Three angels are sent to Earth by Gabriel on a "fact finding mission" to blend in with the teenagers at a high school and learn first hand what peer pressure is. At the same time, Lucifer shows up to try to win some souls for his side. Chaos ensues, and so does a lot of music and dancing. All the main teenage characters, except the angels, are trying out to be in a band called "Hi-Tops". There are a few sub plots involving nerds, high school sweethearts, cheating on tests, taking drugs, etc.
Tom is chasing Jerry again. In a panic, the mouse runs into the doghouse of little Tyke, the bulldog. Right next to the sleeping Tyke sleeps Spike, his father. Tom unthinkingly snatches the puppy out of his house. When Spike wakes up and sees this, he delivers a stern warning: Stay away from my boy, or else.

Musical performances set in a rooftop nightclub in Manhattan.
Olive joins the police force. Over-protective Popeye follows her around, "rescuing" her but she's fully capable of handling herself. Can't quite say the same for Popeye.
Bluto is the ringmaster; Popeye is the star attraction. Bluto covets Popeye's assistant Olive. Popeye sticks his head in a lion's mouth, but Bluto has put a steak on Popeye's head. When he gets out of that, he does his high wire act: carrying a piano, and Olive, blindfolded. Bluto sabotages this with a banana peel and tosses Popeye to the monkey cage, while he has his way with Olive - until Popeye eats his spinach.

The Four Tops circa the early 21st century are more Vegas than their original R&B/soul roots, as proven by the 2002 DVD/video, 40th Anniversary Special. Recorded live on August 8, 1996, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, the quartet glitzes it up for slightly over an hour, performing fun versions of such classics as "Baby I Need Your Loving," "Reach Out (I'll Be There)," "Standing in the Shadows of Love," "Shake Me Wake Me (When It's Over)," and "Ask the Lonely," among others.
Topsy is the main character in this movie. When the black girl who "jes' growed" is auctioned as a slave but nobody will bid on her, Little Eva purchases Topsy for a nickel. That's the one part of this movie that I found plausible: slaveholders often refused to buy children, since their upkeep in food usually exceeded any labour they performed. There's a gooey romantic subplot between Mariette (the niece of Simon Legree) and George Shelby, son of a prominent slaveholder.
