This was one of the best movies to watch growing up in the 90s. A group of mischievous kids, a Soap Box Derby, treachery between friends, and an elusive girl - it's got it all!

The Three Best Friends

Don't worry too much about the fighting on the screen, Spanky, Alfalfa, and Woim were actually all best friends with one another!

We Just Wanna Dance!

They sure looked like they were having fun up on that stage! As it turns out, the two of them wanted to learn the proper dance choreography for this scene but were told to just "goof off" for the scene.
