If you really need to know such things, you're in good hands. The scoop is here to fulfill all your curiosities about "The Little Rascals" and where they are now. .

Email rumors were once flying about a "Little Rascals curse" that caused untimely deaths of Buckwheat, Darla, Spanky and the rest of the crew. Froggy was hit by a truck and died at age sixteen while riding his bike. Alfalfa pulled a knife on someone who owed him $50. The man shot him in self defense. Stymie lived a life of crime and died of pneumonia at age 56.
