With the advent of television, Hal Roach’s Our Gang shorts were packaged into half-hour blocks and sold into syndication.
Alfalfa, Darla, Spanky, Buckwheat, and the gang were put into every situation imaginable, from “He-Man Woman Hater” club meetings to homemade carnivals. They were inevitably accompanied by the gang’s dog, Petie.

In 1979, The Little Rascals returned to Saturday morning in animated form on The Little Rascals/Richie Rich Show, which later became The Pac-Man/Little Rascals/Richie Rich Show.
