[on his years with the Little Rascals] "I wouldn't take a million dollars for the experience...and I wouldn't take a penny to do it again. As a kid I had everything I wanted, we had a good life but when it was over....it was over."
Got the nickname Spanky when he was misbehaving on the Hal Roach lot during his first days there. His mother took him aside and threatened to punish him, saying, "Spanky, spanky; mustn't touch." Studio dialogue writer/editorial department head H.M. Walker
overheard Mrs. McFarland using this phrase, and he had the youngster dubbed "Spanky."
Catchphrases: "Okey-dokey!" and its variant, "Okey-doke!". He said "Okey-dokey", much more often than "Okey-doke".
