Red-haired, freckle-faced American child star of the Our Gang (and later The Boy Friends) films whose exaggerated laugh resembled that of a chipmonk.  He was often paired with Mary Kornman, who played his love interest on film (she was actually a good friend of his family in real life).  Was paid $37.50 per week during his first six months on the Pathé Studio lot in 1922.  Two years later he was making $175 per week.
Was divorced with a daughter at the time of his death.  Found dead in a motel residence in San Diego where he was working as a taxi driver.
One of ten children; his father was Richard Daniels, whom Mickey occasionally appeared on-screen with.
Real name: Richard Daniels Jr. Films listed on this page: complete Hal Roach filmography.
