The gang is once again putting on a big musical show, this time in Spanky’s cellar. Buckwheat is the orchestra leader and Darla and Alfalfa, the ‘King of the Crooners’, will be the featured singers.
However, Alfalfa has decided on a career in opera singing and refuses to croon, instead singing a version of The Barber of Seville, which doesn’t fit with the rest of the program. When Spanky lowers the curtain on Alfalfa’s performance, Alfalfa stalks out, heading for the Cosmopolitan Opera House. There he auditions and receives what he thinks is a contract, but not to begin for twenty years. Returning to Spanky’s cellar, Alfalfa brags about his bright future but Spanky tells him that one day Alfalfa will be out on the streets, while Spanky will be famous and will own a glorious nightclub.
Sitting on the sidelines, Alfalfa falls asleep and dreams that Spanky was right. Alfalfa is on the streets, singing for coins, while Spanky is super-rich and has his nightclub!
