Froggy is my favorite. That voice of his was just down right hilarious to hear lol. Jackie Condon from the silents i would have to say was the best from those shorts. I also liked Kendall Breezy Bribane even though he only lasted a season.

I would have to say Spanky. He was always my favorite. I have an autographed picture from him somewhere in my parents' attic, and I actually called him and talked to him briefly around 1984. It was actually kind of disappointing. He wasn't exactly thrilled to have me call him at home. But he's still my favorite, particularly in the earlier years.
I always heard Spanky was very bitter later in life. I think it's mostly because he was short on cash and never received any residuals.
I saw an auction on eBay a few times for the rude nasty letter that Spanky wrote in reply to the sender who sent a photo asking to return it autographed. He wrote that he doesn't sign unauthorized photos, and if I remember correctly, he made fun of his spelling and/or grammar. I don't know if I would have ever wanted to see him in person or not, knowing his attitude towards his fans.
Although I consider Chubby to be the funniest Our Gang-er, Peggy Cartwright is my all-time favorite. Though she only appeared in the first six "Our Gang" shorts, she was the prettiest leading lady of them all.
