There are few things in the world that make you feel older than to see movies when you were a child celebrate milestone anniversaries. The truth is that we see this happen all the time, but today we are specifically looking back on the 1994 film Little Rascals, which has celebrated its 20th year in existence with a very special reunion:
That Tweet comes to us from Travis Tedford, who you may remember played Spanky in the Penelope Spheeris-directed film, and the image was taken as part of a event from the production company 22 Vision. The reunion poster was created with the help of the nine of the original actors from the film (you have to know that the dog who played Petey is dead by now), who were apparently more than game to put on adult versions of their costumes and do a reenactment.
But if you think that they stopped with the poster, you'd be dead wrong. Entertainment Tonight has also posted a fully gallery of extra images that include actors Bug Hall (Alfalfa) and Travis Tedford (Spanky) back in their ballerina tutus:
Hall also did a redo of the scene where he burps bubbles while proclaiming his love for Darla (Brittany Ashton Holmes), and he is posed with Black McIver Ewing (who played the uptight Waldo) looking on:
While I do personally remember seeing The Little Rascals with my friends, I must admit that I am a bit surprised by this little "nostalgia boom." The film wasn't exactly a runaway box office success - making $52 million during its August release - and I can't swear that I've actually heard anybody talk about it in over a decade. But then again, it is entirely possible that I am on the outside looking in on this one, and I certainly wouldn't want to rain on anybody's parade. Are you thrilled to see the entire gang back together after 20 full years? Are you sincerely disappointed that neither the Olsen Twins nor Whoopi Goldberg nor Mel Brooks showed up for the reunion? Tell us what you're thinking in the comments below, and head over to the next page to watch a video of the reunion:
