Ye Olde Minstrels is a 1941 Our Gang short comedy film directed by Edward Cahn. It was the 197th Our Gang short (198th episode, 109th talking short, 110th talking episode, and 29th MGM produced episode) that was released.


To raise money for the local chapter of the Red Cross, the gang stages an old-fashioned minstrel show with the help of Froggy's uncle, played by real-life minstrel man Walter Wills. The show is a success, netting the Red Cross a munificent $208.40.
