Birth: Oct. 29, 1916
Death: Oct. 15, 1981

Kendall was an American former child actor.
Born in Holton, Kansas, McComas first appeared in the Mickey McGuire short subjects series as a member of Mickey McGuire's gang throughout the series run in the silent era. He also played the role of Stinky Davis in some of the series' earliest sound shorts. In 1931, he joined the Our Gang series.
Even though he was well into his teens during his Our Gang tenure, McComas was very short for his age and capably portrayed his grade-school-age character "Breezy Brisbane." Breezy's mother refers to him as "Brisbane" in the films Readin' and Writin' and Spanky the only shorts in which that name appears; the kids refer to him as "Breezy." However, the Leonard Maltin/Richard Bann book The Little Rascals: The Life & Times of Our Gang lists his character as "Breezy Brisbane," a name which does not appear in dialogue in any of the shorts in which McComas appears.
After growing up, he left show business and became an electrical engineer at the U.S. Naval Weapons Center in China Lake, California.
Kendall McComas was being forced into retirement upon his 65th birthday in 1981. Saddened, he committed suicide two weeks earlier on October 15, 1981.

One of my favorite characters from the Our Gang comedies. Rest in Peace, Breezy.
