The following is a list of the filmographies which I've compiled so far. I've been gradually going through the
cast and crew members for the series, more or less chronologically. Admittedly, these pages are less of a priority than the film
pages elsewhere on the website, so it's been pretty slow-going when it comes to adding new ones. I'm also not
quite as diligent about checking the facts on the filmographies as I am on the film pages, and often lean on the Internet
Movie Database, so this is definitely an area where input from readers is both desired and encouraged. My thanks to Matthew
Lydick for his assistance on many of these pages. If you see anything that needs changing on any of these pages, be sure to
contact me at BtheW@aol.com, and let me know.
1922 to 1931. Farina started early in the first season as an infant and stayed with the series for nine years, returning shortly afterwards for
one reunion appearance. He appeared in 106 Our Gang films, more than any other person.
1922 to 1929. Joe joined up midway through the first season and stayed for seven years. Often nicknamed "Fatty" in the press, he
was always known by his real name in the series. He returned on three occasions during the 1930s.
1922 to 1926. Mickey joined very early on and quickly established himself as the leader of the gang, and was typically the lead character in
the films. Often nicknamed "Freckles" in the press, he was always known by his real name in the series. He stayed for four years and returned
twice as an adult in the 1930s.
1927 to 1933. Wheezer was the tagalong younger kid during most of his time with the series. As he grew into the older set of kids, he was pushed into
more of a supporting role while newer members took the spotlight.
Roach was credited onscreen as the presenter of the films, and offscreen as both a producer and story
writer. His role as producer was curtailed somewhat during the late silent and early talkie eras, as Robert McGowan was
given onscreen credit for this.
McGowan directed most of the Our Gang films until the end of 1933, and returned two years later to direct
one more. During the latter part of his tenure with the series, he also received production and story
He was an assistant general manager, production manager, purchasing agent, etc. etc. at the Roach studio.
Whatever casual involvement he had with Our Gang probably ended when he became Laurel & Hardy's production manager
