Teacher's Pet: It's the first day of school and the gang isn't ready for readin', writin' or their new teacher Miss Crabtree. Jackie, Chubby and Farina decide to "welcome" her with gifts of sneezing powder, red ants and a mouse. School's out: Now it's the last day of school and Jackie's developed a big crush on Miss Crabtree.

For Pete's sake: Bully-Boy Leonard has broken Marianne's doll and brother Wally has to find the money for a new one but how? He offers the bully a barter: Pete the Pup! The Kid From Borneo: "Yum-yum, eat 'em up!" is all Spanky's "Uncle George" can say. But it's not his real uncle, it's "Bumbo the Wild Man"! Soon Stymie, Spanky, Wheezer and even Pet the Pup are running for their lives. Dogs is Dogs: Well, well, well, Spud fell in the well, but it's poor Wheezer who's suffering. He's forced to live with a mean old stepmother; his dog Pete is in the pound. The Pooch: Oh no, Pete the Pup is in trouble- he's been caught by the dogcatcher. If Stymie doesn't come up with five bucks fast, he'll be put to sleep! But Stymie can't find food, much less a five.
