The Little Rascals
We can't pick just one favorite kid in The Little Rascals—they're all cartoonishly adorable.
Dakota Fanning in Uptown Girls
Dakota Fanning is the tiny queen of all child stars, and while she's done some amazing dramatic work, Uptown Girls is a guilty pleasure.
Lily in Sex and The City
So what if she kind of inadvertently ruins Big and Carrie's wedding? Charlotte's daughter Lily in the Sex and the City is still lovely.
Jonathan Taylor Thomas in Man of the House
Jonathan Taylor Thomas is so much more than Home Improvement and Lion King. His funny lead role trying to destroy Chevy Chase in Man of the House is an underrated gem.
Tina Majorino in Andre

A Little Princess
A Little Princess is a tearjerker for many reasons, so let's just pick one scene: Liesel Matthews saying, "I am a princess. All girls are. Didn't your father ever tell you that? Didn't he?
So what if his conception is drunken and creepy? The little tot in The Switch is such a wonderful Jason Bateman impersonator that we love him as much as the real JB.

Abigail Breslin in Little Miss Sunshine
Helping Abigail Breslin get even cuter in Little Miss Sunshine? The fake belly she wore for the role!
