So the Little Rascals movie was released a whopping twenty-five years ago this year! And whilst there are those of you who might remember the original TV movie shorts, a great deal of us grew up with this ’90s hit.
What other movie sported classics such as “Quick, what’s the number for 911?” and “Wood doesn’t grow on trees!” and “Dear Darla, I hate your stinking guts. You make me vomit. You’re scum between my toes. Love, Alfalfa”? None, that’s what.
But what are those ridiculously adorable little tikes up to now? Well, they’re not so little anymore, that’s for sure…!
1. Alfalfa (Bug Hall) – THEN
Alfalfa came into play early, chosen as he was to be the go-kart driver for the ‘He-Man Woman Haters Club’. The go-kart in question was simply called ‘Blur’, and it was Alfalfa’s job to make sure the club won in the big Soap Box Derby style race. But when he didn’t show up, the club were horrified to discover that he was actually sweet on “a girl!” – that girl being Darla. Anyway, the club members set out to break the two up, with disastrous consequences to follow…
As for Bug Hall… well he continued acting regularly, and has appeared in family favourites such as Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves and The Big Green. He’s also tried his hand at television, starring in shows such as CSI: Miami, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Nikita. He got married in 2017 to Jill de Groff, and they live happily together with their daughter.
