The Little Rascals were a mischievous crew of youngsters. In short: Spanky McFarland (Travis Tedford), who was the president of the "He-Man Woman Haters Club," and Buckwheat (Ross Elliot Bagley) chose their buddy Alfalfa Switzer (Bug Hall) to be the driver for their club's go-kart, "The Blur," in the upcoming Soap Box Derby rally. But instead of representing, Alfalfa was found canoodling with his sweetheart, Darla (Brittany Ashton Holmes), in the anti-girls clubhouse, no less. One might imagine that all the havoc they'd wreaked to sabotage the romance in the 1955 television series, which later became a 1994 film, would have aged the kids real fast. That leaves me wondering, what do The Little Rascals kids look like now?
The Little Rascals is actually an adapted version of a series of 1920s comedic short films, Our Gang, which was centered on the adventures of a poor group of neighborhood kids. In the adapted film version, Spanky and Buckwheat get busy sabotaging Alfalfa and Darla's budding relationship with whoopee cushions; meanwhile, their prized go-kart is nabbed. Oh, and somewhere in the midst of all the mayhem, Alfalfa accidentally burns down the clubhouse. The film is quite the comedic romance and, if you're a product of the 1990s, like me, there’s a solid chance that it was a big part of your childhood.
Most of the Rascal clan reunited in 2014 in honor of the film’s 20th anniversary, according to 22 Vision, and they tried on versions of their classic costumes to recreate the film's posters.
Here's what they each look like now, and what they've been up to since the iconic '90s film.
