1930s & Earlier / Our Gang - Joe Cobb
Joe Cobb was the original 'fat boy' character in the Our Gang comedies. He appeared in 86 short films; the vast majority of them were silent movies. Debuting in 1923, Cobb was the first Our Gang character to sport a beanie. Cobb was born in Oklahoma. His acting career began by accident. When Cobb and his father were vacationing in Los Angeles he was spotted by producer Hal Roach who was looking for a jolly fat kid for the Our Gang troupe. Cobb's tenure on Our Gang ended in 1930, but he made three cameo appearances in later Our Gang films during the mid-1930s. His acting career ended in 1940. Shortly thereafter he got a job in an aircraft plant. He worked there until retiring in 1981. Cobb died in 2002. He was 85 years old.
