Plot

Upset because, as a leap year baby (he only has a birthday every four years), Froggy bemoans the fact that he has almost never had a birthday party. The gang decides to throw a surprise party in Froggy's honor, but they pretend to throw him out of the clubhouse in order to keep it a secret. Vengefully, Froggy sneaks back and sets all sorts of booby-traps for the other gang members and then shows up at the party disguised as a new girl in town. But when Froggy discovers that the party was for him, he becomes guilty and sets off all the traps by himself.

Note

This was the last short with Edward Cahn as Our Gang's regular director. He would return in 1943 to direct Three Smart Guys. Herbert Glazer takes over directing beginning with Doin' Their Bit.
