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.



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. (I never knew Buckwheat was a man.)

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

Froggy



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

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.
