Scrappy the Impresario
19 March 2015 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Scrappy is preparing Oopie for his big performance tonight -- somehow Oopie is a master of the classical bass -- but Oopie would rather play in the mud. The weird gags come fast and furious in this example of a largely and unjustly forgotten cartoon series.

This is a better than usual Scrappy cartoon. All too often, Dick Huemer's bizarre series for Charles Mintz have great starts, then run out of ideas halfway through and settle into the usual cartoon tropes. Not this time! Not only do the gags come at a machine gun clip throughout, but they are often particularly bizarre. Scrappy, at the series' best, offered a funny yet psychologically true child's-eye view of the world in its weird interpretation of details. Here's one at the series' best.
