    I just looked and came up with this:

    Cooper first appeared in the short Boxing Gloves in 1929, one of the Our Gang comedies.

    follow alleng's link - http://www.cyranos.ch/ourg-e.htm

    Jackie Cooper (1922) - filmography

    Jackie Cooper was born on 15th September 1921 in Los Angeles.

    At the age of three he came to the show business. Even though he "only" played in 15 episodes of Our Gang (between 1929 and 1931), he counts to the well-known players.

    He left the Gang in 1931 in order to take on the leading role in the movie Skippy (his uncle, the famous director Norman Taurog, directed), which established his real film career and he became a star. Cooper was even awarded for an Oscar nomination as best actor for Skippy. He belonged to the top child actors in the 30's.

    Jackie Cooper was able to continue the most successful career of all Our Gang members after the time of the gang. With movies like "The Champ" (31), "The Bowery" (33), "Treasure Island" (34), Peck's Bad Boy" (34) and "Treasure Island" he played himself into the hearts of the audience.

    But as an adult it was more difficult to obtain good offers for movies. He acted among others in „Boy of the Streets“ (38), „The Return of Frank James“ (40) and „Ziegfeld Girl“ (41), which demonstrated his capabilities.

    His career was interrupted during World War II because he went to the Navy. After his return he got the necessary refinement at theaters in order to continue his actor career. Especially through TV serials he became a popular actor, among others in „The People‘s Choice“ and in the cinema serial around Superman with Christopher Reeve.
