The Little Rascals (1994)

The 1994 remake of “The Little Rascals” was filmed around Southern California. The boys’ “He-Man Womun Haters Club” formerly sat on a hillside overlooking Downtown Los Angeles. The location was on Figueroa Terrace, but as is the case with most open land in Los Angeles from decades ago, the area has since been developed. Here is the general vicinity where the clubhouse would have been.

LOCATION: 1031 Figueroa Terrace, Los Angeles, CA 90012

Looking the opposite direction at N Beaudry Ave, the road can actually be seen in the background of several shots of the clubhouse, such as when Waldo leaves with Darla.

The canal where Alfalfa serenades Darla can be found at the Venice Canals near Venice Beach. This location still largely looks the same as it did in the film. There are numerous bridges in the neighborhood. The boys eavesdrop over their boat at the bridge connecting Linnie Canal to Court C. The exact same bridge has also appeared in some very different films, including “A Nightmare On Elm Street” and Oliver Stone’s “The Doors.”

When a fire breaks out at the clubhouse, Buckwheat and Porky rush to a phone booth to call the fire station, but give up when they can’t remember the number for 9-1-1. They walk away, not noticing a fire station directly across the street. This scene was filmed in North Hollywood.

LOCATION: 5320 Tujunga Ave, Los Angeles, CA 91601

Darla’s house can be found in Burbank. The house was painted white in the film. Alfalfa brings Darla flowers, when he is suddently interrupted by Waldo and his dog.

Spanky takes Alfalfa to Darla’s ballet recital, where he insists Alfalfa break up with her. This scene was filmed at the famous Castle Green Apartments in Pasadena. The scene was shot on the side of the property facing S Raymond Ave. The boys are seen walking down this entrance, with the Stats Floral Supply building visible behind them (the white, painted letters are no longer there).

LOCATION: 99 S Raymond Ave, Pasadena, CA 91105

The boys wait outside for Darla for a bit, but have to flee inside to escape some bullies by disguising themselves as ballerinas. Most of this area is obscured by fencing and hedges from the street, but you can see into the property from a couple spots. Castle Green has been featured in countless films, such as “True Romance,” “The Sting,” “Wild At Heart,” “Deja Vu,” “Sneakers,” “Bugsy,” “The Last Samurai,” “Puppet Master” and many more.

Cheers

The exterior of the bar seen in the hit TV series “Cheers” can be found in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Boston, just across from the Boston Public Garden.  Originally known as the Bull & Finch Pub, the bar/restaurant has since changed it’s name to Cheers Beacon Hill.  The interiors of the show were of course filmed on a sound stage, not the actual restaurant, but the exterior still closely resembles how it appeared in the show.
