Synopsis: It's the last day of school, and Scrappy and his boy seem to be looking to get sent to prison.

Comments: Apparently kids were easily distracted by fish in the mid-'30s. I suppose protein was scarce in the depression. Waggly rear on the spindly school hag. Tears just sit in Scrappy's eye pits. The dressed up music might be the Laurel and Hardy music. The animation is well done in the kid and poster shot. Quite the bald teacher. Elmer is much more interesting looking than the Scrappy twins. Blackface gag.
