A band of no-good punks beat a guy for driving too slow and steal his mechanical pencil, before arriving to pick up their missing member Jamie, the son of the man they've just beaten. Twist! Has the Rare honor of being riffed by both Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax.

For the ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' episode see ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S05E18TheAtomicBrain here]]''.

!! Tropes used in this short:

* CarChase: A very, very minor one, but when Jamie and the other students race to the Mayor's office, the gang chases after them, getting into their own cars to do so.
* DisproportionateRetribution: One of the city council members, in response to the gang's mischief, decides to punish ''all'' teens by eliminating all events for teens.
* DumbMuscle: The other punks don't seem able to comprehend just ''what'' exactly made Jamie quit the gang and storm off, despite him all but confirming that they just rolled his dad, and are only shown to have understood the situation by the following school day.
* FelonyMisdemeanor: A lesser example than ''Film/{{Cheating}}'', and one without any actual in-universe resolution.
* HeelFaceTurn: Jamie was one of the members of the group and possibly did some bad stuff, but when his father got beaten up, that was enough.
* InsigniaRipOffRitual: When Jamie pulls off his HeelFaceTurn, he tears off the gang's insignia from his jacket.
* MementoMacGuffin: The mechanical pencil, which Jamie knows well enough to immediately recognize as "just like" the one his dad has.
* NoEnding: Being an educational short, it breaks off suddenly and leaves the ending up to the class for group discussion.
* TeensAreMonsters: One of the City Council members thinks this and wants them all punished.
