More than twenty long years have passed since the movie, The Little Rascals, graced our theaters. The cinematic effects were different back then, everything was a little less sharp. The direction, acting style, and all that jazz, are no longer on par with today’s trends and technology. But the scenes remain crisp in our minds. Those who grew up in the 90s are quickly drawn back to the hilarious phrases we used to quote as kids, like “quick, what’s the number for 911?”
It’s one of those movies that will never grow old. It would take more than just two decades for it to fade from our minds, and it’s quite impossible to eradicate from our hearts. If you grew up in those days, you can’t help but see yourself in those characters. They are so familiar that they become your friends and brothers, and that’s why we’d like to know how this hilarious gang of children have grown. Where are they now? Check out these surprising updates.
Kevin Jamal Woods as Stymie
Stymie was the vice president of the rascals’ He-Man Women-Haters Club. He became furious upon learning that Alfalfa wanted a relationship with Darla, and was intent on winning her over. This role was played by Kevin Jamal Woods, and he did a wonderful job in showing Stymie’s personality. He is remembered for his signature hat and his angst about girls.
Stymie’s heated lines are hilarious and unforgettable. How he’d blurt out, “wood doesn’t grow on trees!” and “if we were your kids, we’d punish ourselves!” But perhaps the funniest part was how he fell for his girlfriend, played by Raven-Symoné, in the end.
