Friday Greetings, Little Rascals!
Remember watching The Little Rascals? Life was good. At least, television was good!
A bit of trivia about Our Gang, The Little Rascals:
~Created by Producer Hal Roach, The Little Rascals starred in 220 short films and one feature film from 1922-1944.
~One of these, Bored of Education, won an Oscar.
~The child actors received $40-$200 per week, and there were no residuals or royalties.
~Shirley Temple, Mickey Rooney, and Judy Garland were among those who auditioned for roles but were rejected (before their fame).
~Spanky (George McFarland) started at age 3. He was so darn cute then, wasn't he? George was on the team for 11 years. Spanky popularized the terms "okey dokey" and "okey doke."
Okey Dokey, BE A LITTLE RASCALLY THIS WEEKEND! Otay? xo
