    Description

    "Froggy" Signed Photo to Buckwheat. 3 "x 4" portrait of Our Gang's "Froggy," signed in black ink, "To Buckwheat from Froggy." This ultra-rare autographed picture commemorates one of the Gang's most vividly-remembered members, whose basso voice (developed as he practiced with a Popeye dummy, given him by his mother) was a crowd-pleaser in nearly 30 Our Gang comedies from 1940 to 1944. Tragically, "Froggy" (whose real name was Billy Laughlin) died in August of 1948, in a motorbike accident while delivering newspapers, at the age of only 16. The photo has a small stain near (but not touching) Froggy's face; the verso is stamped with the photographers's name and Los Angeles address and telephone number. Overall Fine + condition. An endearing (and considering Laughlin's early death) touching signed shot, from one Our Gang star to another. From the William "Buckwheat" Thomas Jr. Estate.
