Directed by Gus Meins, Hi-Neighbor! is a 1934 MGM release of the Our Gang / Little Rascals comedy short film.
The gang is minding its own business when a moving van arrives in the neighborhood with a shiny red fire truck strapped to the back. Curious, the gang follows the truck to discover that the truck is owned by a snooty rich kid named Jerry who refuses to let them touch it or have a ride on it.
Things heat up when Jane, Wally’s girlfriend, shows up and Jerry offers her a ride. Not to be out done, the gang brags about their fire truck, which doesn’t exist. Jane says she’d be happy to have a ride in their truck too, as soon as she has a ride in Jerry’s.
Now the gang has to scramble to find parts and assemble a fire truck to impress Jane. Borrowing all sorts of things from around the neighborhood, they manage to scrabble together a fire truck in typical Our Gang style.
Not too impressed with their version of the fire truck, Jane agrees to another ride with Jerry but the ride quickly turns into a race. When the gang’s truck loses its brakes Jerry thinks he is about to be run down and he bails out onto a yard, leaving poor Jane on her own.
