    Ok, this is a reply to correct some of the mistakes on your post about "Our Gang" & "The Little Rascals", and whatever became of them.

    Alfalfa was stabbed to death in a bar fight over a debt he owed...Fact

    Skipping to the end...

    Spanky and I apologize for not remembering his real name, but he died not to long ago of a heart attack. He was NOT Robert Blake. He was accused...but not convicted. Robert Blake was also a member of "The Little Rascals".

    Butch...just died within the last couple of months.

    I am skepticle of the rest of these and will get the true info and post it later.

    Please remember...most of what you read on the internet is untrue. It is either an outright lie, a gross exageration or someone with good intentions and bad information.

    Ask questios, send emails to the source of the info or to companies or agencies involved in the email. I think you will be surprised how many emails giving info even so-called "IMPORTANT" info is wrong.
