Young Sherlocks is a silent comedy short in the Our Gang / Little Rascals series, released in 1922 by Pathé and directed by Charley Chase, Robert F. McGowan and Tom McNamara.
Eager to be detectives, the gang forms the Jesse James Juniors (JJJ) detective agency, and is soon joined by Sunshine Sammy, but the gang is not ready to accept him into their agency.
In order to be included Sammy tells the story of how he and Jackie and Dinah, the mule, rescued Peggy, who had been kidnapped.
He also claims he used his reward money to build his own town called Free Town which sounds like a utopia for kids.
