Our Gang (also known as The Little Rascals or Hal Roach's Rascals) is an American series of comedy short films chronicling a group of poor neighborhood children and their adventures.
Keeping this in view, who were the original Little Rascals?
Producer/creator Hal Roach re-bundled 79 of the shorts to make 'The Little Rascals' TV series, which is still broadcast today.
Here are The (original) Little Rascals then and now.
- Billie 'Buckwheat' Thomas.
- George 'Spanky' McFarland.
- Matthew 'Stymie' Beard.
- Billy 'Froggy' Laughlin.
Likewise, are any of our gang still alive?
There are believed to be just five "Rascals" remaining following the passing of Moore and Darling. Robert Blake, perhaps better known for starring in the '70s TV hit "Baretta," Sidney Kibrick, Jerry Tucker, Mildred Kornman and Leonard Landy are thought to be the last living members of the "Gang."
What was Spanky's real name?
How much did the little rascals get paid?
Children who worked in the series typically started out earning less than $100 a week, and they never earned residuals-when the Our Gang films made their way to television in the early 1950s, the kids didn't get a penny.
