Where are they now? Hood’s adult career was as a very successful nightclub singer and recording artist, appearing in clubs across the country, as well on radio and television shows.
As an adult she even made an appearance in the cult horror movie The Bat. She also had a hit record in 1957, I Just Wanna Be Free.

In the 60s she began appearing at Our Gang fan conventions and also did voiceover work for commercials.
