Hey you guuuys! Can you believe it's been over 30 years since the classic coming-of-age tale, The Goonies was released?! On June 7, 1985, audiences first followed Mikey, Chung, Mouth, Data, Brand, Andy, and Stef on a whirlwind adventure to find the long-lost fortune of One-Eyed Willie.

It's no secret that the kids from The Goonies have grown up quite a bit since the film's release - it has been three decades, after all - but just what do they look like now? Well, I'd say all look pretty damn good! Check out what "The Goonies" cast looks like right now!

Mikey - Sean Astin

Since The Goonies: Sean Astin has maintained a steady acting career with roles in film and television such as: Rudy, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, 50 First Dates, 24, Click, Special Agent Oso, Moms' Night Out, and the voice of Raphael on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In the next two years you'll see his face in upcoming projects such as Espionage TV, Unleashed and Dead Ant.

Mikey: Don't say that, never say that! Goonies never say die!

Chunk - Jeff Cohen

Since The Goonies: Jeff Cohen, loveably known as "Chunk," is far from chunky these days! He went on to attend University of California, Berkeley where he earned a B.S. in Business Administration. Following his time at Berkely, he went on to get a law degree UCLA School of Law in 2000. He currently practices entertainment law and co-founded the law firm Cohen & Gardner. Talk about a transformation!

Best quote:

Chunk: Everything. OK! I'll talk! In third grade, I cheated on my history exam. In fourth grade, I stole my uncle Max's toupee and I glued it on my face when I was Moses in my Hebrew School play. In fifth grade, I knocked my sister Edie down the stairs and I blamed it on the dog... when my mom sent me to the summer camp for fat kids and then they served lunch I got nuts and I pigged out and they kicked me out... but the worst thing I ever done - I mixed a pot of fake puke at home and then I went to this movie theater, hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony and then, t-t-then, I made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa - and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. I never felt so bad in my entire life.

Mouth - Corey Feldman

Since The Goonies: After The Goonies, Corey Feldman maintained his star status in the '80s and early '90s starring in films like: Stand by Me, The Lost Boys, The 'Burbs, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Since then, Feldman faced a handful of personal and legal woes, but has still had a number of roles in smaller films and reality TV shows. He is currently the voice of Slash in the animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show and the lead singer for the ska band Truth Movement.

More recently, you've probably seen Corey Feldman and his angels perform the new single "Go 4 It" on the Today Show, and heard about the media onslaught that ensued. You can read about it here:

Best quote:

Stef: You know your voice is kind of nice when your mouth isn't screwing it up.Mouth: Yeah and your looks are kind of pretty. When your face isn't screwing it up.

I recently watched The Goonies, and I can gladly say with certainty that it's a film that stands up to the test of time.

I wonder what kind of wild adventures the Goonies are getting into when they finish their regular workdays. Surely they must have some kind of club or at least a group text about it, right?
