Shrimps For A Day

BEST DVD VERSION

The kids from the orphanage are invited to a party being hosted by Mr. Wade but Spanky is excluded on account of his bad behaviour. Unbeknownst to Mr. Crutch, the horrible bully in charge of the kids, Spanky hitches a ride to the party on the roof of the bus. When they arrive, the kids dismount from the bus and give Mr. Crutch grief right under the watchful eye of the host. Mrs. Wade excitedly tells the children that new clothes will be offered to them all. Crutch leaves and the kids get changed into their new outfits. Some of them, it has to be said, look ridiculous. They then take their places at the table ready to be served cake.
