The Weaver Brothers and Elviry have migrated from their usual hard-scrabble digs in the Ozarks and have taken up truck-farming (raising fruits, vegetables and flowers) on some more-bucolic farm land outside the city-limits sign of Pasadena, California. There small farm is adjacent to the estate of a wealthy snob and it stands to reasons that he and the Weavers are not going to the same social functions. Things get worse when the Weavers start taking migrant youths off of the streets, feed them, bed them, and employ them in their gardens. One of the migrants is a tough little cookie, Sock, of the type usually played by Frankie Darro (and is played by Frankie Darro here),and he makes some problems because he isn't totally convinced the Weavers aren't just out to exploit him and his fellow vagabonds. THe film also has time for the budding romances between Sock and Pansy, and between Bill Bennett, a juvenile probation officer, and Joan, the daughter of the rich snob. The climax comes when the migrant boys win first prize, with an Abraham Lincoln float, in Pasadena's annual "Tournament of Roses Parade" that they designed themselves and used flowers nurtured by them in the Weavers' gardens. (The film was made and released (November 25, 1941) shortly before the Japanese sneak-attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, and the Rose Bowl that year was moved to Durham, North Carolina, because of the fear of the Japanese bombing the West Coast.)

The Peppers - Mrs. Pepper and her five children Polly, Ben, Joey, Davie and Phronsie - are a poor family (the six of them sleep in a total of four beds in two rooms), but they love each other and as a result are happy. Mrs. Pepper's husband, John Pepper, a mining engineer, died when the copper mine in which he had half ownership collapsed atop him. Mid-teen Polly was deeded his part of the mine, which her mother has told her her father wanted her to keep at least until she became of age, despite he never having found copper in it. Polly often acts as the family guardian to her siblings while Mrs. Pepper is at work. By chance, Polly and Joey meet well-off but lonely mid-teen Jasper King, who ends up befriending all the Pepper children. Jasper lives with his wealthy businessman grandfather, J.H. King, who pays his grandson no attention as he is all consumed with making money to the exclusion of all else. J.H. has no interest in Jasper befriending this poor family until he learns who they are as J.H. has purchased the other 50% control of the mine and wants Polly's half for a song if possible to start developing it. Without telling them of his intention, J.H. starts spending time with the Peppers, wooing them with gifts. But J.H., out of circumstance, is forced to spend more time with the Peppers than he ever imagined. The Pepper children love their new friends J.H. and Jasper, but will that change if they learn J.H.'s initial friendship motive of wanting Polly's half of the mine?
