He had one of those faces and voices that were so iconic to our childhood, yet most of us have no idea what happened to him. Blake McIver played a few very notable roles including Waldo Aloysius Johnston III in The Little Rascals and also Derek in Full House.
He was around for a lot of our childhood but then sort of vanished from the public eye. It's weird that you don't hear about him as much anymore because his singing voice was always so memorable! I mean he got to belt it out in almost every role he played.
Who can forget when he serenaded Darla in that super adorable white suit? Sure, we knew Darla was supposed to be in love with Alfalfa, but that kid the kind of confidence that most people wish for. Can you believe Little Rascals came out more than 20 years ago?
He also got to sing on Full House! Michelle helped him get over some stage fright so Derek could sing the Elton John classic "Don't Go Breakin' My Heart" and wow do they ever kill it. they even break Joey's glasses!
He always seemed to play a similar character no matter what he was in... Maybe they just needed an excuse to always get him to sing because they knew that's what everyone would want.
Now that you remember him you should check out the next page to see how he looks now. It's really quite the transformation!
Well, Blake McIver is all grown up now and wow does he ever look different. The man is no longer wearing goofy suits that are a bit too big or giant dork glasses, he is now super buff and super handsome.
Sure, those cheekbones are still present along with that strong jawline. His hair is a little more relaxed than it used to be, but he can still sing super well!
He has actually put out a few songs of his own in recent years and has actually been a part of the Bravo show The People's Couch.
He also held a concert recently as a tribute to Barbara Streisand called Blake Sings Barbara.
