Released in 1932 by MGM, Hook and Ladder is a comedy short directed by Robert F. McGowan in the Our Gang / Little Rascals series of films.
The gang is proud to respond when the local Fire Chief calls for volunteers. Getting into the spirit of the thing, they get busy and form their own fire department. They cobble together uniforms for themselves, install a fire pole, and even have an alarm system – powered by a dog and cat.
When the gang gets a chance to put out a fire they fly to the rescue on their custom-made fire engine!
