressively overcoached "professional kids." Also auditioning is an impressive-sounding musical aggregation called the International Silver String Submarine Band --- which turns out to be none other than the "Our Gang" kids, equipped (or rather, armed) with home-made instruments. After suffering through an endless parade of cloyingly cute kiddie troupers (and inadvertently wrecking several expensive pieces of radio equipment in the process), the Gang members step up to the microphone and steal the show with a truly unforgettable rendition of "The Man on the Flying Trapeze". The irresistably entertaining "Our Gang" entry "Mike Fright" was first exhibited theatrically on August 25, 1934.
