| Why Go Looking For Trouble?
Bob, Bill and their pancake-stealing dog Rags are back. This time they are going after skunks with a box-trap. There's also a woman wandering around with a birdcage, looking for her Dicky.

While youngsters -- the human stars were about 14 when this was shot -- have an odd appreciation of things, my one encounter with a skunk was neither anticipated nor pleasant for me. Admittedly, I was 31 at the time, so my interests were different, but when a skunk turns up in the boys' cabin instead of the trap, their attitudes change.

Bob and Bill may have been twins, but they weren't identical twins. Bob's hair was dark in this movie, while Bill's was blond. It is possible that Bill's hair was bleached so the two would be differentiable. Certainly, they are rarely filmed standing together, except on rough ground, making them seem to be different heights.
