The Champeen is the seventh 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.


Mickey and Jack engage in a boxing match, with each hoping to gain the affection of Mary Kornman.


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 "Big Fight". About two-thirds of the original film was included. The scene where Mickey and Tuffy race to get sodas for Mary was included in the hybrid Mischief Makers episode "Play Ball!". This short was remade as a part-talking film, Boxing Gloves, in 1929, with Joe Cobb and Chubby Chaney fighting over the affections of Jean Darling, and Farina as the promoter and referee.
