Synopsis by Hal Erickson
To raise money for the local chapter of the Red Cross, the Our Gang kids stage an old-fashioned minstrel show with the help of Billy "Froggy" Laughlin's uncle, played by real-life minstrel man Walter Wills. What follows is not an Our Gang comedy at all, but an overproduced and somewhat tiresome musical revue. Nonetheless, the show is a success, netting the Red Cross a munificent $208.40. The one-reel Ye Olde Minstrels was originally released on March 18, 1941.
