Oh, Darla! Our Little Rascal is all grown up.
Nearly 21 years ago, child actor Bug Hall stood out as the lovable Alfalfa in The Little Rascals, but he’s not a child actor any more. He’s not as clean cut as he once was, either. BuzzFeed recently sifted through his Twitter and Instagram accounts and unearthed photos of the all-grown-up Hall, who is practically unrecognizable.

Yup, that’s Alfalfa. Hall has unleashed the beast. Now 30 years old — and an uncle, as we determined through some good old fashioned Twitter stalking — he’s now known for a different signature hair style. His child self sported his now infamous hairdo, but as an adult his luscious and ever-flowing beard is all anyone can talk about. I mean, look at that puppy. Actually, scratch puppy. It’s more like a dire wolf of Winterfell.

Since posted to BuzzFeed, Hall’s photos have gone viral, becoming trends on Facebook and Twitter, and getting coverage from the likes of US Weekly, Perez Hilton and Entertainment Weekly. The best part is that Hall, who seems floored that his latest look is drawing so many stares, has responded back with an extra special gift for BuzzFeed.

One more for good measure.

And if you wanna know what Hall’s fellow Rascals star Blake McIver, aka Walda, looks like today, watch his music video (yes, music video) called “This Is Who We Are.”
