Can you believe it's been more than 20 years since The Little Rascals got a 1994 reboot? Can you believe Spanky actually seems like a totally reasonable kids' name these days? Can you believe you're about to get a crush on Alfalfa, Buckwheat, and Waldo?

Thanks to IMDb and Instagram, we've got all the details on how well the hit film's stars have grown up. Many of them continue to act, posting fancy new headshots so they can draw adult roles and not, say, auditions to play precocious go-karting enthusiasts. Can you blame them?

Take Blake McIver Ewing, who played bratty nemesis Waldo. These days he's starring on reality show The People's Couch, with a slew of voice-acting roles (Tarzan, Hey Arnold!) under his belt. The 30-year-old also studied at UCLA, and looks like this now.


You'll probably recognize Ross Bagley (a.k.a. Buckwheat) from his other cute-kid roles in Independence Day and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Having graduated from California State, he's now returning to acting, with two projects in the pipeline for 2015 (Dead Ringer and Gilded Cage). He may or not have also been hanging out at the gym.

That brings us to Bug Hall, who played loverboy Alfalfa. The native Texan has acted consistently since his childhood fame, including appearances on Masters of Sex and CSI. And, yes, he still knows how to rock an interesting hairstyle.

Pretty impressive, guys. Darla never knew how good she had it.
