Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Junior con man Freddie "Slicker" Walburn sells the Our Gang kids some "invisible rays," with which they hope to power their homemade mechanical robot. Miracle of miracles, the robot not only begins to move, but actually performs several of the gang's household chores. In truth, the robot is being manipulated by Slicker's cohort Billy Ray "Boxcar" Smith, but the kids don't find out until their rampaging mechanical man nearly lays waste to the entire neighborhood. The one-reel Our Gang comedy Robot Wrecks was originally released on July 12, 1941.
