Tire Trouble is a 1924 American short silent comedy film directed by Robert F. McGowan.[1][2] It was the 21st Our Gang short subject released.


The gang are running their own taxi service, and come across Ernie and Farina delivering laundry to J. William McAllister, the wealthiest man in town. His doctor and his wife have both convinced him that he's sick, but when the kids visit him, they convince him otherwise. They all drive off in the taxi to Emerald Beach and have the time of their lives.

Production notes[edit]

When the silent Pathé Our Gang comedies were syndicated for television as "The Mischief Makers" in 1960, Tire Trouble was retitled The Cure. Two-thirds of the original film was included; deleted scenes include the opening sequence where the gang are building their handmade taxi.
