Charles Douglas Greer (May 21, 1921 – January 6, 2016) was an American child actor. He was a semi-regular actor in Our Gang between 1930 and 1932, but also appeared in some feature films besides the gang. He often appeared in roles as a tough kid.


Born in Canada, he moved with his family to Glendale, California in 1924. He began working in the movies at age seven after winning a freckle contest. His freckles earned him the name "Turkey Egg" by Our Gang director Robert F. McGowan. After his retirement from movie business in 1934, Greer founded a successful company for laboratory furniture and supply company. During World War II, Greer was a member of the 10th Mountain Division. He was also a magician and member of the Magic Castle Club. In his later years, Greer was also interviewed in some documentaries about Our Gang.

Douglas Greer was married with his wife Doris Greer for 40 years until her death. They had children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
