Directed by Tom McNamara, The Cobbler is a 1922 Pathé release of one of the Our Gang / Little Rascals short silent comedies.
Mr. Tuttle is a grandfatherly, friendly cobbler with a shop in the neighborhood, where the gang is always welcome. Despite the quarreling among themselves and the trouble they sometimes make, Mr. Tuttle is very fond of the kids.
When a pretty little rich girl comes into the shop and then leaves in her fancy big car, the gang is a bit jealous, but Mr. Tuttle assures them when his pension check comes in he’ll treat them to a picnic day. Sure enough, the check arrives and they all prepare for their big picnic. On the way their car breaks down and, while Mr. Tuttle walks back to find water for the engine, the gang explores the area.
They come across a tramp living among huge piles of hay bales with tunnels and entrances and exits all over. When the tramp is angered at being disturbed by the gang he tries to throttle them!
