Two of my favorite Saturday morning television programs were Far Out Space Nuts and the animated Little Rascals. This portion of my site is dedicated to Patty Maloney, the talented dwarf actress (3 feet 11 inches, 60 pounds) who worked on both of those shows. I have had email contact, and later telephone contact, with her since August 2003. I had thought she retired from acting in 1999, but she now lives in Florida, and wants to do more animation voice work. Her most recent screen appearance was in Hanlet, a 2011 documentary about the making of The Star Wars Holiday Special.
These pages are done on my own behalf, intended solely to express my admiration for Ms. Maloney, and to encourage respect for little people. I am interested in video captures from Patty’s movie and television appearances.
For some time, I had thought that since Hanna-Barbera and King World worked together on the Little Rascals animated series, CBS (as the successor to King World) had at least partial ownership interest in it. Indeed, Wikipedia says that the H-B Little Rascals series is not part of the Turner Entertainment library, so Warner Bros.’ rights to the series are in question. I understand, however, that Cartoon Network UK & Ireland once reran the H-B Little Rascals cartoons, as did the Seven Network in Australia. I further understand that The Little Rascals has been dubbed into Spanish, French and German.
With regard to Far Out Space Nuts, at least one episode has appeared in DVD format on a Krofft compilation disc. I have yet to see an official DVD release of the entire series.
I have begun a gallery of Darla Hood animation images and an episode guide for the Little Rascals cartoon series. I would like model sheets, production drawings, cels and especially stills from the cartoons as they were broadcast over ABC. I would gladly consider purchasing these images if they are for sale.
