    William Thomas, the man known as "Buckwheat," one of the most beloved characters in the history of the Our Gang and Little Rascals films, rose from obscurity to become an American icon. Billy's heritage grew to be more than the 93 comedies in which he appeared as Buckwheat. He was a husband, father, and soldier. Several generations have come to know Buckwheat as if he was a real person, but few knew Billy, the man behind the myth.

    Story

    "Otay" is an absolute delight to listen to. It is a wonderful biography of an American Icon of who so many of us have grown up with. Our Gang film shorts (also known as The Little Rascals) have been entertaining generation after generation since the 1920's and Billy Thomas as "Buckwheat" is one of its most memorable characters. While listening to "Otay" I found myself keenly interested to the story line no doubt due to the superb narration done by Bryan Hendrickson. It is simply just fantastic the way Bryan keeps you captivated from beginning to end and hopefully this will not be his last narration. As I said "Otay is a delightful listen and its short enough to listen to during your lunch hour or during your commute. I highly recommend this Audio Book.
