'The Little Rascals' Reunion
In a podcast interview, Woods revealed that he kept in touch with the other actors of The Little Rascals through social media and most of them discontinued acting.
"…Twitter and Facebook is really how I've kept up with the rest of the cast members, yeah it's I mean we all kind of got our own lives now so it's it's kind of difficult to reconnect but I still follow everyone because they all seem to be doing interesting things…"
Then, in 2014, on the 20th anniversary of The Little Rascals, the production company, 22-Vision, invited the movie's actors for the anniversary celebration. Woods joined the reunion and recreated the movie posters and famous picture shots.
He expressed his opinion about the reunion, "…kind of like okay so as you know we did that 20-year reunion thing…and that was the first time in like at least 15 years yeah no like 20 years not 20 but 10 years that I had seen a couple of the other cast members like, Spanky the guy who played Spanky, uh Travis Pepper and I used to be really cool but that was back when I lived in California and then when we both moved back to Texas we moved to different parts of Texas so we hadn't really seen each other since like 2000. So, it was kind of cool to reconnect with everyone there…"
