Little Rascals Locations -
Our Gang Trivia


Most of the outdoor footage was shot in Palms, CA and Culver City, CA, where I grew up at 3345 Mentone Ave. Already identified are Motor Ave. (several shorts), National Blvd. (2 shorts), Overland Ave. hill, Venice Blvd., and Washington Blvd. This page seeks additional filming locations, which have been identified by OLDER MOVIE VIEWERS. I have identified about 10 locations, so I expect that I will get at least some input from older local citizens.

For example, the entire 1927 short "Olympic Games" was filmed on Motor Ave. (prominent sign), between Tabor St. and Regent St., I believe.

In the 1927 movie "Love My Dog", Dedrick's Real Estate on Motor Ave. is in a few frames, (no sign, but the building is unmistakable to me) where my grandma used to take me in 1952. Dedrick senior had been the first US Marshall in Alaska, I was told. I still remember his guns and Alaska artifacts, being a 6-8-year-old impressionable boy. Mrs. Dedrick had an entire "Praying Mantis room", which I found fascinating.

In the 1926 movie short "Monkey Business", I believe I see both Motor Ave. and National Blvd. What say you?

The 1926 movie short "Thundering Fleas", there is a rare early view of Oliver Hardy, as a policeman. I swear it is on Motor Ave.

If you are a long-time resident of Palms or Culver City, there is a treasure of images in these Our Gang shorts. The next time you watch a Little Rascals short, look closely at the background in the outdoor shots. You may be "transported back in time" by what you see. If so, please tell me. I will add your info, along with your name, if you wish.

I believe that the drug store on the corner of Motor Ave. and Tabor St. is the single most filmed, and currently recognized location. It is now a laundromat, located right next to the Palms Market.

Does anyone remember Lowe's Corn Stand on National Blvd, between Overland and Rose Ave. Grandma used to take me there around 1950, when I was 6. I would LOVE to see a PHOTO.

Also, across National from Lowe's was the back of the Congregational Church, the front of which was on Overland Ave. I can find NOTHING on this, even in my 1950 Palms Telephone Directory (complete, but very fragile). Weird. I can still see it in my mind, so I KNOW it was there!

I don't know who Mr. Bob Buttobi is, but he did what I had fantasized doing for years - except he did it far better than I could have. ALL KINDS of locations from the 1920's, centered on Motor Ave. in Palms, CA, particularly around Woodbine St. If you are old like I am (73) and grew up in Palms, you will recognize old buildings from the 1920s which he highlights with still photos and frames from Our Gang movies. Hardware store, barber shop, Dedrick's Real Estate, etc. Liberal use is made of old Sanborn fire insurance maps, which are great sources of historical info.

I particularly appreciate the multiple shots of my grandfather's Masonic Lodge on Motor at Woodbine, which was Palms Drug Store when the movies were made. The old brick 2-story building was replaced by the Judith Weston Acting Studio. This People's Water Co. building is still standing, right across Woodbine on Motor Ave.

Many thanks to Chris Logg for providing the link. I could not find this site searching Google and Bing, and without Chris, I probably would never have found it at all (it is not SEO-optimized).
