REMEMBERING MAMA CASS ELLIOTT   Dream a Little Dream Cass Elliot was born Ellen Naomi Cohen on Sept 19th 1941. Her restauranteur father nicknamed her'Cass' after the Trojan princess, Cassandra. She adopted the name Cass Elliot during her teens. The name Mama Cass evolved from her involvement with the Mamas and Papas. This is what John Phillips said about Cass in an interview in August 1995 at Paramount Studios: "Her father had a deli in New York. I remember her as a little, chubby girl, with the stained apron on, behind the counter. [Laughs] We were sort of infamous in that area, and when she got to New York, she knew who we were, but we didn't know who she was. And she had met Denny, and Denny said, "I know this girl that sings wonderfully. We should have her over and sing with her." It happened to be that LSD was actually legal at the time. It wasn't a banned drug or anything. We searched all over the Village and found some contemporary artist who had some and he gave it to us. We were about to take it that night, when the knock on the door came and Cass came in. So we all had it together the same night, for the first time, and I think that formed a bond between the four of us that we just never stopped singing. We just went on and on and on and on, until the trip wore off, which was about four years later." Cass Elliott died July 29, 1974. Contrary to what many people have been led to believe over the years, she did not choke on a sandwich. According to her doctor, the cause was heart failure.

Chubby - Our Gang In 1929 Norman (Chubbby) Chaney replaced Joe Cobb as the resident fat boy in the popular Hal Roach-produced Our Gang comedies when they went from silents to talkies. Chaney was supposed to be 11 years old at the time, but later research revealed he was actually born in 1914 rather than 1918. (The 1920 Baltimore census lists him as a six-year-old.) Chaney made 19 Our Gang shorts through 1931 after which his contract was not renewed. He never acted again. Suffering from a glandular condition, Chaney never grew beyond 4'11". His weight ballooned to over 300 pounds. In 1935 he underwent a corrective surgical procedure which decreased his weight to less than 140 pounds. His health was severely affected, though. Chaney died from myocarditis in 1936 at the age of 21. For 76 years Chaney was buried in an unmarked pauper's grave in a Baltimore cemetery--until fans raised $4000 for a granite headstone in 2012.

Our Gang - Dorothy DeBorba Dorothy DeBorba was a regular in the early talking period of the Our Gang comedies. Recognizable by her Mary Pickford-type curls and hair ribbons, DeBorba was sometimes referred to as 'Echo' because she liked to repeat other characters' comments--or at least try. Years later DeBorba opined that the boys in the troupe always got the best lines. Yet she uttered some of the funniest lines in the long history of the Our Gang comedies. DeBorba's famous dialogue occurs in 'Love Business' when she tries to repeat the romantic lines lovesick Chubby was practising. Chubby: 'Oh, my darling, can you hear the pleas in my whispers?' Dorothy: 'Darling, I can hear the fleas in your whiskers.' Chubby: 'If love is like a rose, I will pick my rose in a bud.' Dorothy: 'If love is like a rose, I will stick my nose in the mud.' Chubby: 'My heart is filled with joy. I want to trip and dance.' Dorothy: 'My heart is filled with joy. I want to rip my pants.' DeBorba appeared in 24 Our Gang comedies from 1930 to 1933. She died from emphysema at age 85 on June 2, 2010.

Chubby Gets a Headstone - 2012 Norman (Chubby) Chaney was the first member of the Our Gang troupe to die. He passed away in May 1936 at age 21 from myocarditis and a glandular condition. His family could not afford to buy a headstone for Norman's grave in the Baltimore cemetery where he is interred, so his final resting place was unmarked for 76 years. However, in 2012, an online fund-raiser solicited more than $4,000 in donations to have this attractive black granite marker erected on the gravesite. About a dozen Our Gang fans attended the official unveiling on November 10, 2012.
