The Little Rascals

Other mistake: When Alfalfa takes some flowers to Darla, Waldo (the rich boy) turns up and Darla's friends comment on the rich kid. As one girl is saying her line, 'He's smoother than a baby's bottom' you can see the girl next to her mouthing the same line.

Other mistake: When Waldo and Darla are heading towards the go-cart race, as Waldo is phoning his dad, you can see that Darla is looking straight at the camera, then looks at the back of Waldo's head and keeps looking that way for the rest of the scene. It's obvious that Darla was not supposed to be looking at the camera, especially if you watch the ending credits, where people are telling her not to look at the camera.

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.
