Yesterday as I was cleaning the house (at 9:00 at night, mind you) I decided to pop in one of my FAVORITE movies from my younger years. What movie? Well, none other than the 1990 hit:
Please tell me I am not the only one that loved this movie? John Ritter has always been one of my favorite actors. I was devastated when he passed away, and when the “8 Simple Rules” episode happens to be rerun on ABC Family (The one they were filming when he died and they incorporate that into the show.) Full fledged water works. Rest in peace, John.
Anyway, I love this movie! After it was over, I got to thinking…I wonder what Junior looks like today? I consulted Google (naturally) and I found out that his last film appearance was in 1995. He was only ever in 7 movies, including Problem Child 2! Oh, and here’s what he looks like now:
Although I’m not really digging the long hair (and I’m sure this isn’t the most recent picture of him), his face looks exactly the same. There is no denying that this man once played the part of Junior, the fiery red-headed Devil Child :)
Naturally, after watching Problem Child…I had to also watch Problem Child 2! (I really do love these movies if you couldn’t tell!) Problem Child 2 came out one year later in 1991 and introduced us to Junior’s female counterpart, Trixie!
Remember this face? Here is what she looks like now:
Same little Trixie face and all :)
Obviously, watching these movies last night inspired today’s post. There are a few other child stars I’d like to reminisce about:
Anna Chlumsky as Vada Sultenfuss in 1991’s My Girl
How about Andrea Barber as Kimmy Gibbler in Full House?
(I follow Andrea on Twitter! You can follow her here.)
Speaking of Little Rascals…remember Alfalfa? Well, he looks like this now:
Who are your favorite Child Stars?
