The first series of its kind to feature children as the stars, originated in 1922 as a movie series of silent short films, later talking movie shorts, and eventually television syndication in 1955.

It was filmed back in the 1920's and 30's, long before Eddie Murphy ever uttered the word "O'tay" on SNL. This series was even old when we watched it in the 1970's.

It featured Spanky, Alfalfa, Darla, Buckwheat, Porky, Stymie, and the rest of the gang. Yep, you guessed it! My throwback memory for this week is 'The Little Rascals'!

Check out a few episodes and some special videos that highlight each cast member below and some of the bizarre deaths.
