Petey was the Pit Bull on the show “Our Gang”, later known as “The Little Rascals”. Petey became just as popular as the kids themselves. Many People do not know that Petey was a few dogs. There was Pal who played Petey, and when he passed away, one of his offspring, Lucenay, took over. Lucenay was the most remembered, and popular of the other Pit Bulls that played Petey. Lucenay died in 1946, just two years after the show was cancelled. So not only did one Pit Bull get along with all of the Rascals, but a few dogs were like family to the Little Rascals.
