The Pinch Singer is a 1936 Our Gang short comedy film directed by Fred C. Newmeyer. It was the 142nd Our Gang short to be released, although it was produced before the short which followed it on the release schedule, Divot Diggers.

The gang's Eagles Club holds auditions for a performer to send to a local amateur radio talent contest, with $50 going to the winner. Despite Alfalfa's repeated attempts to upstage his competition, Darla is chosen to represent the club at the talent contest after her performance of "I'm in the Mood for Love." However, when Darla fails to show up at the radio station, Spanky runs frantically to look for her, while Alfalfa decides to take it upon himself and take Darla's place on the radio program.

Alfalfa begins crooning "I'm in the Mood for Love." When the gang hears Alfalfa on the radio, they race to the pay phones at the nearest drugstore and rig the contest, calling in vote after vote for Alfalfa. Spanky returns to the station with Darla just as Alfalfa finishes the performance. As Spanky begins to berate Alfalfa for acting on his own, the emcee informs them that Alfalfa won the $50 prize. Suddenly, Spanky has nothing but confidence in Alfalfa's future singing efforts at which Alfalfa abruptly silences with a gong.
