    That’s life in Hollywood as a child actor for you! I had no idea Robert Blake was Spanky! Go figure, of the ones that died, the only one who outlived the others committed suicide.

    I have wondered from time to time about these characters. I loved watching this show as a child. Too bad some of them lost their lives so young and suddenly.

    I had figured after all of this time that most of them would be gone… but I didn’t realize that Spanky was Robert Blake!
