The Short

Plot: On the last day of school, Joe Cobb and his brother, Jackie are fighting, Ernie has a hard time keeping track of Farina and Mango, and Mickey gets into a fight with a kid named Snoozer while trying to meet Mary. At the commencement day ceremonies, Mary recites "Mary Had A Little Lamb," but she forgets the last line. Joe plays his saxophone, which Jackie has filled with pepper to trigger people sneezing. Mickey tries to play "Humoresque" on his violin, but Snoozer drops a frog down the back of his shirt. The event is temporarily delayed when Farina falls into the well outside, giving Mickey time to once more beat up Snoozer, but his nemesis gets one last stunt in by bringing in a beehive which sends kids and adults running in every direction.
