Our Gang comedy in the making

Course, what we don't know is that the curly headed child doesn't live on a farm because he's the rich mill owner's kid, and there isn't a proper place to put the pig. But he somehow gets the animal home and hides it from his Aunt Matilda (she's nearsighted, but she smells that there's just something not right). Two reels of merriment until Dad gets home from work and donates the pig to the 4H Club experimental farm out in the next county.
