The Little Rascals

Corrected entry: At the beginning when Alfalfa is in the boat and the girl slicks his hair back, there is a shot where Alfalfa's hair is already up. When she kisses him, his hair pops up again.

Correction: Actually Darla pushes his hair down, right before she kisses him.

Corrected entry: How does Darla find time to leave the recital, get changed, and be in the rich kid's pool before Alfalfa can get there running, when he left before the ballet recital was over?

Correction: Since the recital was over when the two left, Darla was supposed to have ridden with Waldo. So it seems logical she'd change into her swimsuit there. And it also, during the chase scene, gives you the idea that they have been running for awhile. So it is possible she had time.

Corrected entry: When Darla's friend says, "You're not thinking about Alfalfa, are you?" Darla replies, "No, no, no, no, no" as she says this, she looks right at the camera, and she also looks straight at the camera when all the girls say "Boys. Eurgh."

Correction: Not a real mistake.

Visible crew/equipment: When Alfalfa is being chased by the bullies, he dives into someone's pool and swims across. When he gets out, there's a shot of him standing there with the house behind him. A couple seconds later the dog starts barking at him. Behind the dog, leaning up against a wall, is the cardboard cutout of the house used in the previous shot.

More trivia for The Little Rascals

Question: During the go-cart race, several shoppers are sent flying by the errant carts, one of them an old man who yells "Little rascals" at the kids. He's not listed in the credits but I could swear the old man is Robin Williams in makeup.

Answer: I tried looking this up on the IMDb and couldn't find anything about Robin Williams there. My only suggestion is to watch it again and see if there is a list of extras in the credits somewhere. Maybe that's all the part was, an extra.

Answer: That part was originally supposed to be played by Spanky McFarlane, the original little rascal, but died before production began. So an extra was used.
