“Our Gang,” a series of comedy short films about a group of poor neighborhood children and their adventures, began in 1922 as a series of silent shorts and they were created with sound in 1929. Landy was known for watching the action with an occasional one liner.

In the 1950s, the comedy series was syndicated for television and re-titled “The Little Rascals.” Hal Roach produced both productions.
