Travis Tedford portrayed Spanky, a character we all loved. He was loyal, supportive, and the President of the He-Man Women Haters Club. Spanky was also Alfalfa’s best buddy. But like all friendships in real life, they did have some challenges, too.
While Spanky is at first opposed to his best bud’s relationship with Darla (not surprising, given the name of the club he presides over!), he really does have his friend’s best interests at heart. He is such a cool and reliable kid, an apt leader for The Little Rascals gang.
Kevin Jamal Woods as Stymie
Stymie was the vice president of the rascals’ He-Man Women-Haters Club. He became furious when he learned that Alfalfa was interested in a relationship with Darla, and was planning on winning her over. This role was played by Kevin Jamal Woods, and he did a wonderful job of showing Stymie’s personality. He is remembered for his signature hat and his angst about girls.
Stymie’s heated lines are hilarious and unforgettable. Among the most memorable ones are, “If we were your kids, we’d punish ourselves!” and “Wood doesn’t grow on trees!”
Kevin Jamal Woods's Career
Kevin Jamal Woods is pretty serious when talking about his passion: music. He longed to become the go-to guy in the music production industry, and so dedicated most of his time to learning, and eventually getting a degree in, audio engineering.
Woods works for a media research firm. Not many films and appearances would follow for him after The Little Rascals, but he did appear on our TV screens in "Blossom" and "Walker, Texas Ranger." His last movie appearance was back in 2000, in "The Brainiacs.com"
Travis Tedford's Career
Travis Tedford was lucky to start his acting career playing a major role in a much-loved movie. But, after "The Little Rascals", it was hard for him to find different character types, as casting directors couldn’t separate Spanky from the actor.
Tedford appeared on "The Amanda Show" and in films like "Slappy and The Stinkers", "Freaky Friday" and, "The Final". Nowadays, he is working at Texas Trust Credit Union as a marketing specialist. He quit acting and earned a degree in liberal arts.
Zachary Mabry as Porky
Zachary Mabry was only four years old when he played the role of Porky. His innocence certainly shone through. He was so cute that fans would just giggle each time he was up along with his buddies Buckwheat, Petey the dog, and Elmer the monkey.
The gang would play Sherlock Holmes-type detective roles and would stumble upon a secret note, only to realize not one of them could read what was written on it. This was one of their more memorable parts in the movie.
