Plot

It is Mr. Hood's birthday, and he has been eagerly anticipating a quiet dinner at home with his family. Darla then mentioned that she has invited her friends to the celebration: Alfalfa, Porky, and Philip. The well-meaning trio drive Mr. Hood to distraction with loud and interminable choruses of "Happy Birthday, Mr. Hood." Then they present their ill-conceived presents: a frog, a duck, and a cat. When the kids are not arguing over their favorite comic-strip characters, they are busily devouring Mr. Hood's birthday dinner. Mr. Hood, disgusted over the whole affair, declares he is going out to get a bite to eat and leaves.

Feed' em and Weep was minus Buckwheat due to a short illness and one of five episodes in a row (including two MGM Our Gang shorts) to not have George "Spanky" McFarland. In for Buckwheat is Philip Hurlic who some say resembled "Stymie". Philip appeared occasionally on Our Gang films when large numbers of children were needed for various scenes.
