The quintessential Eighties kids adventure movie, “The Goonies” came out 25 years ago today, on June 7, 1985. Where would we be without the hunt for One-Eyed Willie’s gold, the run from the murderous Fratelli family and the infamous Truffle Shuffle?

Ever wonder where those little goobers are now?

Sean Astin: He played the leader of the group, Mikey Walsh. The son of Patty Duke and adopted son of “Addams Family” star John Astin would go on to play the steadfast hobbit Samwise Gamgee in Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy and now voices the title character in Disney Channel’s “Special Agent Oso.”

Corey Feldman: The surviving member of “The Two Coreys” is an animal rights activist and reality TV star who has reprised his role in the ’80s horror film “The Lost Boys” for a direct-to-disc sequel.

Jonathan Ke Quan: “Data,” the little superspy gadget man, appears to have gone underground for the most part, save for scattered acting roles that include an appearance in 1992’s “Encino Man.”

Jeff Cohen: Chunk, he of the Truffle Shuffle, has his own entertainment law firm in Beverly Hills.

Josh Brolin: Mikey’s big brother “Brand” went on to big things, including Oliver Stone’s “W,” “No Country for Old Men” and “Milk.”

Kerri Green: The cheerleader girlfriend of Brand Walsh, she went behind the scenes in production and screenwriting.

Martha Plimpton: The daughter of Keith Carradine, the nerdy Stef in “The Goonies” was her big break. She was recently seen in a pivotal role as a Pacific Northwest sheriff in a late-season episode of “Fringe.”
