Choo-Choo! is a 1932 Our Gang short comedy film directed by Robert F. McGowan.[2] It was the 114th (26th talking episode) Our Gang short that was released. It is a remake of the 1923 Our Gang film A Pleasant Journey.


Exchanging clothes with a group of mischievous orphans, the kids end up on a train headed for Chicago. Pressed into service as the kids' supervisor, effeminate Travelers Aid attendant Mr. Henderson (Dell Henderson) suffers torment, especially when he tries to prevent three-year-old Spanky from socking the nose of every adult in sight.

Things come to a head when the kids manage to get hold of some fireworks, at the same time accidentally releasing a menagerie of circus animals from the baggage car. At the end of the episode, Mr. Henderson is told he has the wrong children and must bring them back on a train to California.
