Left in charge of his younger siblings Wheezer and Jean, "Our Gang" kid Jay R. Smith is stuck in the house due to a torrential rainstorm. Though he tries to keep apace of the mischievous youngster, Jay is unable to prevent the kids from drawing chalk pictures on the new wallpaper. With the help of fellow Gang members Joe Cobb, Allen "Farina" Hoskins, and Harry Spear, Jay tries to cover up the damage before his mother gets home from shopping. Unfortunately, the kid's well-meaning attempts and wallpapering only succeed in making a bad situation worse! Best gags: The opening byplay with stolen sausages (a routine repeated in the 1932 talkie Birthday Blues, and the climactic "creeping" ceiling. A mechanical but entertaining silent "Our Gang" entry, "Rainy Days" was originally released on February 11, 1928.
