When Bigshot Jones gives his unnamed dog to the All-For-One Club, Buckwheat quickly named the canine, "Smallpox". When Froggy, Mickey, Janet all other Our Gang members first hear, they mistakenly think that Bigshot has given Buckwheat the disease of the same name. Froggy, Janet, and Mickey proceed to incite a panic in the town of Greenpoint by spreading rumors of a smallpox epidemic, causing everyone that hear them, as they are warning all others around them, to jump to a wrong conclusion. Some even list their house address as "quarantined".
