They are sent to work on a farm as punishment, where they meet a former heavyweight boxing champion named Slapsie Maxie Rosenbloom. The kids decide to help Slapsie Maxie by training him to fight again and get back in the ring as Kid Dynamite.

Things get complicated when the real Kid Dynamite, played by boxer Max Baer, shows up and the East Side Kids have to convince him to take a dive in the upcoming fight, so Slapsie Maxie can win and become a champion once again. Meanwhile, the kids get into more trouble with the law and have to outsmart a gang of criminals who are trying to fix the fight.

In the end, Slapsie Maxie wins the fight and becomes a champion once again, while the East Side Kids learn the importance of hard work and determination. “Kid Dynamite” is a fun and entertaining film that showcases the talents of the Dead End Kids and features some exciting boxing scenes.
