Our Gang - Where are they now?
« on: January 14, 2008, 04:31:46 PM »
 This is from an e-mail I received today.  I wish the pictures would have shown up to remind you, who these people are/were.
       
 Remember Our Gang?
What ever happened to those people?

 Well, here it is .. sad! THE OUR GANG CURSE

 Alfalfa -- Carl Switzer was shot to death at age 31.
 
Chubby -- 300-pound Norman Chaney died at age 22 following an operation.

 Buckwheat -- William Thomas died at age 49 of a heart attack.

 Darla Hood -- The Our Gang leading lady contracted hepatitis and died at age 47.

 Brisbane -- Kendall McCormas, known as Breezy Brisbane, committed suicide at age 64.

 Froggy -- William Robert Laughline was killed in a motor scooter accident at age 16.

Mickey Daniels --  He died of liver disease at 55.

 Stymie -- Mathew Bear led a life of crime and drugs. He died of a stroke at age 56.

 Scotty Beckett -- He died at age 38 following a brutal beating.

 Wheezer -- Robert Hutchins was killed in an airplane accident at age 19.

 Pete the Pup --  (that cute dog with a circle around his eye) -- He was poisoned by an unknown assailant.

 Butch -- Currently lives in California.

 And Spanky... Robert Blake,  was accused of murdering his wife.  <This was in error...he did not play Spanky.>I did not know that was Robert Blake!
Did any of you? Wow.    ::lookaround::

The e-mail stated that Mickey died at 55.  Wikipedia states that Robert Blake replaced Porky.   Were there two Mickey's? 

  I used to watch Our Gang years & years ago.  Still like classic shows in black & white.  My brother used to have a crush on a neighborhood girl named Rosalie who resembled Darla.   ::blushing::

That one went over my head, even though I lived in CA for a few years.  I should have picked up on it right away.  Duhhhh.   ::doh::  Thanks for bringing it up.  (teehee)
