Our Gang

>> Friday, December 9, 2011

Only vintage people will remember Spanky and Our Gang! Here are some things I bet a lot of you didn’t know. I certainly didn’t.  

These pictures are great.

Whatever happened to those people?

In case you forgot who is who, well here they are.


Carl Switzer was shot to death at age 31.


300-pound Norman Chaney died at age 22 following an operation.


William Thomas died at age 49 of a heart attack. (I never knew Buckwheat was a man.)

Darla Hood

The Our Gang leading lady contracted hepatitis and died at the age of 47.


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


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

Mickey Daniels

He died of liver disease at 55.


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.


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

Pete the Pup

He was poisoned by an unknown assailant.

And Spanky

Robert Blake was accused of murdering his wife. I did not know that was Robert Blake.

I'm not "vintage," but I remember them some. And I also didn't know Robert Blake was Spanky. They all (almost,, anyway) died young. Interesting.

Robert Blake was not Spanky. Robert Blake's was Mickey.
