Lodge Night is the 15th Our Gang short subject comedy released. The Our Gang series (later known as "The Little Rascals") was created by Hal Roach in 1922, and continued production until 1944.


Joe arrives as the new boy in school, and the boys decide to initiate him into their secret club, the Cluck Cluck Klams. During the proceedings, a couple of auto thieves break into the barn, and when they make their getaway, Farina and Jackie are in the back seat.


When the television rights for the original silent Pathé Our Gang comedies were sold to National Telepix and other distributors, several episodes were retitled. This film was released into TV syndication as Mischief Makers in 1960 under the title "The Secret Meeting". About two-thirds of the original film was included. Deleted scenes from this print include some of the classroom footage from the beginning of the film, as well as all of the scenes showing Ernie and Farina at Prof. Culpepper's night school. The film was also released to the TV series Those Lovable Scallawags with Their Gangs under the title "Their Latest Prank".

During the scene where Mickey and Jackie are practicing their musical instruments, and eventually attempt to sneak out of their house, Mickey's hair frequently gets longer and shorter within certain cuts. This indicates that Mickey got a haircut sometime in between certain takes.
