Here's a few mysteries and strange phenomenon I've run across in the haphazard would-be Our Gang continuity:
- How many boys were named Spanky and Wheezer in the neighborhood and why did they all look like the same two boys?
- Whose family did Echo DeBorba belong to? Jackie Cooper or Dickie Moore?
- Why were Alfalfa and Slim first billed as "Tom and Jerry" in their first Beginner's Luck appearance? Are these the real first names of the characters?
- Why did Spanky's little sister Baby Patsy turn into a little brother, Junior, in later shorts, and where was Porky hiding before he appeared in Little Sinner?
- Could the Marvin Trin and Billy Wolfstone characters have been brothers? Was Bobby Dean also one of their brothers?
- What was Butch's real last name? Bond - Rafferty - McGann? Was he the same boy from The International Silver String Submarine Band and if so, why did he briefly leave Greenpoint?
- Which of the girls seen in the series are the mysterious MacGillicuddy Girls?
- Why did so many Greenpoint orphans at Gramercy Orphanage, Happy Home Orphanage and Happyland Home Orphanage resemble regular neighborhood kids with regular families?
- What did Alfalfa do to get sent away for one semester at Dover Military Academy?
- How many brothers and sisters did Farina have, and were some of them actually the same sibling? Could Stymie Beard have been one of them?
- Which of the shorts were regular Joe Cobb and which were the wealthy Joe Cobb from Baby Brother?
- What did happen to Miss Crabtree? Did she get married after only three years as a school teacher?
- What happened to Mr. Crutch and his wife when they lost their positions at Happy Home Orphanage?
- What happened to the The Magic Lamp from Shrimps For A Day? Did it ever pass into the hands of Dickie Moore?
- Was Greenpoint on the west coast or the east coast, and was it a big town as in Official Officers or a small rural port village as suggested in Shiver My Timbers?
- Why did the Greenpoint Police Department seem to have such a high turnover rate in officers?
- What eventually happened in the relationship between Alfalfa and Darla? Who did Spanky eventually end up up dating?
- Where did the Little Rascal characters go when their actor counterparts left the Our Gang series? Did they all attend one giant high school together out of town?
