Buckwheat, Alfalfa, Spanky, and Porky in hats initiating Junior and Leonard into the All-4-One Club in Alfalfa's Aunt


The All-4-One Club is the successor club to the Eagles Club. It has gone through several varying guises and name variations, but its basic intention is to keep the spirit of the gang's bond of friendship together. Spanky McFarland and Alfalfa Switzer seem to have founded this "no incentive" club, basing it on the credo of "The Three Musketeers," but it is Cousin Wilbur who converts the club to include accident insurance policies against bullies until Butch tries to put them out of business. As a counter to the group, Butch later forms a loan-shark operation. Based in Spanky's old barn, the club doubles as a kiddie acting troupe. Among the things they carry on are putting on shows to endorse Waldo's lemonade, teach Mickey's parents a lesson, and save Alfalfa from his "murderous" Aunt Penelope. Spanky and Alfalfa are followed by Mickey as club president, who expands the club's name to the "All-For-One-And-One-For-All Club," and despite a vigorous election with Froggy Laughlin, he's replaced by Janet Burston.

Although the club was not featured, in the 1982 animated episode "Cap'n Spanky's Showboat", the chant "One for all, and all for one" was uttered by the Rascals.

It is unknown if the club's name may have inspired the name of the rhythm and blues group All-4-One, famous for their 1994 song "I Swear."
