See Ya, Butch

'Little Rascals' Actor Thomas Bond Dies

LOS ANGELES - Thomas Ross Bond, who played Butch the bully in the "Our Gang" and "The Little Rascals" serials of the 1930s, has died. He was 79.

The Rascals were staple fare when I was a kid. Long before infomercials, junk sports, and bad reality TV, there were reruns. Old movies, serials, and groundbreaking TV shows. I figure that the Rascals were seen maybe 10 times a week on one station or another, and how I hated it when Butch picked on Alfalfa. Save us a good seat, Tom
