The Dead End Kids ride a freight train through California. After the kids get arrested for vagrancy, members Tom and Pig are hired to work on a ranch owned by kindly Mama Posito. Tom learns that Posito hasn't seen her son in years, but believes that he may still be alive. In an attempt to steal her money, Tom decides to pose as her son. However, Posito's benevolency soon gets the best of Tom, and he decides to stay with her for love, rather than for greed.

The Little Tough Guys
The series was now officially coined "The Dead End Kids and The Little Tough Guys". However, much of the attention for most of these entries would be on the original Dead End Kids, while the Little Tough Guys were often reduced to walk-on cameos.
