    Default "Butch" of the Little Rascals has died

    Butch of 'Little Rascals' dead

    Monday, September 26, 2005; Posted: 9:53 a.m. EDT (13:53 GMT)

    LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Thomas Ross Bond, who played Butch the bully in the "Our Gang" and "The Little Rascals" movies of the 1930s, died Saturday of complications from heart disease. He was 79.

    Bond died at Northridge Hospital, said his manager, Frank Marks.

    Bond played a member of the Gang named Tommy. After his first year he was dropped from the cast but returned later in the role of Butch, the archenemy of Alfalfa.

    Bond appeared in dozens of "Our Gang" and "Little Rascals" features before outgrowing the role.

    Born September 16, 1926, in Dallas, Bond got his start at age 5 when a talent scout for Hal Roach studios approached him as he was leaving a movie theater with his mother.

    In the 1940s, Bond played Jimmy Olsen in two Superman movies and appeared as Joey Pepper in several installments of the "Five Little Peppers" serial.

    In 1951, Bond quit acting and went into television directing and production work before retiring in 1991.



    Thomas Ross Bond shares a laugh with George "Spanky" McFarland in 1992.

    How sad that all the personalities and actors we grew up with are passing on.

    Bummer.
